Yvonne L. KLINE

KLINE Yvonne L. 7/19/1935 - 7/21/2010


After fighting a valiant battle with cancer that began 32 years ago, Yvonne L. Kline, 75, of Whitehouse Ohio, passed away peacefully at Hospice of Northwest Ohio, Perrysburg, surrounded by her loving family. Yvonne was born to John and Leolla Hoodlet on July 19th, 1935. She was a 1953 graduate of Libbey High School. She was preceded in death by her husband of 52 years, Charles L. Kline.


Yvonne was a noted Medical Transcriptionist for many years at St. Luke's Hospital, the former Mercy Hospital, and independently for several medical practices in the Toledo area. Her accomplished skills and expertise were invaluable to medical professionals and coworkers.


She was an avid reader, enjoyed bowling, knitting, shopping, exercise classes at the Y, and spending time with her children and grandchildren. Most recently, she reunited with and enjoyed monthly dinners with her Libbey High School classmates (Libbey Girls).


Yvonne is survived by her son, Charles J. (Elizabeth) Kline, and daughters, Susan L. Kline, Sharon L. (Kenneth) Swartz and Christina M. (Tony) Cici. She will be deeply missed by her cherished grandsons, Jeffery, Adam, Zachary, Aaron, Nathan and Jacob; great- grandsons, Bryce, Syler and expected great-grandson due in December, 2010, and great-granddaughter Abbigail. Also surviving are her brothers Eugene (Barbara) Hoodlet and Dennis Hoodlet; brother-in-law, William (Marilyn) Kline; sister-in-law, Shirley Pereus, and many nieces and nephews.


Yvonne's courage, strength and determination were an inspiration to all who knew her. She will be missed by all whose lives she touched. The family wishes to extend a heartfelt thank you to the special nurses and caregivers at Hospice of Northwest Ohio (both home care and Perrysburg in-patient).
