In Memory of Wendy Beauchemin Peterson
Your gift in honour and memory of Wendy Beauchemin Peterson
Wendy’s heart for people was obvious to all who met her. She was a combination of deep compassion, boldness in speech (wrapped in her inimitable humour), accompanied by actions that consistently named discrimination wherever she saw it. She was passionate about justice for all people but especially for Indigenous peoples at home and around the globe. As a Red River Métis woman, she was a role model to all who met her and came to know her, but she was especially concerned for the nurture and development of Indigenous women, of all ages.
The family has asked that in lieu of other gifts, donations be made to Indigenous Pathways, an organization addressing the concerns of Indigneous People, of which Wendy was a founding member and continuing director until her passing. Your donation will help continue Wendy's passion for Indigenous people.
