Gavina Marie King

February 27, 1958 – September 28, 2021

Gavina passed away suddenly on September 28th on the Blood Reserve. She is survived by her sisters, brothers, nieces, nephews, aunts, relatives and her many friends.

Gavina attended St. Mary’s Residential School and graduated from St. Mary’s High School. Gavina loved to work and held occupations in a wide range of areas that included Corrections and until her passing, was a heavy-duty electrician. She also joined the United States Army Reserve, and trained at Fort Jackson, South Carolina, in the early 1990s; a connection to her Grandfather Nicholas King who served in World War I.

Gavina was a talented and competitive athlete and was especially proud of her time she played with the fastball team, the BTA Jays alongside her sister Carla. She was the back catcher and won various tournaments on the Blood Reserve and other Treaty 7 reserves; and as well as women’s leagues in Cardston and surrounding communities. She also played on curling teams with her sister Rhonda in bonspiels in southern Alberta. Later on, she enjoyed 8-Ball pool in the VNEA leagues in Calgary and Lethbridge. In 2010, her team won one of the Ladies Divisions in Calgary which earned them a trip to the Las Vegas International VNEA Tournament. She was also a huge sports fan, cheering on her favourite teams, the Calgary Flames and Calgary Stampeders, and was a former season ticketholder.

She also enjoyed powwows and attended many with her parents when her father, Raymond, sang with the Blood Reserve Singers. After her parents’ passing, she continued to attend powwows to support her family and friends by accompanying her Aunties, Tsuaki and Annie Davis. Her mother, Isabella, taught her how to bead at a young age and was known for her beautiful intricate work. She worked on a lot of outfits for her friends and relatives on the powwow circuit which you see today.

Gavina loved to travel and would be ready whenever her friends and family called her for a quick trip and found herself in places such as Cuba and Hawaii. Hawaii held a special place in her heart because her parents, Raymond and Isabella, travelled there and she eventually resided there for a couple of years with her sister, Thelma.

Gavina was known for her great sense of humour and her quick-witted comebacks and always found ways to make you join in her infectious laughter. Her sense of humour was due to her nature as a good observer who later told entertaining and animated stories with her own twists and funny takes. Her quiet nature held up until she would crack a joke or share a funny observation.

She led a humble life but was wealthy in her friendships and her connections she held with her relatives which was evident by her generosity. She had friends from so many different backgrounds and ages which showed how much of a people person she really was. Although she did not have children, she doted on her nieces and nephews, as well as her relatives and friends’ children. Gavina was strong-willed but was always there for us in our time of need and would help us in any way she could. She will be fondly remembered by all who knew and loved her.

Gavina will be greatly missed by her sisters: Thelma King-Murphy of Honolulu, Hawaii, Rhonda King-Blood (Charles Sr.), Carla Weasel Fat (Fred); and brothers: Klane King (Angela) and Carlton King of Toronto, Ontario; great-aunts: Mrs. Rachel Hoof, Mrs. Annie Davis; nieces and nephews: Pam (Danny), Cameron, Charmaine (Brandon), Kara, R.J., Sarah (Jermiha) and Charles Jr. (Tricia), Cherilynn (Austen), Izaiha, Brolin, Charlee, Urijah, Elijah, Alias, Jermiha Jr., Owen, Loralynn, and Aubrielle.

She was predeceased by her parents: Raymond and Isabella King; her brothers: Courtney, Raynard and Charlie; nephew, Neal; brother-in-law, Laurence; and sister-in-law, Marilyn.

She will also be missed by her extended families which include the Eagle Childs, Crow Chiefs, Eagle Plumes, Red Crows, Eagle Bears and Little Lights. Also, families from the Many Children and All Tall People Clans. The family apologizes for anybody missed.

The Wake service will be from 5:00 – 8:00 pm on Monday October 4, 2021 at Legacy Funeral Home. A Funeral Mass on Tuesday, October 5, 2021 at 11:00 am at St. Mary’s Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church, Blood Reserve (due to covid restrictions 50 people only). Interment to take place in St. Catherine’s Cemetery, Blood Reserve.

OTT

With great sadness, the family announces the passing of our Mom, Grandma and Great-Grandma, MARY OTT, in the early hours of Monday, October 4, 2021, at the age of 79 years.

Mary leaves behind to mourn her passing, her loving husband Kurt of 33 years, her children: Doriann (Darin), Cindy (Byron) and daughter-in-law Cindy; grandchildren: Ashley (Matt), Richelle (Graham), Paige (Brady), Mackenzie (Max), Matt (Teshia), Mike (Courtney), Amanda, Ryan, Justin, Andrew and Victoria (Tyler) as well as nine great-grandchildren: Emersyn, Luke, Miles, Zoe, Connor, Caleigh, Brodie, Ashton and Blake; five sisters: Ann, Shirley, Linda, Mike and Vicky; one brother, John.

Mary was predeceased by her son Jim Brau, parents Martha and Victor, four brothers: Joe, Jerry, Frank and William; one sister, Rose.

Mary Martha Catherine Krampl was born in Sarnia, ON, on February 4, 1942. She grew up the second eldest of 12 children, five brothers and six sisters. Around 1944-1945, Mary’s family moved to Onoway, AB, and after several moves over the years, eventually settled in the Diamond City / Shaughnessy area.

Mom had a zest for life matched by no other. She was always happiest when she was busy helping others or planning a party for family and friends. Mom and Kurt planned many backyard get-togethers and Oktoberfest was one of their favourites. She would plan and prepare enough food for a small army, ensuring everything was perfect and everyone was happy! Mary loved to socialize and would keep us all entertained with her knack for telling jokes. Mom had an artistic talent that shone through in all of her hobbies, such as baking, sewing, painting pictures, rock painting, flower arranging and gardening. Mom and Kurt loved attending dances at the German Canadian Club with their friends. She very much enjoyed music and dancing. Mom could and would accomplish anything she set her mind to, partly due to her stubbornness lol!

Sadly, over the years, Mom’s Parkinsons took its toll on her body, eventually leaving her wheelchair bound, and some days messed with her speech. Even through those toughest days, she would smile and manage to tell you one of her many jokes. She loved people and had a heart of gold. She would always smile and had the ability to light up any room and make those around her smile. Mom was a beautiful soul who won the hearts of all who knew her.

The family would like to thank the many home care professionals at Park Meadows Good Sams who took such amazing and compassionate care of our mom over the last four years. Lovingly naming her “Mare-Bear” and allowing her to be her outgoing self and entertaining you with her jokes.

“In love we united, in love we lived, and in love, we will be united again in heaven.” – Your loving babe, Kurt

A Funeral Service will be held on Friday, October 8, 2021 at 11:00 A.M. with Pastor Lee Loveridge officiating. The service will be live streamed and may be accessed via Mary’s obituary on the Cornerstone website.

Mary will be laid to rest in Royal View Cemetery.
