If it weren’t for my dear Aunt Yvonne, we would not have been blessed to be able to adopt my son, in 1982. She always had a big heart, and she took in a friend of her daughter, Cynthia. The woman had lost her job, was 7 months pregnant, living in her car, and the car was being repossessed because she couldn’t afford the payments. She told us that she was raped. She didn’t know who the Father was and told my Aunt that she never wanted any children, and that she was just going to leave the baby at the hospital. Since she told my Aunt, that she asked if she would consider allowing her niece and her husband to adopt the baby. She agreed. We paid all her medical expenses, and she kept her word, and allowed us to adopt him. God blessed me with a good-hearted Aunt, who tried to help others. And…a beautiful baby boy.
Poor Aunt Yvonne suffered from Alzheimer’s Disease in the last few years of her life. She resided with her son Edward Harry Levesque in Houston, TX up until he could no longer care for her, and she was moved to Garden Terrace Alzheimer’s Center in Houston, Texas.

Six children together: Joseph Lee, Phyllis Jean, Sally Ann, Karl Thomas, Patricia Marie, and Sarah Kay Frederick.Mother was a very loving and creative woman. She taught me how to sew at 16, she made us a braided rug, she knitted, crocheted, needlepointed, and quilted.

Second husband Louis “Honey Lou” Clifford Mancill. Married 5 December 1968, Houston, Texas. Our Mancill homestead was at 11039 Lafferty Oaks St, Houston, Texas. My Mother and Dad made our house a home. We celebrated many a birthday, and all holidays at this home, at 11039 Lafferty Oaks St., in Houston, Texas.

He preceded her in death. No children of this union. One step son, Michieal Wayne Mancill. She was the life of the party. My Dad sang and played the guitar for her. She lived, she laughed and she loved. Lou called her his “satan pussycat”, and the “princess and the pea”. She was spoiled by my Dad. They spoiled each other. They were each other’s best friend. They were deeply in love.

Mother passed away at home surrounded with family that loved her. She just drifted off, and the angels came to get her. We believe that the week before, she had some mini strokes, because after that she could not speak and was bed ridden. My consolation was she was not in pain, and not alone, and I was able to be there with her for her last six years of her life.

Mother just passed today, Friday, March 9, 2012, in Rosharon, Texas. She left us peacefully to be with Jesus. I am so grateful to have been able to spend the last six years living together with Mother. We got to be even closer than ever.

She was blessed with a good life, and a good family. She really was always there with all of us six children, up until the last week of her life. She fell on Monday, and we think she had a mini stroke, she never was able to speak clearly after that. She passed away on Friday afternoon, in her sleep.

Mother told us that she did not want to go, but she left us just like she wanted to. She had dignity and respect from all who knew her. Everyone who knew her loved her. She was a very giving person, and always was there for her six children.Our family was a very loving, close-knit family.

Burial followed at the same Oaklawn Cemetery, where Aunt Yvonne Linderman (Levesque), Uncle Kenneth Jackson, and Aunt Yvarra “Billie” Linderman (Jackson) are buried.

Mother’s viewing was held on Monday, March 12, 2012 from 4-9pm. The funeral services were on Tuesday, March 13, 2012 @11am @ Oaklawn Cemetery Pavilion, on Hwy. 36 in Somerville, TX. location at:, Strickland Funeral Home at 545 8th Street, SOMERVILLE, TEXAS 77879, (979)596-2133.
