Bernadette Fox, SFO
Naatoyitapiaakii – Holy Spirit Woman
December 17, 1945 –
May 24, 2014
Age: 68 years
In the early evening of Saturday May 24, 2014, surrounded by family, friends, and prayers of the Holy Rosary, our beloved Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt, Friend BERNADETTE – Naatoyitapiaakii, made the very special journey to be with our Lord and Creator, Iihtsipaitatiiyio’p.
Bernadette was a very special lady, a true angel among us. She had the gift and grace of helping others and was an inspiration to many. She was born into the Many Children Clan of the Blood Reserve. Her parents, Stephan and Emma, raised her with the knowledge of both the Catholic and Traditional Native way of life and with this she was able to live a life full of spiritual strength and prayer. She was dedicated to her children and family; they were the pillar that motivated her.
Bernadette attended St. Mary Residential School until the age of 16 then she attended Catholic Central High School where she graduated from Grade 12. She attended NAIT and SAIT and graduated with a Diploma in Dietary Technology. Later in life she attended College in Lac La Biche where she completed training to become a Community Health Representative. She also attended Newman Theological College and received a Certificate in Pastoral Biblical Theology.
Bernadette worked at the Blood Indian Hospital for 18 years where she managed Food Services. In 1993 she began her work with the Blood Tribe Department of Health in the areas of Community Health, Dietary Services and the Breast Health Program. She continued this work until January 2014. Bernadette was also dedicated to her work as Teacher and Elder for the children and staff of Opokaa’sin Child Development Center in Lethbridge. Bernadette also devoted many hours to her volunteer work for the Canadian Cancer Society and to Immaculate Conception Parish Council. This work was very rewarding to her as she knew she was helping others lead more healthy and spiritual lives.
In 1994, Bernadette was professed to the Order of Saint Francis. This was a very special time for her as she knew it would enrich her spiritual life. In 1998, Naatoyitapiaakii became a Ninaimskaakii, Medicine Pipe Bundle Holder. This vow was made by her Aunt Ruth Little Bear in recognition of her battle with breast cancer. For Bernadette this began a journey of great spiritual growth and enlightenment.
Bernadette was predeceased by her husband Gilbert (Q.E) Tailfeathers, her parents Stephen Fox Sr. and Emma Manyfeathers, Step-Father George Manyfeathers, Father and Mother-in-Law, Harvey and Nellie Tailfeathers and Grandparents Charlie Panther Bone and Margaret Low Horn.

John Burns Larson
1919-2014
On Saturday May 24, 2014 heaven welcomed home a true angel as JOHN BURNS LARSON passed away peacefully with his sweetheart by his side. Born June 19, 1919 to Loren and Geneva Larson, Burns was just a few weeks shy of 95 years old at his passing. He will be remembered as a great example of how to live life to the fullest. Burns worked hard and played hard. He had tons of energy and a positive outlook on life. He loved people and he had a talent for making everyone around him feel good. Burns grew up in Raymond, attended the University of Alberta, and served in the Canadian Air Force before marrying Lois Gibb in 1946. They eventually settled in Cardston where Burns dedicated his life to serving and caring for others as a surgeon. He regularly made house calls to check on his patients, doing his best to help them heal physically, lift their spirits, and leave them with a smile. As a lifelong member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Burns proudly stood for his beliefs. He valued healthy living and even went up against a major beverage company to have caffeine removed from a popular soda. He and Lois served an LDS mission in the Philippines, where they traveled throughout the country providing medical care to both missionaries and local residents. Burns was known for his sense of humor and story-telling. He loved to share fun memories mingled with jokes. In recent years, he would often end his stories by saying, “We just really enjoyed life.” Burns was a light that brightened this world. Loved ones can picture him in heaven telling stories and making people laugh. Burns is survived by his sister Verda Gibb Fischer, his eternal companion of nearly 68 years Lois Larson, and their 5 children: John (Sue) Larson, Robert (Dianne) Larson, Joanne (Randy) Ellis, Lori (Drew) Morrison, Barbara (Jason) Bartram, 29 grandchildren, and 40 great-grandchildren. Burns leaves behind a legacy that will not be forgotten. Many generations to come will likely tell his stories and feel inspired by his exemplary life.
