In Celebration of Life for
Viola Mary Kitchikake
“Nokomis”
November 13, 1948-May 2, 2018

After 69 years our mother, Viola Mary Kitchikake passed on to glory land May 2, 2018 surrounded by close family and friends. She will be greatly missed by her children Ruby Thompson (Darryl), Christopher Thompson, Cherie Roy (Ron) from Sheguiandah, Kim Kitchikake (Tyson) from Wikwemikong. Close friend and father to her children Francis Thompson of Sheguiandah.As she begins her journey, Viola will be greeted by her mother Nancy Peltier of Wikwemikong, her brothers Clemen, Tony, John, Jimmy. Sisters Doris and Alice whom she missed so dearly. Daughter Lorelei Gabow and her angel grandbabies.
Our beautiful, kind momma, was an avid hockey fan whether playing herself or watching her grandchildren play. A strong believer in Anishinaabemowin that led her to becoming a Native Language teacher across Turtle Island. Her favourite past times were therapeutic coloring, crosswords, native crafts/beading, bingo, casino trips, and elder’s activities. Her gentle spirit can be seen in her beautiful, humble smile.
Nokomis’ memory and strength will live on through all her grandchildren and great grandchildren who she loved so much, they were her pride and joy! Her greatest pleasure was being with family and having family gatherings.
