Felicia Dawn was born on April 27, 1994 at Mercy Hospital, Devils Lake to Alvin Owlboy Sr. and Myrna Whiteshield. She was the middle child of 5 children they had together. Fee was raised by her grandparents Francis and Lillie Owlboy Sr. Felicia graduated from Four Winds High School in 2012 and continued her education at CCCC in Automotive Technology. She had recently enrolled at CCCC for the fall semester.

Growing up at her grandparents, Francis and Lillie, she learned to love horses. She was a barrel racer and broke ponies. Fee and her sister Marie would compete every year at the Fort Totten Days Youth Rodeo and broke ponies also. Growing up, they would always be seen riding horse around St. Michael's and giving people horseback rides.

As Fee started getting older, tattoos start becoming her obsession, almost every part of her body has a tattoo on it. She also loved playing basketball with her younger sister Danielle, as they both played for Four Winds. They also went to summer basketball leagues together and shooting hoops around at their grandma's or going to the Rec. Center.

Felicia loved having kids with her. She helped raise her niece Kayonna and nephews Avery and Devon Azure Jr. If someone needed a sitter, she would always say yes. At one point, watching 7 kids, being able to get them all fed and to bed without a fuss. She also loved to clean and cook and her food was always so good. She also enjoyed working on cars and fixing things, these talents she learned from her Dad.

She loved spending time with her sisters and brother when she could, she had a good heart.

Fee will be so very missed and was so loved by her family which includes her mother Myrna Whiteshield; grandmother Lillie Owlboy; kids D'Angelo Owlboy and Kayonna Whiteshield; sisters Brittany Whiteshield, Marie Owlboy (her cousin her she grew up with and took each other as sisters), Danielle (Marcus) Owlboy, Samantha (Jore) Owlboy and Tara Jackson; brothers Jeff Whiteshield, Alvin Owlboy Jr., Joseph Yankton and Kalem Jackson; grandparents Sheila Belgarde, Louella "Lulu" Thompson, Imogene Belgarde, Arlene Belgarde, Audrey Belgarde,,,, Larry Belgarde, Alfred "Fatts" Thompson, Skip Longie and Frenchie Gourd; godchildren Avery Azure, Devon Azure Jr., Aleeyah Whiteshield, Alvin Whiteshield and Layla Whiteshield; aunties Bonnie Owlboy, Chepa Owlboy, Lisa Owlboy, Cheryl Begarde, Jayda Longie, Kasey Lovejoy, Fanette Lovejoy and Ivy Lovejoy; uncles Peter Owlboy Sr., Francis Owlboy Jr., Lonnie Owlboy, Keith Longie and Gerald Longie; nieces and nephews Jayden Cook, Aleeyah Whiteshield, Layla Whiteshield, AJ Whiteshield, Nicole Whiteshield (she delivered her), Marissa Whiteshield, Jeffery Whiteshield Jr., Caelyn Jackson, Anastasia Owlboy, Avery Azure and Devon Azure Jr.
