Dabney, Shirley Yvonne  
Shirley Yvonne Dabney, a long time resident of Fairbanks passed from natural causes Nov. 17. She was born in Indianapolis,Indiana on Dec. 19, 1949, Something she remedied as soon as possible by a move to Anderson in January 1964. After graduating from Nenana High School, she attended beauty college in Anchorage. Moving to Fairbanks to work in the fast paced world of hair styling, she built a solid base of customers and friends and was a smiling helpful face in the many clubs she was a member of. Wanting to conquer a new world, Yvonne began her career in Public Works at Fort Wainwright, where she worked until her passing. Yvonne was always open to new experiences. A few of her favorite experiences were riding an elephant at the state fair, a hot air balloon ride floating over Fairbanks and a winter sleigh ride. On a horseback ride in California with her sister, she tumbled off, but being full of grit, Yvonne got back on and finished the ride. Yvonne went halibut fishing with her dad, catching one weighing 163 lbs, the largest caught that day. On a trip to Hawaii with her Mother, she was so excited to wade in the Pacific Ocean and a ride in the yellow submarine, where she marveled over the colorful fish. Yvonne took great pride in her nephews and nieces. Yvonne was each of her nephew's first visitor, relishing in her role as favorite Auntie. Yvonne is survived by her father, A.C. Dabney; brothers, Eric, wife Rory, and Greg, wife Gillian, and sister Barbara. And many nieces and nephews. A celebration of life is being held at Southern Lights Chapel on Fort Wainwright, at 3 p.m., with a fellowship to follow, 4107 Neely Road. Chaplin Major Gutting wil be officiating. Visitors to the Post must go to the Visitors Center to receive a pass. You'll need a vaild drivers license, current insurance and registration. Please visit to sign an online guest book.
