     Maggie Harriette Cook (nee Kanipitew) was born on December 20, 1928, in Onion Lake ,SK, the second of eight siblings. She married Edwin Cook in Onion Lake and they were blessed with thirteen children. Maggie was a kind-hearted woman who was always ready when called upon, she enjoyed being around family and there was never a time that she would be alone.  She loved all of her children, grandchildren, and capans unconditionally.  Mom's favourite passtime was playing cards with family and her summers consisted of travelling  to powwows and she also travelled to Lac St. Ann. She also dearly enjoyed stick games which was her way of meeting up with family and making new friends. Mom was well known to so many in the hand game family and during her many travels she adopted so many into her family which proved she had a heart of "'Gold".  Maggie sat on numerous committees in our community which included the Elders Advisory, Native Justice, and Treaty Governance. She took pride in her cultural beliefs and attended all of the ceremonies within the community and surrounding areas (sweats, chicken dances, sundances).   Mom, Kokum, Chapan are all the names she would hear and it always made her smile.
