Ni ka na wa ah (Small Voice)

El­dest of 8 chil­dren born to Frank and Theresa Mon­tour. She loved her life on the fam­ily farm. In 1948 she mar­ried Rus­sell Im­rie. Af­ter start­ing their fam­ily they brought their 4 chil­dren to Cal­i­for­nia join­ing the Im­rie clan that had set­tled in Santa Clara Val­ley. They had one more child born in San Jose. While Char­lotte worked hard at home, Russ worked on golf cour­ses, even­tu­ally as the head groundskeeper of the Cam­brian golf course. When they moved to the Cam­brian area Char­lotte was hired at Good Sa­mar­i­tan Hospi­tal. Af­ter re­tir­ing they re­turned to Canada. Russ passed away in 1996 and Char­lotte re­mained in Kah­nawake.

Char­lotte loved read­ing, road trips, cook­ing, camp­ing, Ta­hoe, base­ball, their rus­tic cabin near Oroville which they shared with friends Pete and Faye Moga, golf, pow wows, mu­sic and most im­por­tantly, her fam­ily.

In pass­ing she joins her par­ents, her hus­band Rus­sell, sis­ters Leatrice, Jea­nine, and He­len, brother Grant and beloved grand­son, Paul.

Her chil­dren Rus­sell, Alexan­der, Nancy, Eileen, Phyl­lis and their spouses; 13 grand­chil­dren and spouses; 9 great grand­chil­dren; sis­ters Is­abelle, Dar­lene, Josie and many fam­ily, friends and dear friend Colleen Porter will jour­ney on without her.

A spe­cial thank you to the Ka­teri Memo­rial Hospi­tal staff for their pro­fes­sional and ten­der care of our Mother.

Ser­vices will be held on Oc­to­ber 13, 2018 at St. Xavier Church in Kah­nawake Que­bec. Her voice was small when she ar­rived in this world, but she was strong of heart, tra­di­tion, love, friend­ship and faith. O:Nen Nikanawaah; Our love fol­lows you.
