JENNEAN JOY, beloved spouse of Dallas Houghton-Provost of Calgary, formally of the Blood Reserve, passed away peacefully at the Cardston Hospital on Sunday, April 14th, 2013 at the age of 43 years.
Jennean walked into the arms of our precious Saviour Jesus on Sunday with faith & dignity. Jesus opened up his arms and silently took her away.

Jennean had a passion for dancing at pow wows. One of her accomplishments was to participate by riding in native regalia in the Calgary Stampede Parade and her grandfather Floyd made it possible by letting her ride his pride and joy “Buck”. She was her own seamstress in making her native regalia for herself, nieces and friends. She was an avid athlete in basketball, volleyball and other sports.
Jennean held the Youthman Princess title with great respect, also holding the Native Brother Hood Princess. She was a very compassionate person, she made friends where ever she went. She put off her University to take care of her loving son “Dolin”.
