Yvonne had a strong faith and was proud to be a member of the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah's Witnesses in Pinehurst, Idaho. She was also a wonderful cook and baker. In her free time, she loved nothing more than spending time with her family.

She is also survived by her siblings, John Travis, Linda Miller and Reggie Travis; and numerous nieces and nephews. Yvonne was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Wesley; her son, Michael Perkins; and her siblings, Jerry Travis, Loretta Fausett, Judy Flather and Herb Travis.
