Harry W. Yenner
April 7, 1920 – June 21, 2018
Mr. Harry W. Yenner, age 98 of Wilmington went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, June 21, 2018. He was born April 7, 1920 in Hopewell, New Jersey to Harry Yenner and Etta Bowers Yenner, both deceased. He was preceded in death by his wife, Jean Kenmore Yenner, in 2017.
Harry was a World War II veteran, a lifetime member with the American Legion Post 129, and was actively involved in the Katie B. Hines Senior Center since its origination. Harry moved to Carolina Beach, NC in 1981 because of how much it reminded him of the Jersey shore, and loved it as much as he loved the friends he made here. Whether it was attending the Fish Fry at the American Legion or playing cards and line dancing at the Katie B. Hines Senior Center, he continuously showed his support and enjoyed every minute of it.
He is survived by his daughters, Marie Mauro of Sicklerville, NJ, and Diann Burkhardt (Gerald) of Carolina Beach and son, Wayne Yenner of Wilmington, as well as eight grandchildren: Donna Mauro and John (Jennifer) of Sicklerville, NJ, Phil (Luz) Mauro of GA, Whitney Yenner of Leland, Christopher Burkhardt and Julie Burkhardt, both of Charleston, SC and Jason (Crystal) Burkhardt and Courtney Burkhardt, both of Wilmington and five great-grandchildren: Olivia, Isabella, and Natalia Mauro, Axton Burkhardt and Kimbrel Lunsford.
The family will receive friends from 7PM until 8PM on Wednesday June 27, 2018 at Coble Ward-Smith Funeral and Cremation Service. The Funeral Service will be held at 11AM on Thursday, June 28, 2018 at Coble Ward-Smith Funeral and Cremation Service with assistance from the American Legion Post 129. Burial will follow at Oleander Memorial Gardens.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Legion Post 129 or the Katie B. Hines Senior Center.
