Marie Adele Gon

February 12, 1936 - September 18, 2017

Marie Adele Gon passed away at the age of 81 at Stanton Territorial Hospital on September 18, 2017 after a long illness that caused her to lose her sight and her precious memories. Marie Adele was fortunate enough to have her family members surrounding her as she took her last breath.

Mary Adele met her husband Joseph Gon in 1953 and together they raised 13 children. They made a home in Franks Channel (Deke) before moving to Behchoko in the 1960's, where she helped her mother Liaza Football (deceased 1974) raise her siblings, Therese Drybones, Eddie Football and Celine Football. Marie Adele encouraged her children and grandchildren to follow their dreams and use their full potential. She always advised her children to maintain certain standards of morals and insisted on daily prayers as part of everyday life. She was a strong believer in the Roman Catholic Church, as she would recite her daily prayers, "Our Father, who art in Heaven."

Mom, you have departed this world with grace and courage, and left us wondering how wonderful it must be. Your presence is felt in our hearts, and it gives us comfort to know that you are watching over us with your loving husband. We miss you dearly.
