 “My dear wonderful sister Yvonne passed away this evening (Dec. 7, 2009) at about 5:45PM. She passed peacefully, surrounded by all of her family, mom, siblings and spouses. I read the passage “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying. Everyone who lives in me and believes in me will never ever die." Then we prayed and thanked God for the gift that she has been to all of us and rejoiced that she is now completely healed and soaring in the presence of God, reunited with my dad and other loved ones who have gone ahead.” (From Steve Cadd ‘72)

From Yvonne’s mom, Helen Cadd: “Yvonne died as she had lived, with her loving family surrounding her, crying and laughing, singing, and praying together. Cancer took her from us on December 7, 2009, after only 53 years here, but no one could take our memories of her generosity, her kind heart and sweet spirit,her sparkle and wit, her beautiful smile and brilliant red hair. During her career as a nurse, Yvonne and Walt went to the Philippines where she worked for two years providing nursing care to low-income families and jail inmates. Back in the U.S. Yvonne worked in both gynecology and general practice clinics. Yvonne’s positive outlook on life would turn any situation into an adventure. Her love of travel took her on many trips around the world. Her life was a clear reflection of her love for God and it was her highest goal that God would be glorified in and through her. For all who knew her, this goal was resoundingly achieved. Yvonne and Walt have 3 daughters (two who graduated from Faith Academy), one grandson and one grand-daughter who was born after Yvonne went to be with Jesus.”
