Alexandra (Alice) Walker (nee Yandeau)

Alice passed away peacefully at Neepawa, Hospital on January 22, 2009. She was born in Lukova, Russia on September 12, 1927. Alice came to Canada in 1929 with her family and located in Wildwood, Alberta. While working in Nojack at a logging camp as a cook, she met and married Russell Yandeau in 1948.

With Carol as a newborn in 1949 they settled in Plumas where they had purchased a farm. They were blessed with two more children, Carrie in 1953 and Tom in 1965.

With Russell being very ill Alice took on purchasing and running the Plumas Solo Store. She also purchased the Plumas Cafe and ran both for a few years. After Russell’s death in 1975 Alice sold the cafe and store.

In 1978 she married Raymond Walker. Together Alice and Raymond raised Tom. They spent countless hours at baseball games and tournaments. The Plumas Pirates with son, Tom on the squad were always assured of one very loyal spectator. Alice wore her Pirate jacket and hat with pride and took her umbrella along to every game. She never missed a game except when her health kept her from going.

Curling rinks, hockey rinks and Briers were popular venues for Alice and Raymond.

Alice had a special bond with each and every one of her 10 grandchildren. She was always ready and very willing to give them loving advice and guidance in their lives whether they wanted it or not. Alice loved her 11 great-grandchildren more than we will ever understand. When she was able she was always one of the very first to welcome the new addition. Raymond always faithfully drove her to every baptism, every birthday party, hockey game or First Communion, even Ukrainian Dancing that the kids were involved in when health permitted. At their young age they’ve been lucky enough to already form a lasting bond with Grandma Alice and each one will have special memories. We were always aware of the pride she felt for each and every member of her family. As she was a super cook, we will especially miss her perogies, homemade mustard, and mocha cake.

She was Grandma to countless friends of the grandkids that dropped by after a curling game or any other activity going on. With a heart of gold and food always spread out Grandma never let anyone leave without eating.

She was a member of the Legion and Honourary Member of the Plumas Ladies Curling Club.

She was devoted to the Curling Club in Plumas in every respect. She was very vocal in making sure a new kitchen was added on to improve cooking facilities. Her soup was popular at the rink and there was never a chance of running out as there was always a new pot ready for emergencies. Over the years stranded curlers were always welcomed with open arms. It was not uncommon to have the house full of overnight guests.

Alice was predeceased by her first husband Russell; her mother Katherine; her father Rufus; brother Art and sister Justine.

She is survived by her husband Raymond; daughters Carol (Wilfred), Carrie (Don); son Tom (Shannon); 10 grandchildren; and 11 great grandchildren.

Friends called for visitation and prayers on Sunday evening, January 25, 2009 at 7:30 p.m. in Clarke’s Funeral Chapel, Gladstone with Pastor Richard Klein officiating.

Funeral service was held Monday, January 26, 2009 at 1:00 p.m. in the Plumas Community Hall with Pastor Alvin Borchardt officiating. Interment followed in the Plumas Catholic Cemetery.

Hope Tatrianna Dumas

January 23, 2000 – February 3, 2009

“Koshipaasheek” – Winter Rolling Thunderbird

Tragically in the early morning hours of February 3, 2009, our precious daughter perished in an unexpected house fire at our family home in Sandy Bay. Left to cherish her beautiful memory are her parents Michael & Rona Dumas; her grandfather Harry Roulette; her sisters Marlena (Keith), Eva (Kelly John), and Gina; her brothers Michael Jr. (Naomi), Clifford (Cheryl), and Harry; nieces Jade, Michaela, Bonnie, Rheannah, and Samora; nephews Bobby Joe, Tobey, Coby, Dayton, Brent and Cole; her foster brothers Donovan & Edmond Spence; her foster sister Tanya Roulette; niece Rayne; Melanie, Nadine, Christina, Mircale, Lorne, Dwayne, Taylor in Ottawa and Gina; grandmother Yvette McIvor; grandfather Lloyd McIvor; and maternal grandmother Irene Richard; as well as numerous aunts and uncles.

Hope was predeceased by her grandparents Clifford & Olive Eastman; grandmother Audrey Roulette; uncle Harry Roulette Jr.; and nephew Keanu West.

Hope was presently in grade three at Isaac Beaulieu Memorial School. She was an intelligent, vibrant, outspoken student. She enjoyed school immensely, she attended school even when she wasn’t feeling well, and she enjoyed buddy reading with the grade seven class. Teachers and other staff members would constantly remind her to zip up her jacket. She wouldn’t take the time to do it, she was too anxious to get where she was going.

Hope enjoyed her home life, school, and friends. Her big smile always warmed the hearts of people she interacted within the school and around the community. At home, she was a ‘lil’ mother hen to her nieces and nephews. She especially enjoyed talking about her nephew Keanu. Activities she enjoyed were Singstar, Guitar Hero and playing with her Bratz dolls. In school she enjoyed playing Family Feud.

We will miss our Hope, because she gave us the best times in her short life. She was so happy and always had something to say to make us happy. Her name will be remembered forever because she was our only “HOPE” in our lives. Your name will live on forever in our lives.

Wake began Friday, February 6, 2009 at 7:00 p.m. in the Sandy Bay First Nation Community Complex.

Funeral service was held Monday, February 9, 2009 at 2:00 p.m. in the Our Lady of Guadalupe Catholic Church with Father Roy George Vazhaplankudiyil officiating.
