Remembering your family in the loss of Yvonne. So many memories of good times at Community Church and the special family she raised and loved so much. God bless you all and the many memories you will hold near and dear to your heart. Larry and Louise Grimm
Dick and I are saddened to hear of Yvonne's passing. Even before Dick and I met, I (Bev) got to know Yvonne at the Pizza Haus. I would often take my son and his friend there to eat and Yvonne was always so friendly and gracious. She would tease my son and his friend in a fun and happy way and always made us feel so welcome. She was a special lady and always had a twinkle in her eye that showed the love that was in her heart. Dick and Bev Snakenberg
My sympathy to the family. I worked with her at Amana Refrigeration many years ago. Nice lady.

You are in our thoughts and prayers, I loved that lady! Arlyn & Louise Wade
Many good memories of Yvonne and her family as I grew up with her kids at Community, and some sad ones too (was pall bearer as a young person when Linda died). May all the family know the Lord's comfort at this time and have their hearts directed to the Savior whom Yvonne loved and served, and whose face she now sees! I've been praying for you to that end. Dave Merck

So sorry to hear of Yvonne's passing. What a nice lady and what a nice family she had. May she rest in peace. Amen. May her family get comfort from Our Lord God and her wonderful memory.
