Yvonne Elizabeth (Peeters) King


CROWN POINT — Yvonne Elizabeth (Peeters) King, 42, of Crown Point, passed away unexpectedly Wednesday, Dec. 8, 2010, at the Moses-Ludington Hospital of Ticonderoga.

Born in Ticonderoga, N.Y., Jan. 17, 1968, she was the daughter of the late Coenrardus Peeters and Constance (Peters) Peeters, who survives her, of Ticonderoga.

Yvonne was a 1986 graduate of Ticonderoga High School. She was a resident of Ticonderoga and Crown Point for most of her life.

Yvonne was the happiest taking care of other people. In her early years, she worked as a nanny in New Jersey. Later in life, she was a home health aide, making many special friends. Most recently, she provided care for the residents at Mountain Lake Services at North Road in Moriah Center, N.Y. Yvonne often quietly gave to others in such ways as volunteering at the animal shelter or just stopping to spend some extra time with an elderly client on the weekend.

On June 3, 1995, she married the love of her life, Gary King. He understood her like no other. Yvonne and Gary shared their love of animals with their two special cats, Jelly Bean and Big Foot.

Survivors, in addition to her husband, Gary King, include her mother, Constance Peeters of Ticonderoga; one brother, Theodore C. Peeters and his wife, Darlene of Ticonderoga; and one sister, Susanne M. Huestis and her husband, John of Ticonderoga. She is also survived by two nieces, Nicole Huestis and Kaitlyn Huestis; and one nephew, Joshua Peeters.

A Mass of Christian burial will be celebrated Saturday, Dec. 11, at 1 p.m. at St. Mary’s Catholic Church of Ticonderoga. The Rev. William G. Muench, pastor, will officiate.

The Rite of Committal will follow at the family plot of St. Mary’s Parish Cemetery of Ticonderoga.

Donations in Yvonne’s memory may be made to the North Country SPCA, 23 Lakeshore Road, Westport, NY 12993.
