for such belongs the kingdom of heaven."
Nearly six hours after coming into the world, Eva Kathryn Yankee passed
away peacefully in her parents' arms at the Blanchard Valley Hospital in
Findlay, OH. Although her earthly life was short, she touched many lives
and was loved by all who met her.
Eva Kathryn Yankee was born Monday March 5, 2018 at 10:33 a.m. and
received her angel wings sailing into eternity that afternoon at 4:15 p.m.
She is the daughter of David and Kathryn "Katie" Yankee of Kenton.
She is survived by her sister Harper Yankee at home, paternal grandparents
Mike Yankee of Kenton and Karen Yankee of Kenton; maternal grandparents
Kevin (Amy) Park of Bryan, OH and Kathy Park of Bryan, OH; and her
maternal great grandmother Dorothy Park of Chillicothe, OH.
Eva's legacy will continue to live on as she was able to donate 6 of her
organs for research with the hope to find cures for things such as
childhood cancer, diabetes, and other life-limiting diagnoses.
The family will hold a private Memorial Service for Eva Kathryn at the
Kenton Church of the Nazarene with Pastor Dave Dooley officiating the
service. She will be laid to rest in the Salem Cemetery, rural Kenton.
