Obituary

Yvonne June Stone

Yvonne June Stone was born June 25, 1934 near Galesburg, Kansas. She went to meet her Savior, Jesus Christ, on February 10, 2011.
June moved to Concrete with her family in 1941 and dedicated her life to becoming a medical missionary in Africa at age fifteen. After graduating from Concrete High School as validictorian she attended Davis Memorial Bible College in New York, graduating again with high honors. She then graduated from Everett General Hospital's nursing program and spent the following year working as a surgical nurse in Everett. From there she traveled to Paris, France and attended Sorbonne College, learning the French language. French Equatorial Africa (now called Central African Republic) was her final destination. After traveling to Fort Crampel to learn the local dialect, Sango, June was now ready to do hospital work in Africa as a missionary nurse.
Her experiences throughout her forty years in Africa are amazing.
At retirement, June returned to Everett, WA where she continued her ministry through the Calvary Baptist Church.
June is survived by sisters, Lavone Newell-Reim (Dick) and Judy Coffell (Bob); brothers, Chuck (Patty), Bill (Karen), and Jack Stone; two sisters-in-law, Barbara Stone and Lorraine Stone; and many nieces and nephews survive their Dear Aunt June.
Her extended church family encompasses the world.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Vera Stone; brothers, David, Marion, and Robert; and sister, Gertrude.
Services for June will be held on Saturday, February 19, 2011 at 11:00 a.m. at Calvary Baptist Church, 3332 Colby Avenue, Everett, WA 98201.
Burial will take place at 4:00 p.m. at Forest Park Cemetery in Concrete, WA.
