Yvonne Marguerite Monson, 87 of Roseville, Calif., passed away peacefully on Saturday, March 30, 2013. Yvonne was born in France and moved to the United States after World War II. She married the love of her life, the late Grant Arthur Monson, and eventually settled in Los Gatos, Calif., for 32 years where they raised their two boys. Yvonne spent the last 15 years in Roseville, which became her new hometown. Yvonne always believed in fearlessly pursuing her big dreams. After 40 years of living in the United States, Yvonne traveled back to France and was able to reunite with her long lost family, an experience that brought her so much joy.
Yvonne is survived by her two sons, Grant Monson of Roseville and Scott Monson and his wife, Catherine of Los Gatos, Calif.; a sister, Christiane de Gunten of Le Lude, France; four grandchildren, Nicole, Brittni, Jeremy and Benjamin and two great-grandchildren, Emma and Ella.
