Our family sends the Achatz family our heartfelt condolences on the loss of your beloved Yvonne. My mom, Vivian, especially remembers her from years spent at Sacred Heart as parents and church-goers. A few years ago, Yvonne dropped by to give my folks a Christmas basket from the Elks. My mom fondly remembers that they had such a nice visit. She will be missed.
Our sympathies,
Vivian Pearce, Dianna Pearce-Fitzsimmons, Janine L. Pearce-Vasquez, Cheryl Pearce-Trujillo, Mike Pearce

I did not know Yvonne, and, had hoped to meet her. She was Eugene and Phyllis Ward's neighbor, and, following Phyllis' death, she
was a special help to Eugene. More recently she was especially helpful when he was hospitalized in Denver. Family, I know you will
so appreciate the legacy she leaves. My sincere condolences, Harriet DeFreece
