ELLEN IRELAND

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Ellen, at the age of 82. She is survived by one brother, Jack (June), 7 children Sheila (Jim), Karen, Laurel, Valerie, Lasina (Rory), Peder, Cheryl (Kyle), 14 grandchildren, and 9 great-grandchildren. Holding a special place in her heart are Robert and Rayanne Charlie. Ellen lived a life of service, first and foremost to her family. During the 1970s she was very active in Edmonton on many boards and committees. Later she worked for the Burns Lake Band. She was adopted into the Caribou clan of the Carrier (Yinka Dene) people. She carried the name of Yaz Dene Ya with honour and dignity in the feast house. Rest in peace.
