Virginia Morningstar Paypompee, born September 6th, 1991, member of Iskatewizaagegan #39 First Nation Community recently passed away, May 13 2023 suddenly, due to health issues. Joining her late father, Marvin James Redsky and many other relatives in the spirit world. Leaving behind a tremendous amount of loved ones who cared for her deeply.

She is survived by her mother, Carol Paypompee, her three children; Andrew, Andrea and Zady Paypompee, aunties, uncles, cousins, and extended family. Paypompee comes from spiritual roots, connected to the Niimaa (Sturgeon) doodem (clan).

Virginia Morningstar was a relative who carried herself gently on this earth, causing no harm and spoke with a soft tone and always had a welcoming smile. She lived each day with respect, kindness, generosity, a gentle ode’ (heart) and thoughtfulness for those that surrounded her. She loved sincerely, she shared her memories through laughter, jokes, and storytelling. She was here and she was loved, she lived a journey that was not easy but most certainly made the best of the time she did have. Sharing space with her brought a sense of belonging, heartfelt love, and to some she was home. She will now live through us, in our memories. We will find her laughter, her smile in others that pass through our journeys.

As you look into the night sky, think of our dear Morningstar and know that her spirit watches over us. Think of the love she brought us all and know, she is okay.

She is greatly missed.

To remember and honour Virginia Morningstar Paypompee she will be laid to rest by her late father. The wake service will be held Saturday, June 3, 4:00pm. The traditional funeral services will be led by Elder Clarence  Chartrand on Sunday, June 4 at 11:00am in Shoal Lake #39 at David Kejick School with burial to follow.
