In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by three brothers, H. Leigh, Charles R. and John and a sister, R. Pearl.

Surviving are two nieces, Patricia L. Taylor, Hamilton, MT and Joyce Elaine (Doug) Bowers, Coraopolis, and two great-nephews, William and Charles Bowers.

Miss Yost certainly made a difference in my life. She and Miss Spahr gave generously of their time to establish the "Yale - Princeton" tradition at Ambridge High School. My mother, Olga Sudik, actually played for Yale. In 1961, I was the captain of Yale and Judy Cobourne was the Captain of Princeton. What an exciting time. Over the years, I''ve thought of Miss Yost and always wished her the best...what a fabulous, unselfish woman. She will always be a part of my family stories.
