Obituary for Selina Hoggarth

Selina  Hoggarth
Selina (George) Hoggarth
1926 - 2017

Asinikanihtawikit “One Born of Stone” or “(Rock) Sitting Firm”, named at birth by her paternal great-grandfather Kaytakinakos, passed away at her home in the early hours of Wednesday, November 1, 2017.

Selina was born October 22, 1926, to Alexander and Clara George on Kahkewistahaw First Nation at the home of her maternal grandfather, Andrew Alexson. Selina was a member of Ochapowace First Nation and was the great-great-granddaughter of Saulteau Woman and Chief Kakisiwew, signatory to the signing of Treaty Four. She attended Round Lake Residential School.

Selina married Myles Findley Hoggarth on January 3, 1959. Their children included Lois, Eldon, Myles Jr., Leola and Dalton. Myles and Selina farmed in the Prosperity district between Rocanville and Wapella from 1959 until they moved to Whitewood in 2006.

Selina was a fun-loving and witty woman but very private, unpretentious and reserved (no pun intended). She lived for her family, and her favourite times were family get-togethers. She loved to dance and play cards. Selina’s farm neighbours and friends held a special place in her heart. She enjoyed being a homemaker and was renowned for her baking, particularly her apple pie.

In her later years, Selina kept busy doing seek-a-words, which she called her “homework”, and was more than willing to travel anywhere at the drop of a hat. Just one day prior to leaving for the spirit world, she read aloud one-on-one to pre-kindergarten and kindergarten school children at Ochapowace, an activity she participated in over the last two or three years and which she enjoyed so much.

As a girl, Selina was a member of the CGIT and also sang in a choir. She possessed a beautiful singing voice and could switch effortlessly mid-song from soprano to alto. She also loved listening to country music (rather loudly). Selina had a keen interest in all people she knew, and with her inquiring mind, kept abreast of all their comings and goings (sources not revealed). Her capacity to remember was astounding, and she somehow catalogued into her vast memory banks sundry facts and particulars and could recite the names of family and friends and their children’s names in order of their birth.

Selina was a loving, protective mother and supported her children and grandchildren in all their endeavours. She was the centre of their lives and will be missed by all.

Selina was predeceased by her husband Myles F. Hoggarth (2009); sons Myles George and Dalton Bruce; parents Alexander and Clara (Alexson) George; brothers Ernest, Ronald and William George; brothers Alfred and Matthew and sister Irene in infancy; sisters-in-law Gladys, Edith and Mable George; father-in-law and mother-in-law William and Johnina (Johnson) Hoggarth; brothers-in-law Oliver Hoggarth, James Topinka and Thomas Edwards; sisters-in-law Evangeline (Vangie) Hoggarth, Tunie Topinka, Olive (Jean) Edwards and Blanche Hoggarth. She is survived by her children Lois (Wayne) Matthews, Eldon (Marla) Hoggarth and Leola (Ken Woodhouse) Hoggarth; grandchildren Whitney Hoggarth and Zachary Hoggarth; her special pet Ally (Cat); neighbour and special friend Nicki Cunday (Garth); brothers Elmer (May) George and Andrew (Lynn) George; step-grandchildren Shane, Evan (Cassie) and Kristen (Josh); step-great-grandchildren Sam, Ellie and Jack; special nephews Denton (Beatrice) George and Murray (Helene) Hoggarth, as well as numerous cousins, nieces and nephews. Selina also held a close, lifelong friendship with Barbara Laliberte (Cowessess/Thunder Bay).

At Selina’s request, no funeral service was held. Arrangements were entrusted to Matthews Funeral Home, Whitewood. Cremation took place at Christie’s Funeral Home and Crematorium, Yorkton, SK, on Friday, November 3, 2017. Interment will follow at a later date.
