Shyla loved spending her time with her close family. When spending time together there was lots of joking and laughter. Her favourite thing to do was spend time with her daughter Amelia Kelly alongside Nigel Kelly. She had a good sense of fashion and loved to dress herself up and take lots of selfies. Whenever her best friend Megan Atatise came into town they would get together and laugh until their belly’s hurt! When she was younger she loved to go on the pow wow trail with her family which she would be dancing in her Fancy Shawl regalia. She was often seen with her late mother Darlene, they were closer than two peas in a pod! She also enjoyed her time with her sisters and brothers cause it was always mayhem and you would never know what you were going to get, either laughter or wrestling to be King of the Hill, or just sitting around enjoying the silence. Pallbearers will be Shyla’s friends and family. Honourary Pallbearers will be Kristen Boshey, Megan Atatise, Tevor Boshey Sr, Christopher Big George, Christine Ottertail, Trisha Morrison-Boshey, Nigel Kelly, Damion (Boy) Morrison, Dennis (Meat Pie) Morrison.
