Amy Rose Mike, 70, passed away on May 10, 2013 in Phoenix. Funeral services were held May 17 at the First Assembly of God Church in Holbrook. Interment followed in the Holbrook City Cemetery.
She was born on April 18, 1943, in Ganado.
She was a homemaker, and attended Pentecostal Church of God in Holbrook.
She enjoyed herding sheep, weaving Navajo rugs, quilting and sewing clothes for family. She loved being surrounded by her grandkids, family and friends.
She enjoyed watching her grandkids’ basketball games, and shopping for the newest fragrance at Bath and Body Works. She loved going to church. If you didn’t find her in the kitchen cooking, you were more than likely to find her at Romo’s or Wayside Cafe with her family.
She enjoyed watching Joel Olsteen, TJ Jakes and Joyce Myers, as well as Tyler Perry stage plays and movies.
Singing Navajo hymns with her grandkids and reading her Bible were her ways of relaxing.
A humble and loving person she was. Her smiles, hugs and kindness will never be forgotten.
Survivors include her daughters, Emily Mike of Show Low and Carmelita Mike of Holbrook; four sisters, Nancy Yazzie of Indian Wells, Nellie Hasdale of Los Angeles, Calif., Mary Caboni of Rough Rock and Mavis Thomas of Mike Springs; three brothers, Harry Mike of Indian Wells, Dickie Mike of Snowflake and Peter Mike of Greasewood; and four grandchildren.
She was preceded in death by her father, James Mike; her mother, Susie Mike; two sisters, Bessie Yazzie and Anna Tsosie; two brothers, Larry Mike and John Mike; a niece, Evelyn Williams; and a nephew, Jameson Thomas.
Greer’s Mortuary of Winslow was in charge of the arrangements.
