Mary Ann Wapachee Quietly Leaves Us

It is with sad regret that the Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal, Nakuset, Executive Director and the Board inform the Aboriginal community of Montreal that Mary Ann Wapachee, James Bay Cree from Mistissini, Québec, passed away in the early morning of Thursday, December 2, 2010 at 52 years.
Mary Ann Wapachee leaves behind her companion and special friend, Charlie, and her children, Darlene, Stephanie and Alex.
Mary Ann was well-known among Montreal community members for her smile, her enthusiasm and support of the community. She worked with the Native Friendship Centre of Montreal, the Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal and she participated in many community events.
Most recently, Mary Ann was the well-loved cook and the friend of the women of the Native Women’s Shelter of Montreal.  She will be deeply missed by all.
An Aboriginal community memorial service and celebration of her life by friends and family will be held on Sunday at 13h00 at the Native Friendship Centre of Montréal, 2001 boulevard St-Laurent, Montréal, Québec. A community feast «mookasan» will follow. Food donations are welcome.
