Arizona’s longest-living veteran dies at age 105



WINDOW ROCK, Ariz. — Navajo Nation officials say a 105-year-old woman who served in World War II and was Arizona’s longest-living veteran has died.

They say Sophie Yazzie died Saturday in Tucson.

Yazzie, who was born in 1914 in the Arizona town of Canyon de Chelly, enlisted with the U.S. Army Air Corps at age 28 and served until she was honorably discharged.

Following her military service, Yazzie returned home and worked at Wingate Boarding School while raising her children with her husband before retiring.

Tribal officials say she had four children, five grandchildren and five great-grandchildren with her late husband Jordan B. Yazzie.

A list of Sophie Yazzie’s survivors wasn’t immediately available Sunday and a her funeral services were pending.


Reported 26 January 2020, and sorry, no photo for this one.

Rest in peace.
