1927 - 2021

Hope was born on October 15, 1927 in Bird Springs, AZ to Marie and Charlie John. She was the second oldest of thirteen children. Hope was Biih Bitoodnii (Deer Spring Clan) born for Tsi'naajinii (Black Streak Wood People Clan). She married John B. Harrison and they raised their children at Navajo Army Depot in Bellemont, AZ. Hope then returned to Bird Springs where she spent the rest of her life.

Hope is survived and will be remembered by her five daughters Esther (Bob) Miller, June (Mauri) Jim, Ruth Harrison, Delores (Ernest) Murray, and Melinda Harrison, along with her 13 grandchildren, 20 great grandchildren, and four great great grandchildren. Hope is preceded in death by her parents, three siblings, husband John, son John B. Harrison Jr., daughter Evelyn Harrison, and two grandchildren Rachael Murray and Bryan Curley.

Hope will be remembered for her sense of humor, stories told over cooking, love of weaving, and the softest grandma hands that brought endless comfort. Hope's family would like to thank the staff at Flagstaff Medical Center and at the Haven for taking care of her as she left this world.

A graveside service will be held on Friday, January 29, 2021 at 10 am at the Arizona Veterans Memorial Cemetery - Camp Navajo. A larger celebration of life is being planned for Summer, 2021.
