Yvonne Belloit George

October 19, 1928September 22, 2020

Yvonne Belloit George passed away peacefully early Tuesday morning, September 22, 2020, surrounded by her children. The daughter of John and Annie Belloit, Yvonne was a native and life long resident of Jacksonville, Florida.

She worshipped in the San Jose congregation of Jehovah’s Witnesses.

Yvonne was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She was preceded in death by her parents, Edward K. George her husband of 52 years, her sister Florine Catanzaro, her brother John Belloit Jr. She is survived by three children, Edward K. George Jr (Cheri), Kim George and Kelly Burnett (Mike), her sister Nadine Garrett, brother Don Belloit, five grandchildren Jacob and Micah George, Jack Burnett, Michael and Charlie Burnett and many nieces and nephews and friends that she loved and cherished very much. As a young woman, she had an active social life and belonged to The Sabenettes of Jacksonville.

She was the epitome of grace and dignity and known for her flair for fashion and design. She was an avid gardener and loved clipping from her garden to create floral arrangements. In fact, the only year she was a member of the Garden Club of Jacksonville, she won “Best In Show” for her floral arrangement. Another favorite pastime was playing bridge with the best of her friends or shopping and laughing with cousin Delores Jabour. As a business woman she was owner of The Bath and Linen Shoppe and a tireless worker with many of her customers becoming friends who came in to socialize and visit with her. Yvonne was not only a lover of the arts, well known in the arts community but also a talented artist herself.

A memorial services will be private. Pallbearers, Jacob and Micah George, Michael Jr, Charlie and Jack Burnnet and Shannon Hughes.

To the George family,

We were so sorry to hear of Yvonne's passing. We were two of Yvonne's many customers who adored her company, talent and advice. It was so easy to just drop in The Bath and Linen Shop and say hello or share a bite to eat. We still have many of the beautiful things in our home that Yvonne selected for us. She was a very special lady and we will miss her.

When we moved into the area Yvonne took me under her wing & I learned a lot from her
She was a generous, kind & loyal friend to my family & we will never forget her love toward us
One of my favorite things about Yvonne was that she saw beauty in natural things
She could take something out of her backyard yard & create an exquisite centerpiece from it
She was awed by the “Great Designer” & she shared that with others

My condolences to the entire family. I met Yvonne when I was a teen and always thought she was beautiful and just so nice. Later, I would shop at The bath and Linen and hang around chatting with Yvonne and Eddie. Blessings to all during this difficult time.

Such a sweet and gracious lady. She would always say "I will have you and John over for dinner". In the new system we will get to do this.
