  2. As friends and former neighbors of the Youngren family we extend our sincere condolences to the family for the recent passing of Yvonne Youngren. We know her life touched many relatives and friends. We enjoyed our visits with her. She will be missed by all who knew her.

    As a long time neighbor and former resident of the Beulah-Goodpasture community I personally knew many of the family including Fred Youngren, the carpenter and his son, Ray Youngren and grandson, Raymond Albert. These were all nice neighbors and friends.

    Our Deepest Sympathy,
    Roy and Linda Roper

  3. Yvonne, I’ve only known you for a few short years, but what an impact you made. I loved our conversations, our first was you confirming the reputation that proceeded you 🙂 You shared your joy of life with me, laughed and joked with me and warmed my heart. I feel blessed for getting to know you.
    Enjoy your your self catching up with your loved ones! I’m sure you’re making them all laugh! We love you, Jim and Julie

  4. CandleImageI will certainly miss Yvonne. She has shown me a number of “kindnesses” over the years. I so appreciated that she allowed me to “bird watch” at her pond . . . and would even join me in the viewing. She certainly defined the word, “spunk!”

  5. Yvonne stopped by a month or so ago to drop an article about Mike. She talked about not being ready to die. We talked about my mom and aunts. She was best friends with my Aunt Lillian Koger in high school. She will be missed.

  6. Sending our deepest sympathy to the Youngren and Kirkland families. May you be comforted with sweet memories of Yvonne that will bring you peace in the days ahead. May the Lord give you comfort and cover you with His love.
    Tanky & Deede Lowry

  7. I’m so sorry about your mom, she’d call me and said lets to go out and have fun but she never did make a plan
    I don’t think she felt good for a long time. Love you all
