Renee Millian Yorke Obituary
Renee Millian Yorke, resident of Boca Raton, FL passed away peacefully in her sleep during the night of Mother's Day, May 13, 2018. Born in Budapest, Hungary in 1929, Renee immigrated to the Bronx, NY in 1938. She married Howard J. Yorke in 1948, and together they raised two loving daughters, Suzanne and Shara, in Brooklyn, NY. Renee worked as an administrator for the NYC Department of Education until her retirement, after which she and her husband moved to Boca Raton, FL in 1991. After the passing of her husband in 1993, she found love and companionship in her life partner Donald Goobich of Howard Beach, NY, with whom she has shared the past two decades. Renee was an incredibly loving and cheerful person, with a wonderful laugh that could light up a room. She was a compassionate friend to many and a loving matriarch to her entire family. Renee loved music and dancing; her youthful spirit brought joy to all those who crossed her path. She will be remembered warmly by her daughters, their husbands, her six grandchildren, and one great grandchild, as well as her extended family as a shining example of positivity and joy. A service will be held at Beth Israel Memorial Chapel in Delray Beach, FL on Friday, May 18th at 12:15 PM. In lieu of flowers, those who wish to memorialize Renee are asked to make a donation to your charity or hospice of choice, in her name.
