Ferry Demarce, born April 18, 1969 to Anna Jane Quintana and Harry Mni.  Ferry  grew up on the Spirit Lake Nation with family.   Her grandpa Frank was one of her favorite people.  She attended Warwick Public School and spent some time at Job Corps in Minot. 

She loved to draw and often drew for others.  She loved to bead and taught her daughters how to also.  She was also great at crosswords.  She was always happy to entertain company over coffee and music. 

Ferry was loved dearly as a mother, sister, grandmother, cousins and friend.  Ferry struggled on and off throughout life but never stayed down.  She could not be defeated.  She was a warrior, not just a survivor.  She will be dearly missed but now she is free.

Ferry is survived by her children Anthony “Tony” Weiker, Samantha “Sam” Littleghost, Anastasia “Tasha” BlueShield, Danielle “Nell” BlueShield, Ethan Cote, Elly BlackBird; grandchildren Nadine, Allasandra, Taytum, Jericka, Karter, Carlos, Toby, Sergia, Kyler, Greysyn, Saphira, Samarah and Hermione; sisters DeeAnn DeMarce, Harriet, DeMarce, and brother Mark DeMarce; cousins Bonnie LeftBear, Clarence LeftBear Sr., Andy DeMarce Sr., Marshall DeMarce, Marlyn DeMarce, Preston DeMarce; nieces Hope, Fernanda, Lupe, Ashley, Alisa, Dusty; nephews Billye, Jeffery, Julius, AJ, Cody, Dakota and Nicholas.
