AKWESASNE – With her loving family by her side, Natasha J. “Wahiakwas” Francis, Snipe Clan, 41, of Recreation Road, Cornwall Island lost her courageous battle with cancer on Thursday evening, June 27, 2019 at Cornwall Community Hospital.

She had a great gift of creativity by making various crafts and beadwork. She also was very “tech” savvy and could fix pretty much any type of electronic equipment. She enjoyed listening to music and cherished the time she was able to spend with her family.

Tasha is survived by her children, Brandon Francis, Tianna Francis and her companion, Tyrone Johnson, Aidan Francis and her companion, Jaron Kasiban, and Ryan Francis, all of Akwesasne; her grandson, Kyler Francis; her father, Robert of Akwesasne and her mother, Emily of Ottawa. She is also survived by her siblings, Austin and Kayla Boots of South Carolina; Anthony Francis and his companion, Brenda Benson of Akwesane; Tara Francis of Cornwall; Jory and Jenna Francis, both of Akwesasne, her chosen siblings, Angie and Steve Barnes, Stanley “JoJo” Francis and his companion, Maggie Chubb, Lisa and Jay Benedict, Missy and Jay Herne, JennyBoots, and Meghan Barnes, all of Akwesasne; and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.

She was predeceased by her chosen parents, Stanley and Elizabeth Francis; her maternal grandparents, Michael and Agnes Boots; her great grandparents, Michael and Mary “Mae” Thompson; and her niece, Jayden Barnes.

Friends may call starting Monday 2:00 PM at the Akwesasne Homemakers, where funeral services will be held Wednesday 1:00 PM.

At Tasha’s request, those wishing to send flowers are asked to send only white flowers and those wishing to offer food to family, to please refrain from sending sandwiches.
