Yvette held the Amateur Radio callsign of KE6HXU
and was a regular on the
and the Jet Propulsion Laboratory ARC repeater in the Los Angeles area, Southern California. She was occasionally also heard on the N6ENV repeater on Oat Mountain.
With a very recognizable (and genuine) Texas twang in her voice, she frequently reported stranded motorists on the freeways to other hams to relay to the CHP and other authorities.
Yvette was a proud contributor to QSL.net.
Yvette was a school teacher. She was known as "Mrs. Bartholomew" to her students at Dolores Street Elementary School in Carson, CA. A number of them attended her funeral. They created a very nice tribute poster for their former teacher.
Yvette was a graduate of
Schreiner College in Kerrville, TX,
and California State University, Northridge, CA.
Yvette wrote some original poetry.
Here's one we'd like to share, called
A Patriot's Song.
John and Yvette spent 10½ happy years together.
This is the scenery at Yvette's final resting place,
at Davidson Cemetery,
Coryell County, Texas. This is a very peaceful place. The only sounds to be heard are the warm breeze in the oak trees, birds chirping, and the cows mooing in a field some distance away.
just like other people. We thank you all.
