Yvonne Marie Bilbey was born Feb. 9, 1974 and passed peacefully Sept. 6, 2012. Awaiting her in Heaven were her grandparents Richard and Ruby Spark, James Sisk, and great grandparents Cecil and Mary Carter.
Yvonne was diagnosed at age 8 with type 1 diabetes, but she never let it slow her down. She was a member of the TUHS class of ’92, went to Lyle’s Beauty School, had numerous jobs from Mr. Burger to being a CNA, but her greatest “joy” in life was being “mommy”!
Unfortunately, the diabetes took a turn for the worse when her children were quite young and she began dialysis where she met her wonderful friends, Erma, Tammy, Gwen and Joe. She gave it a good long battle to create every precious memory she could with her children, over 10 years of treatment, before it finally took its toll.
She is survived by her children Emily Owens and Caleb Davis, mother Patty (Sisk) Wolfe, all of Taft. Uncle and Aunt Mike and Chris Sparks, cousins Mike, Ashley and Cassie Sparks, all of Paso Robles. Uncle Clarence Sisk of LA. Cousins Clare (Sisk) Clements and Valerie Sisk, both of San Diego. Long time friends Rhonda Grassie, Erica Brady and Erik Goodman, and her best friend forever Karlee McNew. Gone, but never forgotten.
Services for Yvonne will be at Westside Believers on Wednesday, September 26, 2012 at 1pm.
