Yvonne was born Oct. 5, 1946. She was raised in Ridgecrest, graduated Burroughs in 1964, married the love of her life and celebrated 54 wonderful years with him. She was a light that brightened any space she came into. She loved her family, her church family, any stranger she came in contact with, and most importantly the Lord.

She was a preacher’s daughter, a pastor’s wife, she led several women’s Bible studies, and in Jr. High she started teaching Sunday school to many children. She wore many hats and touched more lives than can be named. She loved to sing and play the piano.

For every moment in her life she could put a scripture verse or song to it…and often times both! She was dearly loved by so many!! This is surely our loss, but Heaven’s gain as she is singing with the Angels and sitting at Jesus’ feet.
