Funeral services for Yvonne Reeves, affectionately known as MeMaw, 90, of Bernice, LA will be held on Sunday, August 18, 2019 at 2:00 p.m. at Evergreen Baptist Church in Bernice, LA. Officiating the service will be Rev. Jerry Chapman assisted by Rev. Wayne Sistrunk. Interment will follow at Evergreen Cemetery in Bernice, LA under the direction of Kilpatrick Funeral Home of Farmerville, LA. Very happily married for over 33 years to her true love with whom she raised three sons, Ms. Yvonne was a greatly devoted wife to Hubert and a dedicated mother to their sons. She was born on August 4, 1929 in Bernice, LA and passed away on August 16, 2019 at her home surrounded by her family. She was preceded in death by her husband Hubert Reeves, her mother Uva Spencer, stepfather Elmer Spencer and her father, Elmer Anderson; sisters, Tea Pylant and Mary Alice Reeves; brother- in law, Fred Reeves; grandsons, Ryan Derrick Reeves, and Andrew Phillip Reeves. Memaw was gracious, generous, and hospitable. She had a gift for making visitors feel a genuine welcome in her home. Since one of her passions was cooking, that welcome involved food. Whether it was a cake, a casserole, or a pot of soup, she nearly always had food and coffee ready just in case somebody stopped by. Her fried chicken and coconut pies were legendary. She was the consummate homemaker who wanted her house to be a homey place for her family. Ms. Yvonne spent her life in the Evergreen community, and Evergreen Church was an integral part of her life. Wherever there was a need, she served. Throughout the years, on any Sunday, folks at Evergreen might see her serving food, cleaning the kitchen, teaching at VBS, or singing alto in the choir. Survivors are her sons, Mike Reeves and wife Gail of Bernice, LA; Dennis Reeves and wife Shelda of Bullard, TX; and Ken Reeves and wife Angie of Lillie, LA; grandchildren, Kristen Francis, Misty Vanemburg, Melissa Ramsey, Susan Pullig, Phillip Reeves, Steven Reeves, Michael Reeves, Evin Stapleton, Adrienne Reeves, and Hannah Reeves; nineteen great-grandchildren; brothers, Mayer Spencer and wife Nell, Eldridge Spencer and brother-in-law, Herbert Pylant. Pallbearers will be Josh Ramsey, Jeff Vanemburg, Michael Reeves, Steven Reeves, Sam Vanemburg, Bennett Boswell, Banks Boswell, and Larry Reeves. Honorary Pallbearers will be Phillip Reeves, Glynn Funderburk, and Josh Hall. Visitation will be held on Saturday, August 17, 2019 from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at Evergreen Baptist Church in Bernice.
