Sarah Christine Reece was born to Cora Robinson on March 3, 1929 in Hartley Bay.

She was predeceased by her husband Robert Reece and her daughters Hilda Varga and Barbara Barton.

Sarah is survived by her brother James Robinson, her sister Ellen Mason, and her children Myrna Nyakas, Eva Robinson, Rufus Reece, Donald Reece, Irving Reece, Eileen Reece, Kevin Reece, Stephanie Fisher, Glenn Reece, Joe Reece and Vern Reece. She had many grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren, whom she loved and took great pride in.

She was a member of the Hartley Bay choir, took great joy in singing, and was well known for her solos.

Mom was a very generous and loving person. She took pride in teaching our traditions. She often reminded us of our Adaawx which is our story; the House of Gitnuganaaks.

It is with great sadness that we have lost our Matriarch, our teacher, our mother. We were blessed to have had a mother who gave us the gift of love and generosity. She will be sadly missed but her legacy will live on in her children and family.

 

-The memorial for Sarah Reece will be on July 6th at 7 pm at the First United Church in Prince Rupert.
