Joyce (Pixie) Pookakii Jones (nee Bull Bear), beloved wife of Ken Jones of Siksika Nation, AB, passed away peacefully with family by her side at the Strathmore Hospital on Wednesday, September 1, 2004 at the age of 57 years.
Pixie was a wonderful wife, mother, daughter, aunt, sister, grandmother, and friend. She was a devout Christian who had a big heart and always thought of others first. She enjoyed devoting her time to raising her children, spending time with grandchildren, then she and Ken opened up their home and became foster parents. Pixie was very family oriented and enjoyed hosting family gatherings. She welcomed everyone with that unforgettable smile. She also enjoyed attending church, listening to gospel music, reading, and sewing. There are no words to express how deeply she has touched many lives. We love her very much and will miss her dearly.

Pixie is also survived by her mother Mary Bull Bear; four brothers, Harrison, Robert (Rosemarie), Davis (Marjorie), and Horace (Celeste); three sisters, Rosalind (Wayne), Wanda (Bruce) and Audrey; and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
