Yvonne was a loving individual who cared deeply for her family, friends, and all those around her. She was a blessing to all those she came in contact with. She welcomed everyone with open arms and treated them as if they were her own family. She exemplified her faith and the love of Christ in her daily walk. Through all the trials and triumphs in life, Yvonne never lost sight of her faith. She had a deep desire to help others and she went above and beyond to show kindness and compassion to all. She started and ran the food pantry at her local church which helped and continues to help many families and people in need. In addition to her servants’ heart, Yvonne loved building meaningful relationships with those around her. She spread her love and warmth through various activities like teaching the girls in her local church to crochet, sew, and enjoy the little things in life, like ice cream and swimming on a warm summer day.  Her kind heart and smile will be sorely missed by many, but her legacy will live on through those who have been blessed with knowing her.
