Aimee Rochelle Adams, 33, of Couchiching First Nation, passed away suddenly on Friday, Oct. 25, 2013 at La Verendrye General Hospital in Fort Frances with her loved ones by her side.
She was born Sept. 4, 1980 to Calvin and Peggy Adams.
She lived in the Fort Frances area all of her life, attending high school here and earning her Personal Support Worker diploma at the local college.
Earning that diploma was a proud moment for Aimee, and she enjoyed working with the elderly. She always was patient and kind, and was known to be able to get a smile from everyone.
She was a proud mother of three beautiful children; they were the light of her life and she cherished every moment with them. She was selfless and beautiful, everyone had a place in her heart, and she wanted everyone to be safe and healthy.
Aimee had many challenges the last several years but had turned a corner. She had found herself and was looking forward to the future.
She leaves behind her daughter, Alex, and her father, John; sons, Austin and Brady, and their father, Cal; her mother, Peggy Adams; and her father, Calvin Adams and wife, Heikke.
Also surviving are her brother, Mike, and wife, Michelle, and their children, Ethan, Naomi, Sierra, Ashton, Sam, and Shayna, and one great-nephew, Chucky; stepsister, Felisha; special friend, Clint Perreault; as well as numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Aimee was predeceased by her grandparents, Ethel and Percy Adams and Jack and Muriel Marr; and infant sister, Tammy.

A traditional funeral ceremony was held on Wednesday, Oct. 30, 2013 at 10 a.m. at the Couchiching First Nation multi-use facility.
