In Loving Memory of Marielee Nault

July 28, 2015

 
Manitoba Metis Federation President David Chartrand, Cabinet and staff are deeply saddened by the loss of one of our great leaders, past MMF Cabinet Minister and Southeast Board of Director. Marielee Nault passed away on Friday, July 17, 2015.
 
Marielee served six terms as Board of Director for Southeast Region.  She proudly served the Metis Nation and was very honoured to represent the Metis Government of Manitoba as Minister of Health until her retirement from politics in 2014.  During her tenure as Board of Director, Marilee was the outspoken voice in Cabinet for foster children in care.  Her love and compassion for children without homes and family led Marielee to become a loving foster parent for the past 20 years.   
 
The Manitoba Metis Federation offers its sincere condolences and heartfelt sympathies to Marielee’s family – her husband Elmer and their four children Sean, Terri, Tammy and Troy, her grandchildren and all of Marielee’s foster children.  Our thoughts and prayers are with you during this very difficult time.  
 
For her outstanding contributions and love of the Metis Nation, President David Chartrand and Cabinet will be honouring Marielee Nault with the Manitoba Order of the Sash at the 2015 Manitoba Metis Federation Annual General Assembly being held in Winnipeg on September 26 & 27, 2015.  
 
What we have once cherished, respected and loved can never be lost, for all that we love deeply, cherish eternally and respect immensely becomes a part of us – we are family.
