Barbara Jean Yrigoyen Obituary

Barbara Jean Yrigoyen passed to Heaven on Tuesday, July 16, 2019, at her daughter’s home in Aberdeen, Washington. She was 84. Barbara was born January 27, 1935, in Hilo, Hawaii, the youngest child of Henry Carlos and Anna Riveira Carlos. The family eventually settled in San Francisco, California. There she married her brother’s best friend Joseph Mike Yrigoyen in 1956 and had two daughters, Leslie Michele and Michelle Anne. They made their home in South San Francisco where Barbara worked as a homemaker and as a special education school bus driver. When Joe retired from the construction trade in the 1980’s they moved to Sonora, California, where Barbara worked as an in-home caregiver. Upon Joe’s death in 2007, Barbara moved to Aberdeen to live near her daughters.

The most important thing to Barbara was her faith in God and trust in her Savior Jesus Christ. She was active in Calvary Chapel in Sonora, and later attended Pilgrim Bible Church in Steilacoom, Washington, and Grace Harbor Covenant Church and First Presbyterian Church in Aberdeen. She loved studying the Bible, praying diligently, sharing her faith, and ministering kindness, encouragement, and tangible help to countless individuals. She often travelled to take care of sick relatives and would do all she could to help out family members. Of her it can truly be said, “Well done, good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of your Lord.”

Barbara was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Joseph, brother Henry Carlos, and sister Genevieve Borgeson. She is survived by her sister Anita Vitale of Eureka, California, daughters Leslie O’Brien (John) of Aberdeen and Michelle Courts (Thomas) of Olympia, grandson Tom Courts of Olympia, and many nieces and nephews.

Sincere thanks to the Alzheimer’s Caregivers Support Group, Harbors Home Health and Hospice, Summit Pacific Medical Center, Montesano Health and Rehab, and special angels Isarai, Lacey, and Lori.

A memorial service and reception will be held Saturday, August 3, 2019, at 1:00 pm at the First Presbyterian Church of Aberdeen, 420 N. Broadway St, Aberdeen, WA.

Donations are suggested to the Union Gospel Mission of Grays Harbor.

Cremation arrangements are entrusted to Twibell’s Fern Hill Funeral Home, Aberdeen WA.
