Yvonne Rae Nelson

January 18, 1938 ~ June 4, 2022


Our beloved wife, mother, and grandmother, Yvonne Rae Nelson passed away Saturday, June 4, 2022 in Tucson, Arizona.


She was born January 18, 1938 in Clay Center, Nebraska to Wyman and Goldie McLaughlin.


On July 3, 1955, Yvonne married Daryl Nelson. Together they had three daughters and two sons. In November 1965 the family moved to Utah.


She was a wonderful homemaker. She loved to cook and sew and take an occasional trip to a casino. She spent countless hours caring for others and taking care of their needs before her own. In their later years she and Daryl enjoyed spending their winters in sunny Arizona.


Yvonne is survived by her husband, children, LyDonna (Fred) Stimpson, Roy, UT; Sherri (Stan) Arnold, Roy, UT; Richard (Marcia) Nelson, St. George, UT; Jerry (Kimberly) Nelson, Syracuse, UT;  and Penny (Jim) Bishop, Tucson, AZ;  14 grandchildren, 20 great-grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents and one grandchild.


Life does not hold enough years in which we can repay our mothers love.


The family held a private graveside service at the West Point Cemetery, West Point, Utah.
