Obituary - Natasha Monique St. Pierre

Natasha Monique St. Pierre, Eagle Woman (Kiiew Iskwew), 39, began her next journey, leaving us January 12, 2024. She was born October 21, 1984, in Bozeman, Montana, to Nathaniel and Melvina (Hinckley) St. Pierre. At the time of her passing, Natasha was living and employed in Las Vegas working as a concierge.

Natasha was preceded in death by her father Nathaniel, the greatest joy of her life, grandmother Gloria Fisher, and grandfather Roger St. Pierre, Sr.

Natasha graduated from Bozeman Senior High School in 2003. She then went to Bryman College in San Bernardino and graduated in massage therapy in 2006. One of her most-cherished accomplishments was earning her associate degree in human services from Stone Child College in 2016. This was an especially proud moment for her, because she received her diploma from her dad, who was serving as president of the college at that time. Natasha continued to work in various job ventures, but remained focused on becoming a licensed massage therapist.

She loved camping and spending time with her dad outdoors, as referenced by the many photographs taken in Hyalite Canyon, Gallatin National Forest, and Yellowstone Park. She also enjoyed the many opportunities provided by her father in travelling the country and in Europe and spending time with family and friends. She embraced her culture and accompanied her father on several exchange trips to Europe, showcasing Native American dance and song with

performances in Holland and Germany.

She was an animal lover and had two prized, furry companions in her life, Socks the cat and Tino the dog. She enjoyed watching "SVU" and various crime shows as well as comedies. She enjoyed making jewelry, loved Tracy Lawrence and Eminem and had an infectious sense of humor.

Natasha spent some of her early years with her mother in Spokane, where she focused on learning ballet. While her father worked on his undergraduate and graduate degrees at MSU in Bozeman, his mother, Gloria, assisted greatly in her upbringing. She spent time in Bozeman, Rocky Boy, and Las Vegas. After the passing of her grandmother Gloria in 2005, her aunt Stefanie became her most trusted supporter and worked diligently to guide Natasha in daily struggles, challenges, and achievements. She was always there to support and encourage

Natasha and provide her comfort in times of need.

She is survived by her mother, Melvina (John) Hinckley of Spokane; sister Christine from Fort Hall, Idaho; brother, Michael (Kaitlyn) Davis of Spokane; niece Kalia; sister, Alicia (Brandon) Richardson of Olympia, Washington; aunts, Stefanie (Terry) Kujaczynski of Helena; LaCrissa, Brooke, and Brittany (Carlos) of Rocky Boy, uncles, Roger, Jr. of Rocky Boy and Voyd(Margaret) of Havre; grandmothers/aunts Betty and Judy Henderson and Mary Ruth and Donna St. Pierre of Rocky Boy; numerous other extended family within the Henderson and St. Pierre families; and best friend Kelly.

Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Holland and Bonine with wake services held Sunday, January 21, at Our Savior's Lutheran Church in Rocky Boy. Traditional funeral services were held at 10:00 a.m. Monday, January 22, with burial on St. Pierre Ridge, with her final resting place next to her dad, Nate.
