Obituary

Yvonne C. Mullin

May 20, 1925 – October 1, 2020

 

Yvonne Claire Mullin, age 95 of Monroe, went home to be with the Lord on Thursday, October 1, 2020 from complications following surgery at Toledo Hospital in Toledo, Ohio. She had been under the care of hospice since August 2020.

 

Yvonne or also known as “Vonnie” was born on May 20, 1925 in Monroe. She was the daughter of the late Cornelius and Clara (Zimmerman) McInnis. She was baptized and confirmed at St. Johns Catholic Church in Monroe where she attended grade school. Vonnie also attended St. Mary’s Academy and graduated with the class of 1943. After graduating, she worked as a Secretary at the Monroe Auto Equipment Company, now called Tenneco.

 

In 1947, Yvonne married the love of her life: Joseph H. Mullin. They raised a family of five children and celebrated 25 wonderful years together before Joe’s passing in 1976.

 

For many years, Vonnie was a loving homemaker to her husband and children. She later took a job with the Monroe Cooperative Extension Service, where she was the Office Manager until her retirement in 1987.

 

Yvonne was a strong Christian woman who was a long-time member of St. Michaels Catholic Church of Monroe. She also participated in being a member of the church Altar Society, their choir, St. Vincent De Paul Society, and as a Eucharistic Minister.

 

Past times included working in her garden. She loved flowers and in particular; lilies, roses, and scented geraniums were her favorite. She was a life long avid reader (like her father), her favorite writer being Thomas Merton- a Trappist Monk. Vonnie was also highly creative person who wrote poetry, painted landscapes, was a gifted seamstress, and enjoyed knitting and crocheting.

 

Yvonne had always possessed a strong and amazing faith. She had an exceptional artistic spirt and a beautiful nurturing heart. She was a loving daughter, wife, mother, and grandmother. Vonne will be deeply missed and cherished in the hearts of her loved ones.

 

During the last summer of her life, Yvonne, an only child, often said “the only thing she wanted all her life was children-and a family of her own.” She was grateful to God for blessing her with all she had wanted and more.
