Obituary for Francesca Felicity Ducharme-Whitehead

Francesca Felicity  Ducharme-Whitehead
Francesca Felicity Ducharme-Whitehead of Opaskwayak Cree
Nation passed away unexpectedly with family by her side Tuesday,
October 30, 2018, at the Health Sciences Centre Winnipeg, MB.
Francesca was born July 19, 2002, to Donna Ducharme and Alvin
Whitehead at St. Anthony's Hospital in The Pas, MB.
Francesca attended school at Opasquia, Joe A. Ross, and Oscar
Lathlin Collegiate. She was a Youth Employment worker at
Opaskwayak Band Office during the summer. Fran also helped her
dad at the family restaurant when specific work was needed. She
also attended summer camps during her early years and also
enjoyed being around pow-wow dancing and gaining the knowledge
of being an Inninew Oskinekiskwe (young Indigenous Woman). She
especially loved to smudge and had her own little bundle in her
room.
Francesa loved being around her friends and family, listening to
music, fishing, camping, swimming, and numerous outdoor
activities. Her brothers were always a joy to be around something
she loved to do was be with them. She really enjoyed shopping and
going on road trips. Her sense of humor always brightened up your
day, with the way she knew how. She learned how to cook, do her
chores and learned at a young age to do her own laundry. She
helped her dad clean up and never complained about it. She
enjoyed the times being out with her dad and mom, either going to
eat or just spending time with them. Fran enjoyed road trips, doing
her nails and makeup. She loved experimenting with different colors
and styles. Christmas was her favorite time of year, she was always
excited about the season. Fran also loved to draw. Fran loved
having Chinese Food. Fran has left a big hole in the hearts of those
who loved her. We will always remember you and love you
deeply Fran.
Francesca was predeceased by her Grandparents Sarah
Ducharme of Cormorant, Jimmy (Joseph) Caribou of
Pukatwagan also John and Jessie Whitehead, also
cousin Ayrton Kadachuk and her infant aunt Harriet Matilda
Whitehead.
Francesca leaves to mourn, her parents Donna
Ducharme and Alvin Whitehead, stepfather Jeff
Brightnose, and dear sister Giselle Ducharme. Francesca
also leaves numerous relatives, aunties, uncles, cousins,
and friends. Relatives from Cormorant, Cumberland,
Pukatawagan, and OCN/The Pas.
Miss me but let me go, for
this is a journey, we all
have to take, and we must
go
alone,
it's all part of the Master's
Plan a step on the
Road to Home.
