Christine (Tahcheen) Mandamin, 66, passed away peacefully at Lake of The Woods District Hospital on December 6, 2019 while surrounded by her family and friends.
Tahcheen was born on November 1, 1953 in Whitedog, Ontario, and was preceded in death by her life partner of 32 years, Lloyd Letander. She is also predeceased by her sons Shaun, Jason (Karen) and Chris, grandchildren Triplets Mandamin, sisters Doris, and parents Joe and Matilda Mandamin.
Christine was a dedicated mother and grandmother who treasured and embraced every moment she was given with her family. She was a loving and devoted mother of Jennifer (Kenny), Eric (Peggy), Clara (Chris), and Traci (Hughwey), and her unofficial adopted son, Dave Kitt (Crystal). She will be sadly missed by her grandchildren Darren, Marco, Tanis, Janice, Clovis, Margaret, Riley, Shanna, Shannon, Aaliyah, Cole, Emma, Hannah, Erik, Erykah, Theron, Dabney, Justine, Tessa, Rowan, Clara, Peirce, Faith, Lanny, Leanna, Kayla, Michael, Billy, John, and little dear Ryder, and her great-grandchildren Zonta, Emma and Alijah, all of whom were near and dear to her heart. She will also be lovingly remembered by her sisters Josephine Wesley, Kathy Prouty, Gladys Mandamin (Philip), brothers Joe Mandamin and Ronnie Mandamin and many nephews, nieces, extended family members and good friends.
Christine was raised and went to school in Whitedog. She left for a period but eventually returned with her late partner and their children. Christine worked as a Home Support Worker for elders for the past 30 years and attended various training activities for her job. Tacheen worked in this position alongside her long-time friend Florence Carpenter.
Tacheen had a smile that would light up a room. She had a cheerful personality and always made people around her laugh. Christine loved to play gin and cribbage, and enjoyed traveling with family to the casinos. She enjoyed many of the fishing tournaments in the community with her niece, Audrey. She valued being with family, and always enjoyed her outings, socializing and gatherings. She lived a full life as a wonderful and strong mother and wife. She made friends everywhere she went. All who loved her dearly will never forget her wit, charm, kindness, love and her caring for those around her.
From all of those she loved and touched deeply, she will be dearly missed, always on our minds and forever in our hearts.
The family would like to thank the LOTWDH staff in the emergency room, the 3rd floor, the ICU, and the hostel, as well as Wabaseemoong Chief and Council. We would also like to extend our sincere gratitude and utmost admiration to Leah Land, Rose Kelly, Jessie McDonald, Tara Land, and as well as many other family and friends who came to be with the family. Your kindness and strength through this difficult time will always be remembered and cherished.
An Angel By an Unknown Author An angel lived among us, A gift from God above. She showered us with kindness And shared with us her love. She cherished every moment With the man who was her life; Walking hand in hand together, Facing life with all its strife. She loved her children dearly, Each one a different way, Nestled close within her heart. Though, now, she’s far away. She’s gone to live with Jesus. But, she’s here with us, today, Smiling down on every one of us, And telling us she’s O.K.
