We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Chinook
Mariah Paige Doney unexpectedly passed away to be with the creator on August 28, 2021. Mariah was born on February 26, 1992 to Charlene Tipton Perry and Jay Doney in Havre, MT. She was raised with her brother and sister in Fort Belknap and later moved to Hays, Malta, and finally Havre. She attended school in Harlem, she enjoyed spending time with her sister Tracey, her Mother and Step Dad Vaughn, her auntie Jana and all of her good friends, mainly Mariah Hoops, Dawn Thomas, Tylynne Messerly, and Mariel Talksdifferent.
Mariah was always helpful, she could cook up a delicious meal out of what little was available and it always tasted great. That was her and Keenan’s specialty: “Ghetto Gourmet”. Mariah is a great Mom, she did everything for her 6 children with what little she had, never wanted for anything that’s for sure. She was generous and kind hearted to everyone that she knew, not a mean bone in her. She was always laughing and smiling even through her good times and bad. She had a way of making jokes during her visits. The lady in her was quite western! One thing about Mariah, she would always call and check up on us, see if we were okay, and let us know she was still hanging in there. She was very close to her Brother Keenan, her Sister Tracey, her Aunt Jana, and of course Char and Vaughn, “Momma come get me”. Of course we would always come pick her up, day or night, and end up staying weeks at a time, even though she would say just a few days. Mariah’s laugh and her beautiful smile and the memories she left on all of our hearts will never be forgotten.
Mariah is survived by her Children Mackenzie, Kylee, White Plume, Susanna, Melody, and Kathi Manuel, Mother Charlene and Vaughn Perry, Father Jay Doney (Janice) her brother Keenan Doney, Clay and Tyler Doney, her Sisters Tracey (Walter Snell), Madison Doney, her Auntie Jana Doney, Lailani Upham, Amanda Nezperce, Grandmothers Dixie Brown, Susan Messerly, Linda Bell, and great Grandmother Yvonne Bigby.
Mariah is preceded in death by her angel baby, her Grandpa Cree Doney, Grandpa Gary Tipton, great great Grandma Cecelia Cuts the rope DeCelles.
Mariah is blessed with a huge extended family, apologies if we left anyone out.
