January 26, 1930 - November 18, 2016 Carol, "Mamie" Yocom, 86, passed away on Friday, November 18, 2016 after a brief battle with cancer with her family and friend by her side. Born in Oklahoma, she was the only child of Mable and Bill Polumbus. She married the love of her life Jerry Yocom and they moved to California. She lived in many California locales including San Jose, Riverside, Palos Verdes, Redlands and Dana Point. Carol was a stay at home mom but what best describes her is "professional volunteer".

She was very active in her community, Niguel Shores, serving on various committees and writing a monthly article for the Sea Shores Newsletter entitled "Carol's Cuisine Corner". Carol loved her family, friends, the color purple, chocolate, Redlands, her "Fluffy Ewes bridge group" going out to lunch with friends, her birthday month, and the list goes on and on! Carol is survived by her son, Guy; daughter-in-law Myra; grandchildren, Angela dePoto, (Rob) Gina and Garrett Yocom; and great grandchildren Hailey and Nicholas dePoto. She is preceded in death by her husband, Jerry, and daughter Claudia DeRoos. A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, January 21, 2017 at El Niguel Country Club from 11 to 2 pm. In lieu of flowers donations can be made in her memory to Assistance League of Redlands, 506 W. Colton Avenue, Redlands, CA 92374. O'Connor Mortuary (949) 581-4300 www.oconnormortuary.com
