Yvonne Alice Andreason

Yvonne Alice Andreason passed away peacefully on March 12, 2020, at Providence Regional Medical Center in Everett, Washington. She was 72.

She was born in Sitka August 7, 1947, the youngest daughter of Helen Alice Butler and Cecil Fred Wentz.

She attended Sitka schools, and in 1966 married Kit W. Andreason, a member of the United States Coast Guard who was serving in Sitka. Even though the ship’s captain wouldn’t give them permission to get married, department heads saw differently. The two were married for 53 wonderful years.   

Yvonne was a homemaker, and enjoyed doing things with her kids – going to movies was a favorite treat.

The Andreasons moved to Everett from Sitka in 1989.

Yvonne was survived by her three beautiful children, Kenneth (Jaime) Andreason, and Jason (Christina) Andreason, both of Everett, and Charlotte (Marc) Brisbois-Sumner, Yakima, Washington. Her grandchildren are  Triana Andreason and Logan Andreason, of Everett; and Doug and Laura Lawrence, of Yakima. 

A private graveside service followed by a celebration of life by the family will be held.
