Yvonne Marie Allen
December 24, 2013
Yvonne Marie Allen, a lifelong resident of Issaquah, died peacefully Sunday, Dec. 15, 2013.
She is survived by her husband of 47 years, Stuart Allen; mother Arlene Durand; brother Dean Durand; her six children, Corey, Sabrina, Desiree, Brett, Deann and Shawn; five grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
Yvonne enjoyed camping and reading, and was an avid bowler. You could often find Yvonne sitting on her deck, watching hummingbirds. She was a sports enthusiast and could be heard above the crowd.
She was a proud woman of incredible strength, joy and generosity. As a homemaker, she provided a home full of love. In her words, her greatest success was “her children.”
