Pookanskaikaikii

It is with extreme sadness and grief that we announce the passing of our precious mother, Elizabeth Day Chief, beloved wife of 44 years to the late Leo Day Chief. Surrounded by family, Elizabeth passed away at the Lethbridge Regional Hospital on Thursday, August 5, 2021 at the age of 68 years. Elizabeth was born on February 10, 1953 at the Blood Indian Hospital. A loving wife to Leo, who worked diligently alongside her husband to build a home and ranch for her family. Elizabeth was beautiful, understanding, and forgiving in her way-of-being, a gentle mother and grandmother who was extremely close to her children and provided guidance when needed. Always busy helping where she can, and very hospitable to family and visitors who came to their home. Greeting with a smile and feeding her visitors. As a respected elder who assisted with repatriation projects for the Blood Tribe, Elizabeth was kind and generous; she believed in helping all people which was her strength. In support of her grandchildren, Elizabeth would volunteer at cultural camps, support cancer campaign projects, and attend rodeos and horse races. Elizabeths’ belief was to approach life in a gentle way-of-being – Iikiinapi.

Elizabeth attended the St Mary’s Residential School, later in life continued on to upgrade in life management skills. She became a dedicated student determined to complete her education and led her to the University of Lethbridge where she graduated in 1991 from the Social Work Program with a Bachelor of Arts Degree. A Pillar in the Community, Elizabeth worked 30 plus years as a Supervisor for the Blood Tribe Social Development in the Income Assistance Program. Elizabeth was dedicated to her job and strived to utilize her formal education and her extensive traditional, spiritual, and cultural knowledge in her work. Elizabeth will be sadly missed by her co-workers, family, friends, and community for her spirit, support, and guidance.
