Yvonne Thompson, Takoja HoWaste Win “Granddaughter With A Good Voice” was born on June 1, 1952 at Fort Totten, ND and passed from this earthly life on Wednesday, April 12, 2023 at her home surrounded by loving and precious family and friends.
Yvonne was a classy simple woman who was proud of being a grandma. She had many hobbies, she liked to challenge herself with crossword puzzles and she had many dictionaries in her house to assist. She cared for plants and for animals, mainly cats, she loved her precious Lucielle who lived to be about thirty years old. She was known for her color coordination with her Star Quilts. She was a charismatic woman who enjoyed getting to know people, if you got to know her you had a friend for life. She kept herself busy with her worklife, hobbies, and then of course she had a bingo dauber collection and an array of casino club cards she acquired throughout the years. She also had an awesomely delicious recipe for juneberry pudding along with her frybread.
Yvonne enjoyed her life, she lived it to the fullest, she liked to travel to many rummages and casinos, she enjoyed watching “those darn Viking’s”, actually any sport her son Jason would be interested in; she was a one of kind person and when she got sick she made a plan to fight her sickness but these last few months she asked her older granddaughters to write about her when she passed away.
From Neela: My Grandma was the absolute best grandma in this world, she meant a lot to everyone. She had the most caring heart and soul anyone could have and I looked up to her so much and I love her more than anything. I’ll miss all the fun days I’d have with her and how she would always make me laugh or make me smile when I’m having a bad day. I’d always count on her for many things and she would be there. That’s the type of person grandma was, a kind, charismatic, strong, intelligent, funny, crazy, thoughtful, loving, and overall an amazing grandma.
From Tayia: Grandma, the name I’ll always wish to call again. The one person who you could count on for anything was always grandma. She never failed at showing how much she loved us and how proud she was always. Everyone that has talked to me has shown that as well “she always talked about you kids and her cats.” My grandma is proud to have her grandchildren and always will be but we were even more proud to call her the name grandma.
