Yvonne J. Smith, 66 of Dover died Thursday, January 30, 2020, in Mercy Hospital at Canton following a brief illness.

Born at Dover, Ohio on November 3, 1953, Yvonne was a daughter of the late Vey and Geraldine Smith.

She was a 1972 graduate of Strasburg-Franklin High School and worked for many years as an LPN and for Wherley Optical.

Yvonne was a feisty, lovable soul who never met a stranger. She often quipped the only three things she needed in life were her dogs, television and food.

She was a deeply devoted mother to her children, Abby Lee, Mandy Lee, and Teddy (Emily Hughes) Snyder and was the beloved grandmother to Julian and dog mom to Pixie, Daisy and Skippy.

In keeping with Yvonne’s wishes there will be no services. Cremation care will be conducted through the care of the Geib Funeral Center at Dover.

The family requests memorial contributions in Yvonne’s name be given in the form of a monetary donation or supplies to the Tuscarawas County Humane Society, 1432 Tall Timber Rd NE, New Philadelphia, Ohio 44663.

I worked with Yvonne and Abby at Wherleys. They were so much fun to work with and always made everyone laugh around them! One day Abby came back from lunch and walked up to Yvonne. She began rubbing her stomach and said "Mom, there is something I need to tell you....." Yvonne laughed so hard and so did everyone else. I have so many good memories of her! She will be missed!

Perhaps they are not the stars in the sky, but rather openings in Heaven where the love of our lost ones shine down to let us know they are still with us.
