'Thank you' from the family of Helen Grace Edgewater Yazzie

August 1, 2007


On the morning of July 3, our beloved sister, aunt, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother Helen Grace Yazzie reunited with our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Helen was born Feb. 2, 1928 in Tonalea. She lived most of her life in Tuba City.

She was laid to rest on July 7; funeral services were held at the Tuba City Assembly of God Church. Helen attended church there every Wednesday and Sunday for many years. She was a very spiritual woman and well known for her love, kindness, and generosity towards her pets and others.

Throughout her life she touched the lives of many people and memories of her will be cherished dearly. Helen is survived by her seven daughters, one son, 33 grandchildren and 31 great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her late husband Nick Yazzie, and her sons Walter, Kenneth and Calvin Yazzie.

A heartfelt thanks goes out to all who comforted, assisted and financially supported our family during this difficult time. Our sincere appreciation goes to her healthcare provider, Dr. Gary Lake of the Tuba City Regional Health Care Corporation, Pastor Hal Corbett of the Assembly of God Church, Desert Floral Memorial Funeral Home, the Tonaneesdizi Chapter, the Honorable Tonaneesdizi Chapter council delegates Bobby Robbins, Hope McDonald Lonetree and Raymond Maxx, Gap/Bodaway Chapter council delegate Evelyn Acothley, Jimmie Esplain, Theresa Galvan, Jack and Joquetta DeGroat, Margaret Akee, Leon Yellowmexican and Lena Farrell, Glenda Wero, Sylvia Nelson, Florence Shaw, Coleen Secody and many others who donated their time and money. Ahéhee' and God Bless You.
