Rihanna Myra-El Pearson

“He Winyan Wasteiwin”


Rihanna Myra-El Pearson “He Winyan Wasteiwin” age 29 days, of St. Michael, ND, died January 14, 2017, at her home.

Our beautiful baby Rihanna was born in the early morning hours on 12-16-16, to her proud parents Gwyn L. McKay and Randal J. Pearson Sr. Beautiful Baby Rihanna made her appearance surprising “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs” her siblings one sister and seven brothers.

While only here with us for a very short while, beautiful baby Rihanna taught us, little ones like her are smarter than us, loving, compassionate, and can steal your heart and love the second you meet for the first time. Beautiful baby Rihanna touched and captured many, many hearts, she made many laughs and smiles each day with something new she taught us about her.

Beautiful Baby Rihanna about a week after birth was able to hold her head up and look around knowing she was the queen, around the same time she earned her nickname cause of her strong legs and her dislike for changing out of her clothes she would kick, therefore she got the name “Kicks Like A Horse”. Like all the other beauty queens, she had her daily photo shoots from the day she came home, she had her days where only one photo was needed or other days when we took many. At about 3 weeks she surprised Kunsi (Grandma) Myra while relaxing with her in her room she decided “watch this Kunsi!” and she flipped from her back to her tummy.

Beautiful baby Rihanna the brightest star of them all, our precious angel will forever be in our hearts and never forgotten, until we meet again for I cannot wait, fly high my baby.


She is survived by parents Randal Pearson, Sr., and Gwyn McKay; sister Diamond Pearson, brothers Tayshaune Hunger, Kendrick, RJ, Mackie, Sakowin, Wakiyan, and Bear Claw Pearson; paternal grandparents Myra and Jacob Abraham, maternal grandparents Ronald McKay Sr. and Connie Rainbow.



On Thursday, Rihanna will be at her home in St. Michael . On Friday, her Visitation will continue at 10AM in Lighthouse Assembly of God Church, Ft. Totten
