It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of our beloved daughter, sister, granddaughter, niece, cousin, and friend Aaliyah Josephine Melting Tallow, also lovingly remembered as “Star”. Aaliyah was born on May 14, 2005, in Calgary Alberta. She was called back home on December 13, 2023, at the age of 18 years old. The world became dimmer and stars became brighter on December 13, 2023, when Aaliyah was called home to join our ancestors.
In her short time on Earth, Aaliyah has touched the lives and hearts of many people from all walks of life due to her gentle, kind, and naturally beautiful nature. Although she was born an only child, Aaliyah had many chosen siblings and family.
“She was a very talented and proud First Nations woman and shared a passion for advocacy, singing/drumming, nature, music, arts, family, and enjoying the beauty in life.”
Aaliyah is survived by her loving parents Jason Melting Tallow and Tasha McMaster; her grandmother Frieda Melting Tallow; grandparents Floyd and Sharon Melting Tallow; grandfather Jason Running Rabbit; great-grandmother Veronica (Raymond) Brewer; aunts Naomi (Nacanieli) Melting Tallow, Daina Melting Tallow, Melissa (Levi) Little Mustache, Zabrina McMaster; great-aunts Philomena (Rusty) Schindler, Charlene (Radford) Brewer, Michelle (Byron) Big Throat, Maria (Darwin) Chief Moon, Janice (Owen) Running Rabbit, Lana Brewer; aunts and uncles; cousins she took as sisters and brothers; her cherished nieces and nephews; and all those who loved her so dearly.
She was predeceased by grandmothers Frankina Melting Tallow and Hester McMaster; great grandparents Frank and Josephine Melting Tallow; great grandmother Clara ManyBears.
