Yvonne Mary Verbel, 84, of Loveland, CO went to be with her Lord Jesus on May 23, 2019. Yvonne was born in Potsdam, NY in 1935 to John Paul and Eva (Duvall) Demers. Yvonne moved to Long Island, NY and married Edmund Verbel in 1956. This was the beginning of Yvonne’s love of the beach and all the joy it brought to her. She settled in Williston Park, NY to raise her family. Yvonne was active with various careers and then found her passion for nursing after graduating from NY Tech as a Registered Nurse in 1987. She worked at Nassau Community Hospital on Long Island for several years before deciding to call Colorado her home. Yvonne continued her career helping others as a Psych Nurse at Denver General until her retirement in 1998.
Yvonne loved to travel and made many trips with great friends. Yvonne found joy in biking and was able to complete the MS 150 well into her 60s. Yvonne loved to bake, garden and pamper her cats. She was happiest working in her garden and sharing it with family and friends. Yvonne was always ready to go and do and felt relaxing was a waste of time.
Yvonne was preceded in death by her brother Jan Demers. She is survived by her brother Ed Demers (Judy); sister Sue Gaska; son Vincent Verbel (Kathy); grandsons Blake Verbel and Benson Verbel (Bethany); and her great-granddaughters Berkeley and Baylor Verbel.
Yvonne was an active member of Loveland Bible Church and had many friends.
