In Loving memory of
Courtney Joan Wemigwans
Pitchiins "Robin"

Words cannot express our sadness, you are our sunshine, our light, our everything - our baby.
You were smart, brave, happy.  You left us too soon
on Sunday December 22, 2019, at 26 years old.

Beloved daughter of Evelyn and Wilfred Wemigwans.
Dear sister of April (Giovanni) and
Clint (Lorianne - predeceased).
Dear auntie of little miss Vitalia, Brittany and Tyrell.
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.
