I thought the world of Yolanda. I knew her from Penney's and from when I was a nurse and took care of her husband. She was patient and kind and just plain lovely. So very sorry for her family. May Yolanda soar with the angels.

My brother, Philip and I met Yolanda when my family moved to the Greenwood area. She was in my brother's class at the Greenwoo school; her brother Phillip, was in my class. We rode the school bus to Seneca HS. We were fond of her parents, and her brother, Quentin, was in school with my sister, Sally. I want to emphasize the friendship we all shared. Our families were a part of all our lives; Nellie and Ezra Brown were kind friends to us.

I retired in 2015, after 50 years of teaching; Highland is about 25 west of St. Joseph; the only person left in my family is my brother Frank, who lives in Neosho, Mo, works at the Sheltered Workshop there.
