Dorothea Yvonne Fansler

Dorothea Fansler


Yvonne Fansler joined her husband Norman, in heaven, Friday evening, November 15, 2013, after a year long illness. She was surrounded by loved ones and the care givers of Harborview Care Center.

Yvonne was born in Galveston, Texas; and lived there most of her life until she and Norman built their dream home in League City, TX. in 1986. She graduated from Ball High School in 1954. In her life she worked at American Indemnity, Sears Roebuck Co., The Kids Korner, and First Baptist Church in Galveston.

Yvonne was a friend to more people that we can count or keep up with. Her many friends can attest that she taught all of us how to have “good clean fun”, yet in all the fun, always led us back to Jesus Christ and His love for us.

Throughout her adult life, Yvonne was very involved in the Women’s Mission organization of the Southern Baptists on many different levels: local, state, National and International. She served on the executive board of the Women’s Mission of Texas for many years, until she was too sick to participate any longer.

She loved her family and adored her grandkids.

She will be sadly missed by her three daughters: Karen Hyatt and husband Paul; Diane Cook and husband Paul; Susan Clements and husband Tommy; Grandchildren: Kari Wagers and husband Andy; John Hyatt and wife LaShanda; Douglas Cook, Sarah Cook, Jeremy Clements and wife Kristen; Jordan Clements; Jonathan Clements; Kirstin Clements and Jase Clements. Great-grandchildren: Savon and Destiny Caldwell; and Dillon Wagers. Brother: Arnold Alois Gallway.

The family would like to extend their deepest appreciation to the staff of Harbor View Care Center who went above and beyond not only in caring for Yvonne, but also being her friend.
