Fay Yvonne Speed, 89, of Houston, Texas passed into eternal rest on Monday, January 28, 2019.

Yvonne was the cherished mother of two daughters, grandmother of 5 granddaughters, and great-grandmother of 2 great-granddaughters.

Yvonne displayed an inner strength and determination much larger than her petite stature.

She was lovingly referred to as their "Steel Magnolia" by her family.

Yvonne was preceded in death by Raymond Speed, her husband, her parents, Nellie Fay and Harvey Horace Morris, her elder brother, Harvey Edward "Bo" Morris, and her younger sister, Bessie Mae "Bet" Morris.

I don't know where I ever came up with the name Bonbon. But everyone sure knew who I was talking about when I said that name. I remember all the fun times I had at your house wether it be Christmas break spring break or summer break. You always made sure I never got board. Those memories will live on forever. Lots of laughs and plenty of punishment. I love you so much. I am sure Uncle Ray, Grandma Bet, Uncle Bo nannie and grand daddy are so happy to have you home. Fly high with those beautiful wings. See you when I get there.

I was a flower girl in Aunt Yvonne and Uncle Ray's wedding. I was so excited. They were two of the most loving and caring people. During my high school years I lived with Aunt Yvonne and Uncle Ray for about 6 months. I helped with Debra and Julia and loved every minute of my time with them. Uncle Ray would take Aunt Yvonne out every Friday night, just the two of them for dinner and I would stay with girls. Although they were not into public show of affection with each other they had total commitment to each other and there was much love in that house. One of my treasured memories.
