She loved spending time with family and friends — in particular with her grandmother, Lettie Ann, and chowing her uncle Carl’s cheeseburgers on the grill, listening to music — her favorite song was “YMCA,” dancing and living in her joy.

Yvette is survived by her mother, Verlaine, of Albert Lea; grandmother, Lettie Ann Anderson, of Albert Lea; uncles Carl (Nancy) Anderson of Clarks Grove and Eric Anderson of Minneapolis; and cousins Nyla and her daughter, Camae Anderson, and Kyle (Heidi) and their son, Trey Anderson.

She was preceded in death by her grandfather, Lyle “PaPa” Anderson.

She will be greatly missed by her loving family and friends.
