Yvonne Raymonde Redden
December 14, 1924 – May 11, 2020
Yvonne Raymonde Redden, 95, passed away on May 11, 2020 at Palm Bay Memory Care in Palm Bay, Florida.
Yvonne was born in Chartres, France on December 14, 1924 to Jules Porc and Marte Benoist. She met the love of her life, Harper Tom Redden in Paris, France. Tom was stationed at the American Embassy in Paris when he and Yvonne had a chance meeting at a sidewalk café. They fell in love and married in 1952. He preceded her in death in April of 2016.
Yvonne was a devoted wife who supported her Marine while he served overseas and then as a Washington, D.C. police officer. Yvonne loved gardening and worked tirelessly to keep a beautiful yard filled with lovely plants and flowers. A loyal Walmart employee for many years, people recognized Yvonne long after she retired. Folks would come up to her and say, “Don’t I know you from somewhere?’ to which she would reply, “Welcome to Walmart!” They would immediately remember her as the friendly Palm Bay Walmart greeter.
Yvonne is survived by family in Pennsylvania and Paris, France.
A memorial service honoring Yvonne’s life will be held at a later date.
