Yvette R. Sullivan, age 94, passed away peacefully on Tuesday, December 8, 2020 at the Beaumont Rehabilitation and Skilled Nursing Facility in Westborough, Massachusetts. Born in Cambridge, Massachusetts on September 11, 1926, she was the daughter of the late Wilfred and Yvonne (LeFebvre) St. Martin. She was raised in Cambridge and graduated from Our Lady of Pity High School with the Class of 1944. Following her graduation, Yvette took a bookkeeper's position with the American Tea Company.
Yvette married her beloved husband, Joseph Daniel Sullivan, on May 1, 1948 in the Our Lady of Pity Church in Cambridge. The young couple initially made their home together in Belmont before settling in Walpole, Massachusetts in 1954. As she and Joseph welcomed their children, Yvette took on the role of a homemaker, raising and caring for her family. In 1962, Joseph and Yvette purchased a small camp in Northwood, New Hampshire and began spending weekends and summers there, taking advantage of the local beach. Following Joseph's retirement in 1987, the couple became snowbirds, purchasing a winter home in Zephyrhills, Florida, however, they always looked forward to spending the summer months at their camp in Northwood. In her later years, Yvette made her home in Zephyrhills year-round, enjoying the warm sunshine of Florida, however more recently, she returned home to Massachusetts, making her home in Bellingham to be close to her family.
Throughout her life, Yvette maintained a busy social calendar. She loved spending time with her friends, whether on a golf course of sitting around a card table.
