Yvonne Renee Fitzpatrick
Yvonne Renee Fitzpatrick, age 60, was a loving and wonderful mother of 3 “Our Mommy”. Yvonne was also affectionately known as “Noodles”, “Knot”, and “Fitz” by her siblings, friends, and co-workers. After a long, courageous and tiring battle with Leiomyosarcoma Cancer, she transitioned home to Glory on February 17, 2022, at Nathan Adelson Hospice in Las Vegas, NV.
Yvonne was born March 9, 1961, in Elyria, Ohio to Earlene and Nelson Fitzpatrick. The youngest of 6, her family describes her as generous, loving, honest, kind, humorous, strong and selfless. She was always someone who put her family and loved ones above herself and would give you her last in every instance.
She worked with the Clark County School District Transportation Department for 23 years, where she met her significant other of 18 years, Victor Karol Pacelli (Karl). Her coworkers would describe her as direct, extremely honest, one of a kind, and full of witty humor.
Yvonne moved to Las Vegas in 1998, three years after her youngest child was born. She enjoyed the occasional blackjack game, always stayed up to date on current events, enjoyed watching comedies and loved bloopers the most. She loved spending time with her family and especially her four grandsons whenever she could.
Yvonne is survived by her three daughters, Krystal (Michael) Bailey, Jessica Smith and Malia Fletcher; her four siblings, Leola Hughes, JoAnne (Roy) Hurst, Jordan (Tracey) Fitzpatrick and Sharon Fitzpatrick; four grandsons, Marcus Ned, Micah Fletcher-Watkins, Jessiah and Jy’Aire Roberson; her uncle, Ira Lanier; a multitude of nieces, nephews, cousins and more. Yvonne was preceded in death by her father Nelson Fitzpatrick, her mother Earlene Smith, her sister Avie Lawson, and her nephew Ephron Hurst.
A viewing will be Saturday, February 26, from 11AM until time of service at 12Noon at Living Word Church, 2002 E. 28th St., Lorain. Social distancing and wearing a mask are required.
In lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate it if donations are made to Yvonne’s favorite charity, St Jude Children’s Hospital, where she donated faithfully every month.
