Yvonne M. Condon
November 14, 1935 – August 22, 2019
Yvonne Condon, fortified with the Sacraments of Holy Mother Church, passed away peacefully on Thursday August 22, 2019.
Yvonne was the cherished daughter of the late Thomas M. and Mary (nee' McCaffrey) Condon; dear sister of Kevin (Joanne) Condon, and the late Col. Kathleen Condon USANC; dear aunt of Eileen (Steve) Meyer, Kevin P. (Jennifer) Condon, Kathy (Fred) Condon-Boettcher, and Michael (Mary Jo) Condon; great-aunt of Elisabeth Condon, Kathleen V. Condon, Elias Meyer, Christopher Condon, and Andrew Condon; and a dear friend to so many.
Yvonne was an historian and lecturer with the Missouri Historical Society, and formerly a teacher at St. Mark's High School and Mary Queen of Peace grade school. She was a proud lifelong resident of the City of St. Louis and never had any intention of leaving the city. After retiring, Yvonne traveled worldwide with her sister, Kathleen who operated a travel agency out of San Antonio Texas, visiting Russia, China, Asia, Europe, and everywhere in between. Yvonne was surrounded by a special group of high school classmates who, since 1954, have met once a month without fail. They are a gracious group of ladies.
The family wishes to thank the good people at The Sheridan at Creve Coeur and Serenity Home Hospice for their extraordinary care and kind treatment to Yvonne.

I had Miss Condon for a teacher at SMH. She touched many lives. I remember her erasing the blackboard with the side of her hand. I have many memories of her. Glad she had an exciting life teaching, traveling, etc. God bless you, Miss Condon. Rest in peace.

I am so sorry to hear of Yvonne's passing. I enjoyed working with her at MHS. I also appreciated her kindness to my daughter Becky when she volunteered in the Education dept.

I have special memories of Yvonne from the many Condon Thanksgiving dinners shared with her. The conversations regarding her life's work and travels, told with her wonderful sense of humor, were delightful. She touched many lives and will be missed! My sympathies to her entire family and friends.

She was a very important person in my family's life. My friends and I enjoyed her sense of humor and her way of life. We will miss her.
She was my "little sister" at Webster College. I enjoyed every minute of our lengthy relationship.
