  • ...Umonhon (Omaha) Lodge loses one of its own...

    This came as quite a shocker yesterday afternoon.
    Corwin, otherwise known as Thousand was one of the original Lodgers back in the days of wbs and chat. Services were this past weekend. He will be missed.

    MACY, Neb. -- Corwin Saunsoci, a member of the Omaha Tribe of Nebraska and a resident of Macy, departed this life Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2007, at a Sioux City hospital.

    Services will be noon Saturday at the Alfred Gilpin Building in Macy, with Frank and Christine Saunsoci officiating. Burial will be in Omaha Cemetery. Visitation will be until service time Saturday at the Native American Church. Arrangements are under the direction of Munderloh Funeral Home in Pender, Neb.

    Corwin was born April 20, 1960, the son of Oliver Saunsoci Jr. and Charlotte (Lasley) Saunsoci. He was raised in Lincoln, Neb. and Macy. He attended Macy Public School and graduated from the Nebraska Indian Community College. He had been employed for many years in the gaming industry as the chairman of the Omaha Tribal Gaming Commission. He also was the director of the Omaha Tribe Realty Department.

    He was strongly active in the pipe way and the powwow circuit. He traveled to many places throughout the United States and Canada. He was a composer and dancer along with being the head singer of Umonhon Lodge.

    He will be lovingly remembered by his five children, Sarah, Morningstar, Skyy, Talon and Jada Saunsoci; a granddaughter, Naveah Jackson; his siblings, Gail Saunsoci, Adrian Saunsoci, Oliver Evan Saunsoci III, Quintin Saunsoci, Michelle Saunsoci, Olivia Saunsoci, Mary Saunsoci, Brennon Lasley, Yolanda Faausuusu and Adriana Saunsoci; his uncles, Henry Lasley Jr., Richard Lasley Sr., Gary Lasley Sr., John Lasley and James Lasley; and his aunts, Eleanor Baxter, Maxine Anderson, Cora Belle Saunsoci, Charlene Lasley, Charmion Lasley and Sharon Lasley.

    He was preceded in death by his mother, Charlotte; and his older brother, Timothy Saunsoci.[/B]
