Belva V. Yoder

Belva V. Yoder, of Iowa Park, Texas, went to be with our Lord and Savior on Sunday, November 16, 2014.

Funeral services will be held at 10:00 A.M. Thursday, November 20, 2014, in the Chapel at Dutton Funeral Home. Visitation will be from 6:00 to 8:00 P.M. on Wednesday, November 19, 2014 at the funeral home. Burial will be at Fort Sill National Cemetery in Elgin, Oklahoma.

Belva was born February 19, 1933 in Carrier, Oklahoma. Her unconditional love and sweet spirit reached out to more than a few. For over 62 years she exemplified the example of a Christian wife, as a military wife, lovingly raised 2 children, and helped mold multiple generations while working at Kings Kids Daycare in Iowa Park. Most recently she enjoyed spending time with her family who knew her love for chocolate and her fresh fried fish as the best they ever tasted.

She is survived by her husband, Bural Yoder; sister, Joelene Custer of Colorado; son, Marshall Yoder of Iowa Park; daughter, Debra Bucher of Plano, TX, 3 grandchildren; and 4 great grandchildren.

Memorials are suggested to Hospice of Wichita Falls, 4909 Johnson Road, Wichita Falls, TX 76310.
