Yvonne Zubrod, 80, of Spearfish, passed away peacefully on November 14, 2017 at Rapid City Regional Hospital.

Yvonne began her life on October 4, 1937 in McIntosh, SD, with parents, Charles and Della Hare. On September 11, 1954, Yvonne married the love of her life, Meryle, in Watauga, SD. In 1956, Meryle was drafted into the US Army, which took them to live in Germany for two years while he served. After he was honorably discharged they moved to Rapid City, SD where they were blessed with two children, Rita and Steve. Yvonne was employed at Black Hills Gold, Sears and worked for the Rapid City School District in the cafeteria. Later, Meryle went to work for Big D Oil Company, where she remained by his side working, until they retired. After retirement you could always find her helping out at her daughter Rita’s Daycare, joining Meryle in fishing trips, and staying busy with her family, never slowing down. As a family, they settled in Spearfish, SD, where their family continues to live.

Yvonne was the type of woman that wore her heart on her sleeve and cared deeply about all of those that were a part of her life, whether they were family, friends, or just someone in need of a helping hand and a good lesson. She enjoyed being the matriarch of her family and took care of her grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, up until her last days. She enjoyed concerts, shopping, vacations, and never lost her love for cooking and baking. Holidays were here time to shine, as nothing brought her more joy than to have her family under one roof.

Yvonne touched countless lives with her enormous heart and kind soul. Her words of wisdom never fell on deaf ears, for when she spoke, those around her listened. She lived a wonderful life, packed full of adventure and happiness. The world is a much dimmer place without her, but was made much brighter to all that were lucky enough to know her.

Yvonne was preceded in death by her husband of 63 years, Meryle Zubrod, parents; Charles and Della Hare, brothers; Charles Hare Jr and Richard “Dickie” Hare, sister-in-laws; Shirley Hare, Darlene Hare, and MaryAnn Love, and mother and father-in-law; Jerome and Ann Zubrod.

She is survived by her children; Steve Zubrod and Rita (Scott) Balsley, six grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, brother; Robert Hare, brother-in-laws; Robert Love and Duane (Kay) Zubrod, and sister-in-law; Marie Hare.
