Charlene And Family

Yolanda was one of our most loved people in our lives for 50 years. We were lucky in that she and Joe welcomed Antonio into their home when he first came to the United States. When our son, Anthony was born, she became his godmother.
We stayed in touch over the many years and I was able to visit her in 2014. Her last visit to Costa Rica was such a happy time for her. The photos of her with the family show how content she was.
Her family was everything to her and she always was a devoted wife and mother. We will miss her.
Our love to all the family,
Charlene, Anthony and Jeannette

Sorry for your loss. I met and worked with Yolanda at Palm Beach Gardens Elementary, she was such a sweet lady. I would see her at Mass at St. Clare’s and she always had a smile on her face.

Memories so many. But from the past years I took her to the Palm Beach Christmas Boat Parade!! She really enjoyed that special moment and the beautiful show of the boats with Christmas lights decoration. And of course going to La Bamba and have a Strawberry Margarita!
Another great memory: I took her and my mom to Siesta Key.
I told her: On this trip you both can not complaint about any pain or health issues. We are going to have fun! Tia did not complain for the full trip and they really enjoyed it!!! We took so many pictures ❤️ We will miss you!

So very sad to learn of Yolanda’s passing. From the time we moved into the neighborhood, she was warm and welcoming. She was a lovely person in every way and our little neighborhood will be less bright without her. My deepest sympathy to the entire family.
