On behalf of the family of Mary Mardell Lomayestewa Shing, we express deep appreciation for the help and support in bidding farewell to our mother and grandmother.

Dawa, as she was known by our family, touched many people in the 84 years she lived with us. As our mother she taught us to treat all people with respect, not speak ill of anyone and to love one another.

The legacy she leaves with us is to live a good life and always be there to help one another. Thank you to all our relatives, adopted family members who were threre to provide support during our time of need.

Special thanks to members of the Tuba City LDS Church, and the medical staff at Tuba City Medical Hospital and Flagstaff Medical Hospital who provided excellent care for our mother.

Thank you to Charles Billy for providing all burial arrangements.
