Yvonne spent her life teaching others about the love of God, salvation, and eternal life with Jesus Christ. She volunteered many years at St. Francis Xavier Church, St. Vincent DePaul Church, St. Martin Food Bank, Heritage Assisted Living, Church of the Cross, and Freedom Christian Fellowship.
Her greatest joy was to be a Godly mother to Phillip Namour (Melanie), Joseph Namour (Jenny), and Mary Groesser (Jay). She completely adored all of her grandchildren; Deanna Holly (Josh), Christopher Ceccoli, Danielle Menendez (Alex), Jesse Namour (Maggie), and Bethany Bell (Brady).

Her greatest legacy in her own words, “As I was growing up, I was always reminded that this world is a big theater stage. Everyone born gets on that stage for a time and then leaves it for eternity. The role one plays determines the eternity door- either to eternal bliss with the Lord or eternal separation from Him.”
