Anita Yazzie Vernon, 68, passed away on October 27, 2021. She was born on August 1, 1953, in Star Lake, New Mexico to Charlie Y. and Elsie Toledo.
Anita was a member of Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints and proud member of the Navajo tribe. She is remembered fondly by her granddaughters with the following kind words:
‘’Our Grandma was funny, kind and a joker. She is the greatest storyteller we know. She would always take us to feed the ducks. She was always a party full of laughter, love and good times. She has given us many treasured memories; enough to last us our lifetime. She had the most beautiful soul, laugh and smile. She was the strongest person we knew. Our favorite memory was when she was almost arrested for calling the fire chief a ‘butthair’. We are so blessed to call her our grandma and to have received all the love she gave us’’.
Anita is survived by her husband, Ray L. Vernon; sons, Eric Miko (Tasha) Toledo of Albuquerque, NM, Deric Daniel Toledo of Cottonwood, AZ; sisters, Emma Y. Toledo of Star Lake, NM, Nina G.
