On Friday, April 9, 2010 Mary Ellen Yellow Bird-Garcia (aka Red Day) left us and went to be with her relatives in the spirit world.

She passed away in Grand Forks, North Dakota at the Altrue Hospital.  She was 51 years old.  Mary Ellen suffered from emphysema and asthma which finally took her life.  She worked at Mystic Lake Casino as a security guard for over 10 years.  We’ll always remember Mary, standing in her uniform at the Mystic Lake Hotel with a great big smile.  Mary will be missed by many, as she was friends to many.

Mary is being brought back to Minneapolis to be laid to rest at the Hillside Cemetery.  Wake and Funeral Services will be held at the Indian Ministry, 3045 Park Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN  55407.  The Wake will begin at 7:00 p.m., Tuesday, April 13th and the Funeral Services will begin with a mass at 10:00 a.m. on Wednesday, April 14th.

Mary is survived by her husband Philippe Garcia and daughters; Shontel Lajeunesse, Sophia Red Day, Crystal Red Day and Amber Lajeunesse.  She has several grandchildren and close relatives who loved her very much and many, many friends.
