Celina Edith Chief was born on January 9, 1967, in Paradise Hill, SK to Rachel Chief and Gilbert Lewis. She was a very loving person who always had a smile and open arms. There was never a dull moment when she was in your presence. Regardless if you saw her the day before or years later, her door was always open to family, friends or people who needed shelter. Celina left Onion Lake in the late 80’s and moved to Saskatoon where she started her family. She was blessed with 2 daughters, Cassandra (Brian) Chief, and Sierra Chief, and 2 grand children, Emiah Chief and Mikale Chief-Starblanket, whom she adored and loved with all of her heart. In 2019, she moved back to Onion Lake and stayed with our aunt Freda who took care of her until she succumbed to her illness. Her many hobbies included crosswords, sudoku, puzzles, reading novels and going for walks. She had the biggest heart and accepted people for who they were.
