Yvonne Norisa Post, R. N., 94, of Stevensville went home to be with her Lord and Savior on June 1, 2020 at the Hanson Hospice Center in Stevensville.

“He will give you victory. He will rejoice over you in great gladness. Is that a joyous choir I hear? No, it is the Lord exulting over you in a happy song.” Zeb. 3” 17-18 And with those words, Yvonne entered Heaven.
Arrangements are entrusted to Starks & Menchinger Chapel.

A Graveside Service will be held 11:00 A.M., Saturday, June 6, 2020 at North Shore Memory Gardens in Coloma with Pastor Bob Confer officiating.

Yvonne was born August 12, 1925, at home in Benton Harbor, Michigan, to James and Laurel (Badgley) Poziwilko. On May 16, 1948 she married Duane Post. Yvonne graduated from Benton Harbor High School in 1942 at the age of 16 years old. In 1946 she graduated from Wayne State University of Nursing, under the Cadet Nursing program. She began & ended her nursing career at Mercy, Memorial, and Lakeland Hospitals. Yvonne retired at the age of 84 after 55 plus years as House Supervisor. She loved her “Hospital Family”. Until her dying days, just the mention of how to start an IV would make her eyes sparkle.

Yvonne is survived by her children: Ted (Diana) Post, Jill Post, Diane (Gil) Rau. Her beloved Grandchildren: Tara (Jed) Reinhardt and Doug (Sarah) Rau. Her deeply loved Great-grandchildren: Jaxon & Avery Reinhardt, Luke, Jordan, Adrianna, and Josiah Rau.

Yvonne was preceded in death by her husband, Duane, in 1986. Brothers: Donald and Robert Poziwilko.
The family truly appreciates the dedicated & compassionate care given to Yvonne by the entire staff of the Hanson Hospice Center.

When you remember Yvonne, do it with a kind deed and always doing your best with a positive attitude.
“Well Done Yvonne, My Good & Faithful Servant.” Matt. 25:21

Diane, Jill, and Ted....I was sad to hear the news of your mom’s passing. I have so many fond memories of being next door at Gaga and Hank’s, and spending time with you at either house, having fun. We were warned so many times to stay off that BIG stone wall in your yard, which in reality is not big, but it seemed like it back then! Luckily there were a few times we climbed it without being caught! I remember having to be quiet if we went in the house because your mom was sleeping, having worked the night before. She was always so nice to us, and you all were the best neighbors to Gaga and Hank. She was well revered in her work, mentoring many in their nursing careers, my daughter included. I join you in your sadness, and know someday you will all be together again. Laurie Hafer Baldwin
