Marin Joelle

Goodstriker – First Rider

Singing In the Water –


Feb 28, 1986 – Feb 26, 2018

Family and friends celebrate the life of MARIN JOELLE FIRST RIDER born in Lethbridge Feb 28, 1986 until her journey home on Feb 28, 2018. Marin was taken from us before she had a chance to blossom into her true potential.

She will always be remembered for her unmistakable laugh, humour and her incredibly giving spirit. Marin cherished life, family, her friends and would do anything to help anyone in need.

Marin graduated from Kainai High School in 2005, where she played volleyball and basketball. Marin’s teammates remember how her tall frame gave her a strong advantage and not to mention her ‘killer serve’. She travelled to Winnipeg Manitoba to participate in the North American Indigenous Games in July 2002. One of her fondest memories was having the opportunity to play in a football scrimmage against the teaching staff, a memory she would giggle about years later.

Marin would be blessed with the title ‘Mom’ to two beautiful children, Dakayda and Connor whom she shared with Edmond Jr. a role that she would be most proud to be remembered by.

Marin was also known for her love of the entire feline species, aspiring future paranormal investigator, loud music, concerts and of course her beloved Pittsburgh Penguins! Marin’s unforgettable kindness and gentle spirit gained her immense wealth in friendships and all who knew her, loved her. Marin provided the best security ‘bar none’ for the Kainai Indian Day Celebrations for the past three years. Marin also enjoyed her time with the staff during her employment at the Kainai Food Market in the deli/bakery department. When you think of Marin, please remember her love of life, and her love of those she welcomed along to share her journey. Celebrate and remember her in your memories, and live as she did….to the fullest!

Marin, Mare, Jo, and “Big Bad Marin # 16” you will be profoundly missed. Until we see you again, take your place amongst all the other loving angels and watch over us…. As Marin would say, “I guess that’s what happens, when something happens!”

Marin is survived by her two beautiful children Dakayda and Conner, her beloved mother Kathleen, brothers Austin (Lillian) sister Kassia. Nieces Kianna, Heidi, and Aryanna. Grandmother Celina, Uncles Wilton (Evelyn), Rufus Jr. (Louise) Leon (Yvette) Noel (Simone) Stanley (Joanne) Aunts Rochelle (Corey) Kris (Robert) Great Uncles Philip, Pat, Ray (Veronica) Great Aunts Nora, Debbie Sister-cousins Shannon, Carrie Dawn, Shawna,

Sheena Brother-cousins Chucky, Benji, Skip, Coleman, Godfrey Jr. as well as numerous cousins from the Goodstriker and Brewer family. Special friends Dylan, Natalie and Ingrid. Favorite cat ‘Nugget’ and her favorite dog ‘Remedy’.

Predeceased by her brother Carlyle, Great grandparents Ben and Annie Brewer, Grandfather Rufus, Uncle George Sr. Goodstriker, Uncle Charlie, Aunts Joyce, Christine, Lorraine, Francis, Cousins Shawn, Cassandra and Angel.
