Our Beloved Sister, Semira Harper, passed away on July 7th 2019 in Cañon City, CO. Semira was embarking on a new adventure with the man she loved so deeply.
Semira, 30, was born in Tucson, AZ on March 21st 1989 to Desiree Harper and Mohammad Al-Syeufan. She is predeceased by Lloyd Oatman (GPA). She is survived by Margery Oatman (GMA), longtime Partner Jon Yatsko, siblings Chasiree Mahmoud, Sheena Mahmoud (Christina), Nisreen Al-Alawneh (Gabriel) and Tristan Oatman. Also survived by nephews Alex, CJ, Patrick Mahmoud and Gabriel Villegas.
Everyone who had the pleasure of knowing Semira knew her as being full of life and someone who brought smiles to everyone who crossed her path. She will always be remembered by family, friends and the many hearts she touched. Her memory and infectious smile will always live on through all who knew her.
Semira, above all else, found solace in the Great Outdoors. As a child she would go fishing along the rivers in Alaska with her grandparents and siblings. A tradition she continued as an adult with Jon. She had a sense of peace and tranquillity when she was outdoors doing something, anything, especially nurturing her garden in Alaska. Alaska was and will always be her True Home.
Our Brown Eyed Girl will truly be missed. May you be eternally with GPA receiving endless Big Bear Hugs that you always loved and desired.
We will Forever Miss You!
