Remembering Ronni  Shade ‘Totaipisstsaakii’

May 30, 1951 – May 20, 2024

Blood Tribe Chief and Council, along with Administration, are saddened to announce the passing of a beloved member of our staff – Veronica (Ronni) Shade ‘Totaipisstsaakii’. We extend our deepest condolences and prayers to her family, friends and her Finance staff.

Ronni was a strong and humble leader at the Administration as the Senior Financial Officer since 2006 and was a long-term employee with the Finance Department for 52 years. 

She was very knowledgeable in her field but also was very approachable with her staff and her colleagues. She always offered a helping hand to make sure that employees felt supported, along with her witty sense of humour which often offered ease in meetings.

Ultimately, her overall kindness will be dearly missed at the Administration and with the main lesson she taught all employees, in addition to her financial expertise, was to treat every person with compassion.

We extend our condolences to her husband, Barry, and children: Shawn, Todd, JJ, Willie and Kevin; her grandchildren, great-grandchildren and brother, Doug. Along with her numerous extended family and friends. 

Ronni joins her son, Tyson; daughter, Chelsie; and grandson, Darby on her journey home. 

Blood Tribe Administration Offices will be closed on Thursday, May 30, 2024 as a mark of respect on the passing of our friend and colleague Veronica “Ronni” Shade.
