Obituary: Rebecca Ann Watahomigie
My Lifeline
In the sky

Everywhere I look

I see blue

The helicopter is blue, too

Soaring through the air

Over the canyon

Like an eagle.

It takes me

Away from the real world

To a blue heaven

With fluffy white ghosts

I am a ghost in the sky

Watching over the earth.

- MistyBlue Watahomigie,

Sept. 16, 1990

Williams-Grand Canyon News

Rebecca Ann Watahomigie, 60, of Grand Canyon, Ariz, joined her beloved daughter MistyBlue Josephine in the spirit world on Tuesday evening, Jan. 29, 2013. She was born on March 12, 1952 in Arizona.

Watahomigie was a lifelong resident of the Grand Canyon Village. She graduated from Grand Canyon High School in 1970 and worked for Xanterra-Fred Harvey at the Grand Canyon for over 38 years. An avid sports fan and enthusiastic world traveler, she enjoyed camping trips with her nieces and visiting with relatives on the Havasupai Reservation. Watahomigie especially enjoyed being a mother. Her heart was broken when her precious MistyBlue left this world in 2007.

Watahomigie is survived by her brother Victor (Rose); sister Anna; nieces Diana, Shana, and Iris (Spencer); nephew Nathaniel (Ginny); and great nieces Cree Brothers-Watahomigie, Kynzie Watahomigie, Ciara Watahomigie-Tayah, and Cheyenne Watahomigie-Peterson. She is preceded in death by her parents Elmer and Josephine, nephew Victor Jr., and her beautiful daughter MistyBlue Josephine.

A traditional Havasupai wake was held 6 p.m., on Feb. 2, 2013 at the Community Building, Grand Canyon, Ariz.
