Oct. 1, 1935-April 10, 2014

Wanda Evonne Yonke, 78, Almond, died on Thursday, April 10, 2014 at St. Michael’s Hospital, Stevens Point. She was born on Oct. 1, 1935 in Plainfield to Raymond and Lillian (Peterson) Crawford. On June 4, 1955 Wanda married Leland Yonke at the United Methodist Church, Plainfield. Wanda loved spending time with her family, playing lottery scratch-offs, Sunday polkas, completing word searches and gardening. As little, soft spoken and tiny as Wanda was, she was a true fighter through her three time battle with cancer, each time taking each day in stride. Wanda was a very proud member of the American Legion Auxiliary. She especially looked forward to the annual auxiliary bowling tournaments with her daughters and granddaughters. Wanda will be sadly missed by her family and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband: Leland Yonke on Dec. 22, 1991 and one sister.
