Harriet passed away peacefully on the 12 of April in Vancouver, BC. She is lovingly remembered by her siblings, nieces and nephews, aunties and uncles, cousins, her Musqueam community and friends. Funeral services will be held at the Musqueam Community Center, 6777 Salish Drive, Vancouver (Musqueam Reserve) Formal welcome will take place on Thursday April 15 at 3pm followed by a Prayer service later that evening. A funeral Mass will be held the following day at 9:00am, followed by cremation with burial of her ashes a few days later.
Keeping the safety of the community in mind and following Covid-19 guidelines, the Prayer and Funeral Service will only allow for Immediate Family and Invited Guests to attend.
In an effort to create an opportunity for the Musqueam Community to partake in the services for our Beloved Harriet there will be a procession after the conclusion of the funeral. The family invites friends and family to join in this final farewell by lining up along the procession route.
If you would like to offer the family a handshake or returns, this can be done during the procession. An usher will follow behind the procession and collect envelopes along the route (Please include on the envelope: name, where money will go to, e.g. headstone or family, etc.).
Due to the COVID safety guidelines, community will have to remain in place and say your farewell from the curbside. We ask that everyone practice social distancing and ensure the safety of the family in mourning. We understand how difficult this is for community, but we must remain diligent.
