She worked so hard all her life. She was a retired dairy farmer then retired from raising beef cattle. She loved her vegetable garden. She maintained a full pantry of home canned fruits and vegetables. She also filled a freezer with her harvests. She always had plenty of colorful blooming plants around the house. She also loved working with animals. It was really hard for her to give up her chickens a few years ago. She was devoted to her dogs. She had Dobermans since 1980. She loved them and kept them as inside/outside pets. For the last few years, she meticulously worked on her coloring books. She loved to watch the birds at the feeders. She also had many african violets and thoroughly enjoyed them.
After a fall in late 2019, she was faithful in working on her rehab exercises and tried to stay active to the end of her life. She was able to stay in her home to the end of her life.
Yvonne is survived by her two daughters, Deborah Potter of Vermont, and Rebecca Dunn of Muldrow, Oklahoma.
Yvonne was predeceased by her husband, Jessie James Dunn and her brother, Perry Boyd.
The personal distancing requirements have, of course, altered the funeral plans. She will have a private burial at Sehorn Cemetery. The memorial will be at St. John’s Episcopal Church in Fort Smith, Arkansas in the Fall once we are able to gather again. Arrangements are being entrusted to the Heritage Memorial Funeral Home in Waldron, Arkansas.
