February 3, 1920 ~ July 9, 2006
Marion Blackie Yoklavich
Our beloved Mother died peacefully at home at the age of 86 on Sunday morning, July 9, 2006. Marion was born February 3, 1920, in Sharon, Pennsylvania. She is preceded in death by her husband of 55 years, Eugene "Pat" Yoklavich. Marion is survived by her 10 children: Patricia (Jerry), Susan (Paul), Mary (Jim), Barbara (Blaine), Michael (Debbie), Sarah (Bob), Laura (Tom), Dianne, Theresa (Tom) and Robert (Mary) and her 17 grandchildren; James, Christopher, Mary, Brian, David, Madeline, Patrick, Kathryn, Molly, Allison, Emily, Bryce, Ian, Matthew, Benjamin, Mikayla and Kieran. Marion and Pat were long time residents of Rancho Palos Verdes. Marion devoted her life to the care and well being of her large family; she loved them deeply and held them close throughout her life. She had a unique relationship with each grandchild who loved their "Nana" for her willingness to listen and her youthful outlook. Our Mom will be remembered for her intense strength of spirit, sense of humor, warm heart, and, of course, her bright blue eyes. We love you Mom and you will be in our hearts "Forever Young". Memorial service is on Friday, July 14 at 1:00 P.M. at St. John Fisher Church in Rancho Palos Verdes. In lieu of flowers, you can send donations to the Palos Verdes Peninsula Land Conservancy (http://www.pvplc.org/).
