WHITE- Alexis Claire Snow

WHITE – Alexis Claire Snow
(Kaamotaki – Rescue Woman)
August 29, 1994 – September 30, 2010

It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved and beautiful baby girl Alexis Claire Snow White into the Kingdom of Heaven on Thursday, September 30, 2010.

Alexis was born on August 29, 1994 in Strathmore, AB and lived in Calgary most of her life. She had many interests and hobbies which included: golf, basketball, soccer, and working out with her brother. She also loved to participate as a fancy and jingle dress dancer and was so proud in making her regalia in time for our Siksika powwow. She also had a passion for art as she loved to draw, sew, barbequing her famous steaks, and making fry-bread for her family.

Alexis had many relatives and friends from the Treaty 7 and other First Nation communities. As a child, she was very independent, nurturing and protective of her family and friends and known for her kindness, generosity, sense of humour, and strong will. Alexis was a child of God and accepted the Lord as her personal saviour through her Nama. She was actively involved in her traditional ways through her late grandparents.

She leaves behind her parents Tyler and Krista White and her brother Drew; her Nama Freda White; uncles, Ian White, James Many Bears (Crystal), Morris Many Bears (Charlene); aunts, Georgette Medicine Shield (Eldrid), Francine Medicine Shield (Jack), Alanna Many Bears; great-grandmother Mary White; numerous great-aunts, great-uncles, cousins, friends, and extended family members. Alexis was predeceased by her great great-grandparents Dominic and Clara Yellow Old Woman; great-grandfather Andrew White; great-grandparents, Fred Weasel Fat, Harold and Verden Chief Moon, Jim and Alice Many Bears, Frank and Mary Medicine Shield; grandfather Melvin White; grandparents Aloysius and Frances Many Bears; aunt Andrea White-Weasel Fat; her special cousin Brandon Medicine Shield, and additional extended family members. The family apologizes if we have missed anyone!

Luke 18:16
“But Jesus called them unto him and said, suffer little children to come unto me, and forbid them not, for of such is the Kingdom of God”

    Tyler, Krista, Drew and family

    I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your beautiful daughter Alexis. These days must be full of so many questions and heavy feelings that somehow seem as they may never go away…although with the love of God they will change over time. It must also be so difficult to believe that your lives will ever be happy again without Alexis who brought so much happiness to your family. I pray that your lives will be blessed with all the memories that you have about the 16 wonderful years you had with Alexis and that these memories will fill your hearts with some comfort… lessening the burden of grief over time.

    In honour of Alexis and in recognition of all your unselfish and incredible work in your community, I extend to you my heartfelt caring.

    With Love and Prayers, my family extend our deepest condolences for the loss of such a lovely bubbly daughter-Alexis Snow White. I appreciated the (didn’t know would be last) big hug when I saw Alexis in Kalispell in August. Alexis was always full of energy and had a very beautiful smile.
    We give our support and may our heavenly father take care of your family and your beautiful angel, Alexis.
