It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Yvonne Overholt, on Monday, November 2, 2020. Yvonne was predeceased by the love of her life and soul mate, Phil (2004), and after almost 17 years, they are finally reunited. Along with being a woman of incredible faith, mom was an avid canner, loved to cook, quilt and knit. She is survived by her children Barry and Karen Overholt of Exeter, Sandy and Joe Overholt of London, Nancy Becker and Brian Klooster of Waterdown, and Dwayne and Jodi Overholt of Exeter. Mom was graced with having 10 beautiful grandchildren: Ashley Brooks and Mike, Magen Overholt, Scott Overholt and Emily; Melanie Fitzgerald, Stacey Connors and Jeff, Candace Becker-Soudant and Mark, Breanne Becker, Alyssa Becker; Tyler Overholt, Nick Overholt and Karissa. She was also very blessed to have 11 great-grandchildren whom she loved dearly.
