Jamelle Dee Stevens

-

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Jamelle Stevens of Beaumont, Alberta. Jamelle was born on August 18, 1971 in Calgary, Alberta. She moved to Red Deer with her family in 1979, where she lived through her high school years and completed a Secretarial Sciences diploma at Red Deer College. Shortly after the arrival of her wonderful son Keenan she moved to Calgary where she worked as a stenographer for the Government of Canada. From there she moved to Ponoka where she worked for first the RCMP and then the Pê Sâkâstêw Institution in Hobbema. While in Ponoka she was blessed with the birth of her sons Bryant and Colin. Jamelle then got a job for Environment Canada in Edmonton and moved her family to Beaumont. She realized quickly that Beaumont was the place where she belonged, and she developed a great love for this wonderful town. Jamelle returned to school and received her Bachelor of Arts degree, with a major in Native Studies, after which she began working for Human Resources with the Government of Canada. Jamelle is pre-deceased by her father Dale, and is survived by her three wonderful sons, Keenan, Bryant and Colin and mother, Sharon Stevens. She is also survived by her brothers Scott, and his girlfriend Shantelle Boatright, Dean, and his wife Nicole, and Carter Kokotylo, and her sister Amanda, as well as her nieces Taylor, Sara, and Sequoia, and her nephews Nick, Nathan, Eric and Dakota. Jamelle had a profound love of hockey, and worked tirelessly for the Beaumont Amateur Hockey Association as a volunteer for many years. Great appreciation and love goes to the entire community of Beaumont for everything they have done. Jamelle’s family would like to extend their deep gratitude to her very special circle of friends, who gave of themselves so much, and truly showed us all the meaning of devotion and love.

I went to school with Jamelle from elementary right up through high school. We weren’t the best of friends, but still friends all the same. Another star will light the heavens tonight. Rest In Paradise, Jamelle <3

I was so sad to hear of Jamelle’s passing. Even thought we have not spoken a lot since high school, she did give words of encouragement. And in high school, it was her and the other cheerleaders, who made me feel like I actually fit in some where, for once. I send hugs out to her family and friends. If anyone from Red Deer is going, I would really appreciate a ride to the service.

I never had the pleasure of meeting Jamelle. I did have the honour of working on the wish through The Angels Annonymus Connection. I feel through this that we did have a connection. I am so very sorry for your loss what a beautiful lady she was. Take comfort in knowing she lives on through you all.

Jackie Parnell

So very sorry for your loss. Jamelle had amazing strength and certainly fought hard against a terrible disease. God bless you Jamelle.

I am so sorry for your family’s loss. I remember Jamelle as a vivacious and positive student in my grade 12 high school English class. I hope your wonderful memories will be some comfort at this difficult time.

I met Jamelle at GNH unit 43, my Father was there to.
Jamelle, you will always be remembered by me for, the loving stories you told me of your 3 sons, the care you had for everyone in unit 43.
The cleaning and organizing the movies in alphabetical order.
My fondest memorie is when we went out to my car at 6am, we just sat and talked.
Thank you for hugging me when I needed you.
Rest in peace my friend

I will always remember Jamelle’s wonderful bellowing from the hockey stands as we watched our boys play! A beautiful, sensitive woman (way more sensitive than most people realized), she would do anything she could if you needed help. I remember going over to her house for tea with the ladies and each of us cutting off a chunk of her beautiful thick hair so she could donate it before it started falling out from treatment. You were an amazing lady Jamelle! You will be missed by so many.
