Yvonne was born May 25, 1939, in Coopersville, Mich., to Oren and Ella Jubb. She graduated from Coopersville High School in 1957 and attended Muskegon Business College. She married William Olah on May 10, 1969. Yvonne’s life-long passion for animals led her to a career as a veterinary technician for 17 years. After retiring to Florida, she served on the Board of Directors for CHAPS (Charlotte HIV/AIDS People Support).
Yvonne enjoyed animals, shopping, decorating, crafts, sports and, above all, her family. She loved attending school activities involving her children and grandchildren.
A Celebration of Life is scheduled for 1 p.m. May 13, 2017, at Terra Verde, 11741 Leonard Road, Nunica, Mich. All are welcome to attend and celebrate Yvonne’s life. William’s brother, the Rev. James Olah, will officiate the interment for family members and close friends at Nunica Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in memory of Yvonne may be made to CHAPS, Tidewell Hospice House or the Humane Society. The family would like to thank Fawcett Memorial Hospital and Tidewell Hospice House for their care and support.
