Yolie enjoyed painting, running 5K races, and exercising with her coworkers. She was a master organizer. Everything had its place. She loved to sing in church and play her tambourine. She was so skilled at playing the tambourine that once after church a man came up and asked her if she had a masters degree in tambourining. Most of all she loved her God and always placed him first in her life. She loved people and wanted to know about every little detail of their life. She celebrated with you in victories and cried with you when life got hard. Her favorite TV show of all time was Little House on the Prairie. She would call Shannon her Charles Engles, whom she had had a crush on since she was just a little girl. She obviously had a vivid imagination also! She loved deeply, laughed loudly, and worshiped her Jesus whole heartedly. She was a loyal friend and companion.
