MONTURE: BELVA

It is with profound sadness that the family of Belva Mae Garlow Monture announce her passage to Skyworld on December 22, 2018. Belva was born on September 14, 1939 in Ohsweken and was the beloved wife of Ron Monture for 56 years. Dear mother of Terri and Scott, Ron Jr and Teresa, and Dawn and Shawn, she was the adored grandmother of Raven (Chelsey), Clayton (Kenna), Kristen (Donovan), Carole, Lilly, and Kat, and great-grandmother to Bellva Reign, and a new face coming to our family in January. She was the daughter of the late Russell and Luella Garlow, cherished sister of the late James Garlow, Lorraine Garlow and Marion Macdonald of Ohsweken, and sister-in-law to Helen Moses, Don Monture, and Elvera Garlow. She is also fondly remembered by many nieces, nephews, and cousins in the extended Garlow and Monture families.  Belva began her career as the Medical Records secretary at St Joseph’s Hospital in Brantford and Administrative Assistant to the Administrator of the then-Lady Willingdon Hospital in 1969.  She became the first certified long-term care administrator of Iroquois Lodge in 1979, guided by the principle that we look after our own, and bringing a level of care and concern for our elders at Six Nations that continues to this day. Our family is forever grateful and thankful for the excellent care she received while she was a resident at the Lodge; it is fitting that this is the place that looked after her so lovingly for so long. Belva also served on the first Board of Directors at the Six Nations Crisis Centre, and then Ganohkwasra Family Services, ensuring that families are able to heal in a culturally-relevant setting.

A family visitation will be held at 11am at the Hyde & Mott Chapel of R.H.B. Anderson Funeral Homes Ltd., 60 Main Street South, Hagersville, Ontario on Monday December 24, 2018. Visitation will take place from 12pm to 3pm the same day; a funeral service will be held at 3pm.  In lieu of flowers, donations to the Iroquois Lodge new vehicle fund will be gratefully accepted.  We are thankful for the life and love that Creator let us share with her.  www.rhbanderson.com

Sending sincerest condolences to Belva’s husband, their children and her sisters.
Belva was my maid of honour when her brother and I married. She was a very beautiful kind hearted and
woman who cared and loved her family, friends and was devoted to her community. Belva always respected
and supported traditional people. She was a wonderful sister in law and friend. She will be missed.
