DAKOTA LEE MCKELVEY March 6, 2002 - January 22, 2018 It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden, and unexpected passing of Dakota, on January 22, 2018.

At the age of 8 or 9, she had gone into C.F.S care because her grandmother could no longer care for her. Dakota was a very quiet girl, she was more of an observer and a listener. She loved horses, skating, listening to music, playing her guitar, singing karaoke, and visiting family when she could. Dakota loved being around her family. Her favourite artists were Justin Bieber and Selena Gomez, her favourite song was "Wolves" by Selena. Dakota is going to be greatly missed by all that knew her. Left to cherish her memories are mother Bobbie-Sue; sisters, Kayla, Leanne, Hailey, Ava; brothers, Paul, Kegan, Marshall, Aden and Kaylum. Grandparents, Roger and Debbie.

Condolences & Memories (6 entries)

  • My daughter Dakota, I love you and miss you so much. Not a day goes by that I dont think of you. Dakota is buried in Cowan, Manitoba, it's a 6 hour drive where I'm from. - Posted by: Bobbysue Mckelvey (Mother ) on: Nov 11, 2019

  • You were a kind, talented, and a high spirited young lady with a knack for nature, singing and drawing. Loved spending time with you, teaching you how to collect the perfect clear quartz on sunny summer afternoons, to those evenings when our foster parents would forget to collect our 3DS’s and we’d have a few good races of Mario Kart in secrecy. Let’s collect rocks again one day dear Dakota, you are missed. Love Roberta - Posted by: Roberta Newey (Former Foster Sister) on: Apr 16, 2019

  • I was hoping to visit her grave, because I miss her so much. We were foster sisters for awhile, but when I moved out, 3 months later I got the bad news. I wanted to tell you how sorry I am. I was hoping to know where she was buried, and if I can have your permission to visit her. I miss her so much and I wish I could say goodbye to her. - Posted by: Teaghan Marie (Old foster sister) on: Oct 26, 2018

  • Dakota was one of my best friends from HC Avery, we talked a lot and we helped each other through so much. I still remember how she always ran up to me saying “ hey bestie”. I’m always going to miss her being around to make me laugh even when I’m sad. She will be greatly missed and thought of everyday. I will always miss having my friend around to talk to. - Posted by: Kayla (Friend ) on: Jun 23, 2018

  • I wish to send my deepest condolences to Dakota's family. I knew Dakota for only a short period of time. She was a very sweet, gentle and kind soul. I will miss her very much and pray for her to have an easy transition to the spirit world. CARRY ON THEY'LL BE PEACE WHERE YOU ARE HEADED. XOXO - Posted by: Guylaine (Former support worker) on: Feb 02, 2018

  • I am heartbroken to hear that Dakota has died. She was a lovely, quiet and eager to please young girl. Dakota was kind and respectful to her teachers and classmates. What a terrible loss.
