Yvonne Sweezy Shipman

June 21, 1966 - September 29, 2018

Yvonne Sweezy Shipman, 52, of Hendersonville went home to be with her son, CJ, on Saturday, September 29, 2018.

A lifelong resident of Henderson County, she was a daughter of Savannah Fore Sweezy and the late Gene Sweezy. In addition to her father, she was preceded in death by her son, CJ Shipman, who unfortunately also passed away this September.

Yvonne had a wonderful way of making everyone laugh. She was a free spirit, who loved animals and nature. Most of all, she had a deep love for her family.

In addition to her mother, she leaves behind her daughter, Amber Taylor (Nathan) of Candler; granddaughters, Savannah Taylor and Olivia Shipman; brothers, Tim Sweezy and Randy Silver; sister, Debbie Osteen (Glen); step-sisters, Donnell Hubbard and Tina Shipman; and many nieces, nephews and other relatives.

A celebration of Yvonne’s life will be held at 2 PM Saturday, October 13, 2018 in the Forest Lawn Funeral Home Chapel. Her brother, Tim Sweezy will officiate. Following the service, there will be a sharing of memories at the graveside as Yvonne and CJ are both laid to rest.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to SafeLight to help victims of domestic abuse.
