MILO - Yvonne M. Angove, 98, wife of the late Clyde Angove, passed away Jan. 31, 2011, at a Dover-Foxcroft hospital. She was born July 8, 1912, in Fort Kent, daughter of Edward and Alexandria Bouley. A graduate of Milo High School, Yvonne had worked at American Thread Co. for 35 years. She was a past member of White Shrine of Jerusalem, a life member and past matron of Aldworth Chapter No. 39 Order of the Eastern Star, a past president of Ayuda Club, and served as chairman of the advisory board of Rainbow Girls, Brownville. She was a very independent lady; she lived alone until the day she went to the hospital. She took pride in the fact she could get her own meals and do her own housework. She insisted she needed no help. Yvonne's knowledge and memories of the past were always interesting to hear, and she will be missed by the many people who consulted with her. She is survived by two daughters, Myrna Angove Ricker and Dorothy Ireland and her husband, James; a son-in-law, James Whalen; nine grandchildren, Robert Ricker and his wife, Lynn, Pamela London, Michele Washek and her husband, Bob, Robert Whalen and his wife, Michelle, Bill Whalen, Thomas Whalen, Steve Ireland and his wife, Evelyn, Jeffery Ireland and his wife, Tena, and Michael Ireland and his wife, Penny; 11 great-grandchildren, David Ricker and his wife, Cassidy, Hilary London, Alex London, Chris Ireland, Brandy Jewell, Jennifer Ireland, Emily, Melissa, and Julie Washek, Kasey and Kadiya Ireland; and three great-great-grandchildren, Clara and Bryce Jewell and James Whalen. Yvonne was predeceased by a daughter, Gloria Whalen; and a son-in-law, Lawrence Ricker. Graveside memorial services will be held in the spring in the family lot at Evergreen Cemetery, Milo. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that memorial contributions be made to Milo Meals for ME, care of Eastern Area Agency on Aging, 450 Essex St., Bangor, ME 04401. Arrangements are in the care of Lary Funeral Home, Milo. Messages of condolence and memories may be expressed at www.laryfuneralhome.com.
