Yvonne L. Hubbard age 75 of Prairie du Chien passed away, surrounded by her children, Saturday, February 17, 2018, at Columbia St. Mary’s in Mequon, WI, after a six-month battle with cancer. Yvonne knew what life was about: no one left her house with an empty belly (most of those meals included her famous mashed potatoes), without getting a hug, and without hearing her say 'I love you'. Yvonne touched the heart and soul of everyone that met her. Her signature gift of joy, shown through her constant smiling and laughter will never be forgotten. With a real zest for life, Yvonne never worried about the little things and always had a smile on her face. Her number one love was her family. Yvonne enjoyed spending time in her garden, painting, reading, traveling, playing games, finding a good rummage sale, doing craft projects, coloring and playing with her grandchildren. Her love for nature, creativity and passion for learning new things are traits that she has passed on to the generations after her. Yvonne was born July 22, 1942, in Eastman, WI, the daughter of Walter and Martha (Mara) DuCharme. She married William Hubbard Sr. on November 12, 1963, in Preston, MN. She is survived by her four children, Dawn Hubbard of Milwaukee, William Hubbard Jr. of Harpers Ferry, IA, Shad (Kim) Hubbard of Milwaukee, and Starr (Nik) Damro of Milwaukee, along with her seven grandchildren: Steven, Amber (Drew), Anya, Claire, Emma, Harper and Lola and one great grandchild: Knox. She is also survived by her four brothers: Dewey (Billie Lou) DuCharme of Bagley, Jon (Joan) DuCharme of Fort Pierce, FL, Steve DuCharme of Eastman, and Mike DuCharme of Eastman; and four sisters: Beverly (Dale) Check of Eastman, Bunny (Rodney) Bartholomew of Juneau, Marcia Feilbach of Prairie du Chien, and Jenny Russell of Prairie du Chien. She was preceded in death by her husband on August 20, 2015, by her parents, an infant daughter Holly, and by her brother Stosh (Cheryl) of Wauzeka, WI.
