Ilona Stanley The family of Ilona Stanley is sad to announce her death on Friday, June 8th, 2007 at age 60 in New Westminster, British Columbia after a devastating illness. She leaves to cherish her memory, her son Brian Stanley; daughter Lori Smith; brothers Carl (Natalie), Ron (Barbara) and Robert (Sharon); nephews Rick, Carl, and Damien; nieces Alexandra, Natalie, Donna, Lorraine and Yvonne. She was predeceased by her mother Alice and her father Michael. Ilona (or Noni as she was affectionately called by her family) resided on the Waywayseecappo reserve for the last 13 years up until her illness. She was born on February 9, 1947 at Pine Creek Reserve and raised for the first nine years at Skownan, Manitoba, later moving to Winnipeg and then to Vancouver. She studied art at the University of Manitoba and moved on to a number of varied occupations including welder, dental hygienist, counsellor and professional artist. Ilona loved the Arts and was dedicated to passing on her knowledge of the aboriginal art of birch bark biting. Her work was in great demand and has been sold to customers all over the world. Ilona filled the lives of all who knew her with intelligence, wit, humour and creativity. She was a loving mother, sister and aunt. She will be greatly missed. Ilona’s family would like to thank the staff at Queens Park Hospice in New Westminster, British Columbia, Russell Hospital and Cancer Care Manitoba for their dedicated and compassionate care. Ilona’s family gratefully decline flowers, however, a donation in her name to Cancer Care Manitoba would be much appreciated. Friends of the family are invited to a celebration of Ilona’s life at the Waywayseecappo Band Hall at 2:00 p.m., Saturday, June 23rd. Family and friends are invited to sign the Book of Condolence at As published in the WINNIPEG SUN
