Condolences to Jose and rest of family. Very sweet lady. Many annual Union picnics with her and Jose.
My sister in Christ and friend Yolanda will be thought of often and missed by me and I’m sure by so many others. The reason I’m sure is because she was the kindest and most loving person I have ever met. We became good friends because her and her husband reached out to me and showed me such love and kindness at a time when my life was falling apart. We instantly attached to each other from then on out. For a while there, they would invite me out to eat with them and that’s when we got to know each other a lot better. She loved talking about her kids and her grandkids. She would just light up when she would mention their names. She always had really nice things to say about them. I could tell how much she loved her family and her husband too. We reminisced about a lot of things. One thing I won’t forget is the kindness and the compassion that she showed me. She would always encourage me all the time. I love the way that she would call me mija. So to me she was like a second mom. I loved her laugh and her smile. It was very contagious. Her and her husband came into my life at a point when I felt so hopeless. They would regularly drop groceries by my house. They would pick me up and take me to church with them when my car was broke down. They would come by just to check on me. That’s the kind of people they are. They love being the hands and feet of Jesus. I learned through their example how to give back. I learned it’s okay to reach in and help someone that’s in need. They are the most beautiful people I have ever known. I will truly miss my Sister Yolanda. But I know she’s exactly where she wanted to be, in the arms of Jesus.
May you RIP Yolanda

I have many memories of my Auntie Yolanda when they lived in Kansas she taught all of us how to place Jax she was absolutely awesome at playing and back then her favorite soda pop was TaB in the pink can. As well I remember her little poodle Ashes auntie always had her bows on that matched her nail polish on her little poodles paws!! I’m going to miss you Auntie Yolanda!! All my love and condolences to my Uncle Joe and all my cousins my prayers are with you all!!
My Auntie Yolanda you will truly be missed I will especially miss my visits with you and Uncle Joe and my phone calls with both of you I remember how much you liked Betty Boop and Tap soda . My condolences to all the family. You are finally home and with Josephine I know you’re smiling and holding her. Love you always Auntie!
You will truly be missed Auntie, you had a kind, compassionate, and loving soul. You definitely were the queen of Jax. Teaching us wasn’t easy. Auntie had to have a lot of patience teaching us how to bounce the ball and have control along with focus to pick up the Jax and catch the bouncing ball . I remember your beautiful laugh. I do remember Ashes your poodle. She was very spoiled by you and Uncle Joe. Auntie loved her family so much and she loved her Christian family just as well. I remember a conversation we had she said, ” Come to hell or high water no one can keep her from Church.” Amen Auntie! Now her beautiful spirit lives in the kingdom of God. Thank you Lord for the time we had with Auntie.
