Yvonne Marie Watkins passed away at home the morning of Friday January 10, 2014. She spent her final weeks surrounded by family and care.

Yvonne was a daughter, a sister, a mother, an aunt, a friend, a dance partner, a teacher, and most recently a grandmother. She was all these things and very much more. She passed away just shy of her 61st birthday, but to say she is "survived" by her friends and family is an understatement.

Her life was not an example of mere existence, but one lived with purpose, passion, heart, laughter, and wisdom. The strength of her spirit could not be overcome by adversity and illness. Even in death, the spirit was not extinguished, but remains in those she loved and loved her.

This spring her ashes will be taken to the beaches of Lake Michigan in Indiana to be spread by her family. Let this be a place for us to celebrate her with our memories.

Yvonne was a class act, as an educator, and friend. She was always professional and friendly to all, with a smile, that would light up a room, when she entered. I will miss her, but will not forget her. The children she taught, now will go forward, with the skills and attitudes, that was part of her daily life in her classroom. Way to go!!!

To all of Yvonne's family, I remember her beautiful smile and contagious laugh. She certainly brought a lot of both into our lives. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

"I was always glad to see Yvonne because I just knew it'd be a good time. She'd come over and grab you out to the dance floor with a somewhat mischievous but contagious smile that said "c'mon, who cares, let's have FUN!!""

"Yvonne-- Thank you forever for your wonderful children, Jen & Ryan. We share precious Henry, our grandson. I know in another reality we would have been best buds. Can you imagine the trouble we two grandmas would get into? Crazy! Love you, Gr'Anni"

"As we were raising our children, she reminded me to enjoy each moment. Her quirky humor and laughter made an ordinary day special. She was the mom my kids loved to spend time with and share life stories."

"Yvonne could dance it up with the best of us. Her great laugh and good sense of humor (she laughingly threw her dirty sock in my face while we were watching a RomCom together because I was talking during the "good" part) will stay with me always."
