Share This Obituary
Constance Yvonne Bennett 86 passed away Tuesday morning November 29th 2016 at Sacred Heart Hospital in Miramar Beach Florida after a short illness.
Although her first name was Constance she preferred to use her middle name so throughout her life she was known as Yvonne. She is survived by her daughter JoDell Haverfield of Miramar Beach Florida and her sister Darlene Morgan of Bigfork Montana as well as 11 grandchildren, 33 great grandchildren and many other extended family. Yvonne was preceded in death by her daughter Janet Mason.
Yvonne was born August 25, 1930 in Alpine Texas. She was raised in Texas and Los Cruces New Mexico. Travel was one of her loves and she was blessed throughout her life to live in many beautiful places from Coast to Coast including Hawaii, Key West FL, California, Oregon, Seattle, and the Rocky Mountains of Salt Lake City UT and Missoula Montana. In 2008 she settled in Miramar Beach FL . She often said Florida was her favorite state as she loved the beach, the sunsets, the sound of the waves and the warm sunny weather.
Even though Yvonne was a trained Nurse, for most of her life it was not necessary for her to work so she was able to pursue her talent as an artist. She loved to paint or draw portraits, flowers, seascapes and landscapes. She was also very skilled in the art of crochet. She loved teaching and sharing her talents with others including her great granddaughters. Her art work and crochet pieces are used or displayed in homes of family and friends throughout the country.
Even though she will be missed, her family is comforted to know she is now reunited with her daughter, Janet and countless loved ones who have been waiting for her.
Her family would like to thank the ER and ICU staff at Sacred Heart Hospital of Miramar Beach for their very kind and caring support.
Emerald Coast Funeral Home, Yvonne's family and the LDS Sandestin Ward will be handling the arrangements.
There will be a private memorial service at Gulf Cemetery in Santa Rosa Beach, the date is still to be determined but will be posted on facebook and www.mclaughlintwincities.com.
A final tribute to Yvonne will be posted on the facebook of JoDell Haverfield.
