Sympathies message

  1. Id just like to pass my most deepest sympathy to all the Wanyandie family for the passing of Irene Wanyandie,of whome i got to be so lucky as to learn from when i first came to Canada,from England … I was commonlaw with Joseph Samuel Wanyandie from 1998 to 2003 and in that time had Children Samuel Ryan,Sabastian Joseph,and in Jan 2004 our daughter Emma Lee.. Irene and Archie were very caring and showed me their upmost respect,and even took Joseph and myself into their home at Suza Creek .. While stsying with them i learnt to mske hides and make drymeat and bannick which was a whole new experience to me… Their home had no running water and the toilet was outside,they had to chop wood to heat the home and i thought it was crazy that they didnt live with everything that most people took for granted… They were perfectly happy to stay living this way… I enjoyed the new lifstyle but it sure was challenging… Irene was always laughing at me and making jokes about my change ..She was very wise lady and loved her children,and grandkids dearly.. She had alcohol addictions and had almost zero English language skills which made communication very minimum between us directly.. Joseph,Emil,and Archie translated when she wanted me to learn the new tasks that came to me as day in an day out… I think of this family each day that goes by,thanku for all ur teachings and ull be dearly missed by all that u touched. .. Love u always Joanne,Samuel,Sabastian,and Emma Lee xoxox
