Marie Yvonne Nunez

Last night local artist and Fawnskin resident, Yvonne Nunez left this world to shine her light elsewhere. Father Larry and a few close neighbors rallied by her husband Steven Nunez shortly after his loss and through the hospice procedures until his daughter and son-in-law arrived in the early hours of this morning.

If you didn’t have the privilege to have known Yvonne, she was one of Fawnskin’s finest. The love she and Steve shared is something most people only dream about and I often joked that they needed a fire extinguisher to be out in public.

Yvonne will truly be missed. Her smile would light up a room and her presence touched many people. Her strong spirit and humor radiated out to everyone who visited–although you won’t believe it, she was 77. (She was battling cancer.)

Steve is having a hard time and will probably be sleeping today as he was up all night and into the wee hours of the morning waiting for her body to be picked up. I can’t give out their PO Box but Post Master Cynthia says to just address any correspondence to him at General Delivery, Fawnskin, CA 92333 and she’ll put it in his box. He could probably use your support and other gestures over the next few weeks and months.

To our paramedics, thanks for your great kindness. One of the things we love about you is that you truly reflect the heart of this community.
