She is also survived by her adopted children Hughie (Carolyn) Sinclair, Jennifer (Jason) Sherbo, Quinton (Harriet) Broad Scalplock, Ivan (Lillian) Checkosis, Dallas (Lisa), Jayena (Wayde), and Jaymie (Lori); her sisters Annie and Ina (Darrol); adopted sister Patsy Rider; sisters-in-law Marlene and Catherine Powderface and family; brother-in-law Gerald (Jennie) Clarke. Beatrice is also survived by the Weaselchild Family, family from Morley, Eden Valley and the Blackfeet / Blackfoot Confederacy; and special daughter-in-law Tessa Jones.

Beatrice was predeceased by her loving husband Fred (Papa) Powder; her parents Douglas and Beatrice Poucette; in laws Isaiah and Lucille Powderface; siblings Mina (Carl), Zalinda, Ronald (Barbara), Franklin, Ricky, and Frankie; sisters-in- law and brothers -in-law from the Powderface family; grandchildren Baby E.
