It’s been nearly three weeks since they lost their sister.

Courtney Elizabeth Marie Pruden was 25 years old.

This is the latest blow for the family, who was relocated as flood evacuees from the Little Saskatchewan First Nation six years ago.

Their father died of a stroke in June, now Courtney’s death is being investigated as an overdose, but her brother and sister don’t believe that.
