HARVEY Yvonne Marie Zintman, age 62, of 411 County Road 480, Marquette, entered eternal life Thursday evening, June 27, 2013, at her home, in the loving, comforting care of her family and Lake Superior Hospice.
Born October 29, 1950 in Marquette, a daughter of Charles "Skip" and Shirley (Trepanier) Lindberg, Yvonne was raised in Marquette and graduated from Bishop Baraga High School. Throughout the years, she balanced her roles of wife, mother, and homemaker, with those of work, and finally the best role of all, grandma.
Her interests were many and ranged from enjoying Yahtzee on Pork Chop Tuesdays, a tradition for over 15 years where friends got together over games of Yahtzee and enjoyed a good home cooked pork chop dinner, to the love of finding treasures at garage sales, and occasional visits to the casino.
