Obituary For Donna Rae Yeo
Donna R. Yeo of Jenison, Michigan, age 78, went to be with her Lord and Savior on July 14, 2021. Donna was born on May 20, 1943 in Titonka, Iowa to Harm and Aletta (Meyer) Eden.
She was a loving wife and mother of three. She loved children and chose to spend her time teaching and nurturing them. She was an elementary school teacher prior to getting married. After she got married, she taught Sunday school, ran an after school care program, substitute taught and volunteered as a teacher’s aid at the Potters House.
It was important for her to share her love for Jesus and she demonstrated His grace and love to those she met, especially little ones.
She sacrificially loved and served her husband and children. She was happily married for almost 52 years and she championed her three children and their families. All were blessed by her kindness, patience and her smile.
She is survived by her husband Gerald Yeo, her daughter Karen Johnson (Daniel), her daughter Karla Wagner (Nathan), her son Andrew Yeo (Alison), her brother Harvey Eden (Donna), her brother Arnie Eden (Nancy) and her sister-in-law Judy Eden. She is also loved and remembered by 8 grandchildren; Rachel, Levi, Brienna, Gabriel, Logan, Kylee, Eli, and Micah.
She was preceded in death by her father and mother, her sister Irma Alphs (Don), her sister Joann Eden, her brother James Eden, and her grandson Anthony Johnson.
A celebration of her life will be held at 11:00 am on July 20, 2021 at Jenison Bible Church 6360 14th Ave, Hudsonville MI 49426 with a fellowship luncheon to follow. There will be a time of visitation on July 19, 2021 from 6pm – 8:30pm and an hour preceding the celebration of her life.
The family suggests memorial contributions be given in Donna’s name to Faith Hospice.
