Special auntie and godmother of Leah.

Courtney will be sadly missed by many many cousins and friends. She was a student a Seneca College, President of the Seneca Indigenous council, a student ambassador, a tutor, and a group leader. She always made time for people, especially if they were in need. She acknowledged everyone with her warm hugs, smiles, and a very contagious laugh. Throughout her life she suffered from arthritis, but in her own pain she always found light to carry on and she did. As she would say it "I'm a pro on crutches" - and that how she would show up no matter what. That's who she was always showed up and brought everyone together. She will be sadly missed.

I am so saddened to hear this tragic news about Courtney. Courtney was a student of mine several semesters ago in the Indigenous Studies course and I do remember her leadership skills and her dedication to her work at Seneca College.
Please accept my sincere condolences and she and her family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
