Yvonne 6-22-36 3-13-06
I’m writing this myself, so I’m not sure what disease “got me,” but I’ve had a good and interesting life.
I was preceded in death by my parents, Bob and Eliz Yantes, and millions of people buried the world over.
I’m survived by my loving and fun children and their families: Deborah and Brad Anderson, Laura, Hannah, Reuben, Rachel and Aaron; Beckie and Brian Henning, Leah and Matthew; Bradley and Beda Pavek, Burton and Jenifer Pavek, Katie and Joe G, Beth Hallberg, Lindsay, Aliza and special friend Tim Pettit, Sarah Pavek, Evan, Ellen and baby Emily; my dear brother and sister-in-law, Bob and Nancy Yantes; and my special nieces and nephew and their great families.
Also survived by my children’s father and wife, Rollie and Barb Pavek; Arlo Henning and my lovely stepdaughter, Carol; and my nephew Warren Henning.
I’ll miss you all, including my special friends, Rev. Frank Wampach, Dr Bruce Hoggarth, cousin Bill Eppel, Mary Rader, Marie Luptek, Lily Luke, Iris Heinen, and all my friends at Maple Crest.
I’ll let the kids fill in the funeral info, but I’m sure there will be “green Jell-o” in the church basement after the Mass.
I’ll probably be in Purgatory playing Bingo for the next 20 years, so I can wait to see you. Have a long and happy life. I am also survived by you the reader
