Yvonne was born Oct. 31, 1925, in Perry, Mo., to James Richard and Mary Ann Athey Newton.

She was married to William H. "Bill" Beaver on Feb. 9, 1947. He preceded her in death on March 4, 2011.

Survivors include two children, Amalie Perales (Ken) of Rosenberg, Texas, and Richard "Rick" Beaver of Mount Vernon, Ill.; two grandchildren, Lea Anne Stefan (Edward) and Richard Perales (Elizabeth); and five great-grandchildren, Matthew Stefan, Mark Stefan, Laura Stefan, Richard Perales and Emma Perales.

Yvonne was preceded in death by her parents; her brothers, William and Kenneth; and her husband.

Yvonne’s talent as a seamstress was so impeccable that many considered her creations works of art. Whether making alterations to men’s and women’s clothing or making clothing from scratch, Yvonne was a rare talent. 

Yvonne was a Godly woman and was a loyal and steadfast member of the Calvary Baptist Church in Hannibal, where she taught Sunday School for many years. Her membership wasn’t just something she did on Sundays, but rather a way of life. 

Memorial contributions may be made to Calvary Baptist Church.
