Fantasia Eileen Rose Rock Above, 26, of Billings went home to be with the Lord on September 9, 2023. She was born in Sheridan, Wyoming on June 18, 1997 to Deserae Rock Above and Jeff North Peigan, Jr. Fantasia was raised by her auntie and uncle, Loretta Gros Ventre and Dee Nomee, Kenny Wyles and her grandparents Cecelia Gail and Frazier White Hip. Fantasia grew up in the Wyola area with her great grandmother, the late Harriet Don’t Mix, who raised her as her own. She also grew up in the Sioux Pass area at the late Paul and Bertha Nomee ranch.
In 2001 Fantasia was the Fourth of July Princess for the Lodge Grass District, and also again in 2007. When going to school in Lodge Grass, she played basketball and ran track. She enjoyed being a mechanic and being around her brothers. In 2010, Fantasia and Lessa took the four-wheeler out for a ride and came back with an elk before the men came back from hunting. Fantasia and her sister Brittney were like Thelma and Louise. She also loved riding horses, to cruise around, listen to music, and hang out with her friends and family. She welcomed everybody with open arms. She really liked to harass her brothers-in-law.
In 2016, she met Jasper Half. They had two beautiful children together, Jaziree and Jazlene Half. In 2019, she met Leroy Takes Horse, and from that union were born Aquines Tanita and Randall Walker Takes Horse. Fantasia loved all her nieces and nephews, but she favored Qusay Spoonhunter, who she called Quman.
