Uncle Sam and Family,

Dad and Donna called.  So sad Aunt Yvonne had to leave us all so early in life. She was very special to me (all of us) as you are too!  She always made me feel special and it was so wonderful that she would come over to chat with Mom keeping her up to date on what was happening with family and friends.  She will be missed in so many ways!   GOD BLESS ALL OF YOU.

Much love,

I deeply loved Yvonne because I, often times, talked to her more times than my father when he worked at Scotts. †She was a feisty person who I got to know, in a unique way.
Whenever I went home sick from school, which by the way was often (because who really likes high school) , it was Yvonne who would pick me up and I thought of her as part of my family.
I am so saddened by the news and give my deepest condolences to Sam and her family.
Love you Yvonne

I considered Yvonne a good friend and a great gal.We socialized with her and Sam over the years and I rode to work with her for many years and we had many good laughs together. You never had to wonder what Yvonne was thinking. She would let you know without hesitating.You would never find a more devoted wife,mother and grandmother. Lord have mercy on the person that messed with her kids or grandkids . I know she will be missed and our thoughts and prayers are with the family. Mike and Karen Thompson

Dear Family -
I am so sorry that I can't be there for the funeral with all of you for my favorite Chapman aunt.  I am so glad that Terry and I got to spend time with Yvonne last Saturday and to have many laughs.  She always was a "spark" to the party and you always knew when she was there.  God will surely have his hands full now.

God bless you, take care of Sam, and my thought, prayers and sympathy go out to you all.

We send our sincere sympathy to you all.
Richwood has lost a wonderful lady in Yvonne.
Going to ball games wonít be the same not seeing her sitting  in the gym cheering on the kidís and yes on occasion giving the refs a little heck for missing a good game.
Yvonne wasnít bashful about telling you how she felt about things and I loved and very much respected that about her.
Over the past 6 years there was never a time she didnít ask how Paula and the girls were doing as we go through our battle with cancer.
She was a very loving and caring lady.
Please know you all will be in our prayers. May the peace of God which surpasses all else surround you all at this very difficult time.
In Christ Love,
Jeff,Paula,Samantha, and Stephanie

I was so saddened to see that Yvonne had passed.  Losing a wife and mother is such a great loss.  We just lost Mom (Gert Sabins) in July and I miss her so much.
I have so many great memories with Yvonne - riding from Richwood to Scotts for many years with Mike Thompson, Mom and me.  She will be missed.  Please know, Sam, that you and your children and grandchildren are in my prayers.
