Barbara PIERRE

PIERRE, Barbara The sun set a little more slowly Friday, as if the world was as reluctant as we all are, to say goodbye to Barb and enter a new day without her. She made the world brighter, more full of color, more full of laughter and love and she will be missed dearly by all who were blessed enough to have her in their lives. She was a cherished daughter, an incredible sister and loving mother, and we collectively mourn the loss of Barbara Allison Pierre, 40, who passed away Friday, March 28th near Usk, WA. She was born to Chop and Audrey Pierre, December 26th, 1973, in Spokane, WA. Barb was survived by her husband, Ed Scott and her five children: Samantha George, Darian Dalton, Tempest Pierre, Jaeden Matt and Joe Matt Jr; her parents: Chop and Audrey Pierre; her brothers, Ray (Leanna) and Nick (Janelle); her sisters April (David), and Sarah, her grandchildren: Destiny, Shaila and Lucky "Big Sexy" Matt, as well as countless Aunts, Uncles, Nieces, Nephews and Cousins. While she loved powwows and stick games, her greatest joy was simply being with her children, her family and the hundreds of people that had the pleasure of her friendship. She lived and enjoyed a life full of people that loved her endlessly and she returned that to everyone she met and then some. Barb worked at Northern Quest Resort & Casino and was attending the Spokane Tribal College where she maintained an "A" average. A Rosary Service will be held Monday, March 31st at 7 pm at the Kalispel Community Center in Usk, WA.
