April 4, 1960 — January 19, 2023

Yvonne was born in Rockford, IL on April 4, 1960, daughter of Robert Okas and Norma (Nelson) Pottorff. She graduated from Reed-Custer High School in Braidwood, IL.

She was excited to have recently joined the Lyran Society. Yvonne loved to be the “crazy cat lady.” She was always the life of the party.
