I loved visiting Yula and mom at Beautiful Savior. She loved when I brought Wyatt to visit. Mom enjoyed having her for a roommate so very much. They were a good pair. Prayers for the family from Esther Joyal and Joyce (Joyal) Moretina, and much love from Wyatt for the 'Nila wafers!

I smile just thinking of Yula! She was so spunky and if you listen close you would hear her funny smart remarks and a giggle. She reminded me of my Grandma who passed many years before, especially when she was signing a line or two. It was comforting to me, even though she never knew. I would like to think she's laughing and singing in the heavens, sharing her kind sole with all!
My live and sympathy for my dear friend Nancy and her family. Sending hugs!
Love, Lorinda, Bob and Robert

Yula was one of the sweetest and most caring woman I have ever known. She always had a calmness about her, which in turn put you in a state of calmness. She will be missed dearly.

One of my fondest memories of Yula was hearing her sing. I would be playing with Nancy, and Yula would be singing while she was cleaning or cooking. She had the most beautiful voice. And her cooking! She was, without a doubt, one of the best cooks I've ever had the pleasure of sharing a meal with! Yula, you are loved by so many, and you'll be missed more than you'll ever know.

Thoughts and prayers for the family of Yula. Rest in Peace Yula. I remember us working together at Johnson school when our sons were friends and going to elementary school. (Jeff Bradshaw and Jeff Davolt). Also remember daughters Nancy and Barbara. Always much fun to be around. Then I kind of lost track when 107th St. set the boundaries for Jr. High and High School. But glad the guys kept in contact. Yula was always fun to be around and loved her family much. Always sad when you loose contact with those you worked with and became friends. My loving thoughts to the famliy. Jennifer (my daughter) also remembers the family. I know she will be missed. Lee (Davolt) Gibson.
