Obituary for Walter Samuel Pelly

Walter Samuel Pelly
In the early hours of Saturday, February 3, 2018, our beloved Walter passed away peacefully with his family by his side at the age of 78 years.
Walter was born Saturday, February 11, 1939 to Edward and Agnes Pelly in Pemican Portage near Cumberland House, Saskatchewan.
He left Cumberland House in the 60’s as he followed his fellow friends to The Pas Indian Reserve, known as Opaskwayak Cree Nation, in search of employment. He also worked on the Extra Gang on the railroad in Thompson, a Miner in Flin Flon and his last job was for the Town of The Pas.
During the working days in the north, he met a woman from Nelson House, Manitoba. He stayed with her for a few years, then later moved to The Pas. Walter did not know he had a son from this relationship. A worker from the hospital came to visit Walter, he was asked if he knew of this woman from his past. Her name was shown to him, Walter looked at the worker with a big smile! The worker said, “Taneki, there is someone looking for you? Awena your son, his name is Paul Linklater.” The expression on Walter’s face lit up the whole room, as he was so happy that his son Paul was looking for him. Paul came to visit Walter at St. Paul’s Care Home often and they shared many stories with each other.
Walter also trapped with the late Dale Michaluk and his wife Cecila Ross and Ernest and Evelyn Jebb.
Walter was the last of his family to go to the Spirit World where he now joins his loved ones in heaven; his parents Edward and Agnes; brothers William, Patrick, Adam; sisters Matilda, Kathleen, Susan.
Walter being the last surviving member of his immediate family, for many years held his cousins close to his heart as his own siblings, William (Shannon) Pelly, Flora Crane (nee Pelly), Louise Ballantyne (nee Pelly).
Walter also leaves behind Kokum Mary Pelly and Christie Crane, as well as many nieces, nephews, grandchildren, chapans, cousins, too numerous to mention. As well as extended family in Cumberland House, Sturgeon Landing and Shoal Lake, Saskatchewan.
