Yvonne was born in Bertha, MN, on June 16, 1940, the daughter to Kenneth and Rosetta (Krosch) Kern. She grew up and attended school in Hewett, MN. After her formal education, she was united in marriage to Wesley Henderson at a church in Fergus Falls, MN, in 1958 and were married for 11 years before Wesley’s passing in 1969. Yvonne enjoyed working for the public school system as a bus driver in Fergus Falls, MN, and she prided herself in consistently arriving to work early. In 1997, Yvonne retired and moved to Breckenridge, MN. She entered St. Francis Nursing Home in 2011 where she has since resided.

Family and friends were the centers of Yvonne’s life. She filled her days with crocheting, playing bingo at the Wahpeton/Breckenridge Senior Center, and joining her grandchildren for different activities. The highlight of her week was being surrounded by her family for a Sunday meal at her home. Yvonne’s personality radiated warmth and joy and had a smile that could brighten any room.
