She was born April 28, 1947, in Linton, to the late Gene and Lois Hauser. Yvonne graduated from Center Grove High School in 1965. She retired from the Indiana Judicial Center after working for the State of Indiana for 35 years. She was a very active member of St. Paul United Methodist Church in Rushville. She grew up and raised her daughters as a devoted member of Smith Valley United Methodist Church.

She was a proud member of the Rushville associate chapter of Tri Kappa, serving as past president and a state province officer while a member of the Center Grove chapter. Yvonne enjoyed her friends in Hint Hunters Home Ec Club and her online “Words with Friends Praying Partners.” She enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and pseudo-grandchildren, reading, knitting and most of all laughing with lifelong friends. She was a loving mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend to all.

Survivors include her daughters, Denise (David) Payne of Rushville and Leslie (Michael) Kidwell of Indianapolis; grandchildren, Lauryn and Carter Payne and Charles and Eva Kidwell.

Also surviving are her stepmother, Marjie Hauser of Morgantown; half brother, Clinton B. Hauser of Camden, Tennessee; stepsisters, Marsha (Phil) Wilson of Franklin, Mary (Roger) Lawrence and Martha (Kevin) McIntosh all of Morgantown; stepbrothers Bruce Hearn of San Jose, California, and Tim Hearn of Columbus; and many other loving family members.

She was preceded in death by her sister, Yvette Hauser.

A celebration of life service will be at 10 a.m. Wednesday at Todd Funeral Centre & Crematory with visitation from 4 to 8 p.m. Tuesday. Jan Dimick will officiate. The family will hold private burial services at a later date.
