Celebration of life Sunday for Kerrie Yeasting, 1970-2014

A memorial service/celebration of life is planned this Sunday for Kerrie Yeasting, 44. Here’s the remembrance that’s being shared:

Kerrie Manolovitz Yeasting of Seattle died Thursday, November 20, 2014.

Kerrie was born on June 20, 1970 in Kodiak, Alaska. She loved the outdoors and exploring and photographing nature. Kerrie moved to West Seattle as a teenager and graduated from Seattle Lutheran High School. She went on to start a family in West Seattle, where she was active in co-op preschool and Alki Elementary PTA leadership for her boys Owen and Vic. She worked in business administration and human resources, and briefly owned the children’s store Chickadees in the West Seattle Junction. She recently moved from Seattle to North Bend, and spent the last couple months traveling through the Southwestern United States with her partner Scott.

Kerrie is survived by her two sons Owen and Victor Yeasting, mother Suzanne Carney, father Ken Manolovitz, brother Quint Manolovitz, sisters Annissa Manolovitz and Joi Bommarito-Lee, grandmother Phyllis Frederickson, partner Scott Robertson, ex-husband John Yeasting, and all of their extended families and the larger community of friends who will forever miss her and the indelible mark she left on many lives.

Services will be held at 2 pm, Sunday, November 30, 2014, at The Hall at Fauntleroy, and will include a celebration of life reception.

    I am very sorry to hear of Kerrie’s passing. I worked and volunteered beside her at Alki elementary many times. Her boys are two of the most polite, sweetest and kindest boys I have ever met. I also know their father has alot to do with that. My prayers are with her boys and John tonight.

    She is my age and also with 2 sons! Hits close to home. She sounds like a wonderful mother, and I pray that those boys are wrapped warmly in thousands of angels’ wings and feel surrounded by love and support. Hopefully they know their mother is still with them and would have chosen *more than anything* to have reamined in life if she could.

    I did not know Kerrie, but my thoughts and prayers are with her family especially her boys.

Sorry, comment time is over.
