Mary Dom TangasThursday, January 19, 2017
Joyful, Caring and Resilient . We envied her entrepreneurial spirit forged through self determination, hardship, selflessness and her happiness was best found at her home on Clearwater Beach, Florida. Here is where Mom was at her best, her multitude of friends, Jack, Boris and Paula, Susanne, Rodney to name a few and her Friday evening dinners at the Beachcomber, but most of all just sitting or walking on the beach enjoying the sunshine and chatting with people.
Proud mother of Phyllis (John) and Gus. Grandmother to Robert (Sara) and Jennifer. Great grandmother to Maggie, Sloane and James. Stepmother to Linda Dom. Sister-in-law Mary and her extended family. We will miss you dearly, but your spirit and name will always be evident in conversations, by the splashing of the waves against the shore, the sand beneath our feet or the flight of a seagull above.
Cremation has taken place.

Dene town responds with generosity, despair in wake of school shooting - CBC.caFriday, September 09, 2016
La Loche's community centre. (CBC)
La Loche is not a reserve, but 90 per cent of the residents are indigenous.
The town is also close to the Clearwater River Dene Nation, both in distance and relations. Some children from the reserve attend school in La Loche, which is about a five-minute car ride away.
The social problems facing La Loche aren't that unusual in First Nations across Canada's North.
It's maddening to many locals that the unemployment rate in La Loche hovers around 50 per cent, and the median income in 2011 was under $15,000, when there are immense uranium deposits nearby and the oil sands in Fort McMurray are only 100 kilometres to the west.
When I asked Chief Ted Clark of Clearwater River Dene Nation about how his community planned to move forward after the shooting, he offered a practical solution: get funds to build a youth centre.
But he also had a political take on the tragedy, one politicians from Ottawa and Regina likely heard from him, too. He essentially blamed colonial history and land dispossession.
"The South has a lot of things. We don't," Clark said. "But what the South don't have is the resources in our traditional territory. It's there. We want to utilize it as well. And that's what we want. We want our fair share."
Let's block ads! (Why?)...
Nanaimo remembers educator, activist and elder 'Auntie Ellen' - Nanaimo News BulletinWednesday, March 27, 2019
Ellen White, Kwulasulwut, died Tuesday at age 95, and her funeral was held Saturday morning at the Beban Park Social Centre.
White was a member of the Order of Canada and the Order of British Columbia and her obituary remembers her as an "educator, cultural knowledge keeper, author, linguist, herbalist, healer, traditional midwife, and political activist and advocate."
She was one of the founders of the Tillicum Haus Aboriginal Friendship Centre and was an elder-in-residence in Vancouver Island University's First Nations studies program.
"She possessed a pure, kind and radiant heart," said Les Malbon, who described himself as one of White's adopted grandchildren as he delivered her eulogy Saturday.
White's name, Kwulasulwut, translates to ‘many stars' and Malbon alluded to that as he addressed the people gathered in the social centre.
"I look out now and I see the many stars," he said. "I see how she impacted the community. I see how much she loved her family and I appreciated, personally, how much that love changed me and how it's changed all of us to be better people and behoove us to be kind to one another and to work towards a world of unity."
Malbon said the White home was always filled with visitors, and Ellen White also travelled to meet people and sh...
