Yvonne S. Stults

Yvonne Sue Stults, a soft spoken, family-oriented woman who always had an answer, died July 27, 2021. Yvonne, 67, was born August 1, 1953, in Charlotte to Lyle and Shirley (Bursley) Royston. She enjoyed reading, especially books about royalty. She was a collector, collecting stamps and coins, and birthday cards, she saved them all. She enjoyed going to garage sales in search of antiques, doing word-puzzles, tap dancing, roller-skating, going to church with her parents and grandparents, spending time with her family and friends, and going to car shows with Gary. She also was a big fan of the Kentucky Derby and horse racing. She was a 4-H leader where she taught ceramics for Spaulding 4-H Club. She worked as an injection molder for Dare Products, Inc., and enjoyed their home in Bellevue. Her parents said she was the perfect daughter. She was always on time and very organized. When Yvonne found out she was sick, she started writing an instruction book for the rest of the family on how to . . . just about everything. Her grandchildren meant everything to her, it was all about the grandkids.
Yvonne is survived by her loving parents, Lyle and Shirley Royston; children, Jerry Bracy, Laura (Russ) Crosslan, Jeff (Carla) Stults, Vicki Stasi; grandchildren, Brooke (Tyler) Sheppard, Kerstin (Chris) Smith, Olivia Rushmore, Gauge Linn, R.J. Crosslan, Jakob Crosslan, Scott (Jessica) Stults and Jenna (Blake) Shay; great-grandchildren, Jaylinn, Colton and Paisley Smith, Chyenne, Scott Jr., and Madison Stults; and nephew, Shelby Royston.
Yvonne was predeceased by death by her husband, Gary Lee Stults; grandparents, Leo (Freda) Royston, Helen Matter, Melvin Bursley; great-grandparents, George (Elsie) Reed; brother, Melvin Lyle Royston; and son-in-law, Dominic Stasi.
