Bloomfield (VanEvery), Mary Corrine
August 13, 1928 - May 27, 2017

After a long, interesting and productive life, Mary ‘Kawennoktha’, ‘Penny’, ‘Pen’, ‘Mr Pen’ left us in her 89th year.  Pen was a survivor of the Mush-hole that gave her a very poor formal education and trained her how to be a cleaning lady which she did for a short time. But her low quality of education and training at hands of the Mush-hole never stopped her! In her late twenties she went back to school to learn about Business Administration.  She worked a number of years in Toronto, and in 1965 went on to work for the Six Nations Elected Council where she remained for 27 years.  She once said that she really enjoyed her work at Council because she got to know so many of the Six Nations people and the employees of the many of the companies that did business with Council.  She even liked most of the people at INAC!  Pen will be missed by her Wednesday morning breakfast friends, the Wednesday Ohsweken Euchre gang and her Thursday Dummy Rummy friends.  Pen will be very sorrowfully missed by daughter Claudine ‘Dicki’ VanEvery-Albert and her  husband Gaetan ‘Gator’ Albert.  Pen also leaves her much loved grandchildren and great grandchildren: granddaughter Caroline ‘Karenniyo’, her husband Seth ‘Kanenhariyo’ Lefort, their children Bineshiinh ‘Katsitsyanonwes’, Gezhii ‘Karonhyoroks’, Nimkii ‘Konwatsyenhiyohstha’, Wasnode ‘Anonnyatha’ and little Kaya’tyenens called ‘Jin’; granddaughter Jesee and her children Ava, Tresham and Kellar; grandson Phil and his daughter Carida. Pen will also be sadly missed by her sister Carolyn “Cao” Beaver and her son John, and nieces Pauline VanEvery and her family, and Alaina VanEvery and her girls.  Pen also leaves her sister Jan Longboat, her sisters-in-law Marg Bloomfield and Helen Bloomfield, brothers-in-law Jerry Longboat and Roland Allison, and sister-in-law Kitty VanEvery. Aunt Pen will also be missed by her many nieces, nephews and cousins at Six Nations, Turtle Island and other parts of the world.   She was predeceased by her husband Don Bloomfield, her parents Titus and Vera VanEvery, her siblings Hazel Hill and husband Dan, Doris Miller and husband Jim, Delores Littlewood and husband Dag, Jeanette Allison, and Sharon ‘Shin’ VanEvery, brother Alton and his wife Barbara, and brother Basil.  Honorary Pall Bearers are her friends and long-time neighbours Marion ‘Snooker’ Martin, Joan Greenbird, Judy Smith-Martin, Marlene Martin, Shirley Squire, Buggs Lavell & her Lodge Friend Lorraine Garlow.  Resting at Styres Funeral Home, 1798 4th Line Rd., Ohsweken after 4pm Monday.   Evening Service 7pm. Monday.   Funeral Service will be held in the Styres chapel on Tuesday, May 30, 2017 at 1 pm.  Interment Stumphall Cemetery.

Our deepest condolences to Pen's family and many friends. Pen was always soft-spoken, gentle and kind. Over the years whenever we saw her, she was consistently just the same, a wonderful human being. She will be sadly missed by so many. May your journey to the sky world be filled with love and all the great memories of a well-lived life.

I love you Aunt Pen.
Sorry I couldn't make the service.
Andrea sends her condolences also. She's not very good with using the computer but we did talk the other day and you are in her prayers.
I'm happy I got to see you one last time in December before you were called home.
Thank you and Uncle Don for all the wonderful memories.

Dicki and family- sincere condolences on the loss of your mom and grandma. Six Nations has lost another of our finest. Just last Friday we were speaking of Penny in Norma's kitchen, and she had prepared a greeting card for her friend Penny. Treasure those family memories you are so fortunate to have.
