December 16, 1948 – January 29, 2012
Victoria Mark was called home by our Creator on Sunday, January 29, 2012 at the age of 63 years.
Victoria attended school in Morley up to grade nine and then later attended Bowness Composite High School. She was a tee pee holder at the Calgary Stampede (Mark Family). She enjoyed beadwork, hockey, football, pow-wows, rodeo and participating in track and field. She was employed as a custodian for seven years then worked at the Chiniki grocery store. She received her NADAP Certificate and most recently worked as an Elder Advisor. She was a humble, kind and generous person, thanks to her grandfather Paul Mark for his virtuous teachings and continuing the traditional values and beliefs. She was the oldest grandchild of the Mark clan and lived up to her expectations as the oldest of the clan.
Victoria is survived by her special companion and friend Rolland Rollinmud; her daughters, Stephanie, Bernadette and Chastity Simeon; her sons, Colin (Trisha) Simeon and Darius Chiniquay, Boyce (Tisha) Mark, Nikki (Chrissie) Chiniquay.
