Yvonne Lynn Richards was born on June 20, 1963 in Butte, MT and passed away on July 12, 2019 at St. Peter’s Hospital in Helena, MT. Yvonne valued and prioritized family for her entire life. In her younger years she identified and solidified this value by establishing very close family relationships. She loved to challenge her mother and always seek her comfort when she had a bump, booboo or wasn’t feeling well. Yvonne had a special closeness with her father where she felt safe and happy. She enjoyed teasing her siblings and never let a moment slip bye.
Yvonne is survived by her parents Bob and Barbara Richards, sister Martie (Brian) Simonson, brother R. Hoyt Richards, nieces Amanda Simonson, Mollie Simonson, Shannon (Sean) Schoenfelder, nephew Nathan (Blair) Simonson, Brendan Richards, and Toryn Richards, and great niece Keeley Simonson. Yvonne was preceded in death by her niece Jennifer Simonson.
Yvonne had special relations with two aunts, Bev Monahan and Kay Richards who never forgot her on her birthday and holidays.
