Yvonne was a loving and caring Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother. Devoted to her family, she lived a life of self-sacrifice for others rather than herself. Her commitment to her health career and the care of others has touched the lives of many in the communities she lived and worked in. Her Nursing career took her to California, Denver and Colorado Springs, Colorado, Enid, Oklahoma, Lawton, Oklahoma, Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and her hometown of Pawnee, Oklahoma.
Yvonne was the eldest daughter of Chester Leading Fox and Lillie Carson, she was born on November 26, 1936. She was 82 years old. Yvonne was a proud member of the Pawnee Nation - Skidi Band, and descendent of the Iowa and Otoe-Missouria Nations. She cherished all the memories and loved all of her Indian people. Yvonne started her young life at Pawnee “Gravy U” Boarding School. She left immediately for Haskell Institute in Lawrence, Kansas. Upon her graduation at Haskell, Yvonne continued her education at Saint John’s Nursing Academy where she completed all requirements with high honors. At this point in her life Yvonne was pressed by the Holy Spirit to become a Nun within the Catholic Church. Her loving Grandmother, Mary (Maw) Dupee-Irving, stressed to her Granddaughter that there were other paths to serve mankind in caring ways. Yvonne chose Nursing and health care for the sake of humanity, yet, owed her life servitude to Jesus Christ.

Yvonne is survived by her children, Joe Bruce Kaulaity, Carol Kaulaity of El Reno, Lillie Kaulaity-Nelson of Lawton, Mary Kaulaity of El Reno, Sandra Kaulaity-Kelley of OKC and adopted son Jake Adams Leading Fox of Pawnee. She is survived by her sisters; Hazel Downing and Kay Leading Fox, and brothers; Charlie Leading Fox, Chester Leading Fox, Greg Leading Fox, Pratt Leading Fox, Pat Leading Fox, Lance Leading Fox, Chris Leading Fox, and her son in laws; William Nelson Sr. and John Kelley.
Yvonne leaves behind her sweet loving legacy to her eighteen (18) Grandchildren and her twenty-five (25) Great-Grandchildren. Indeed, a Good Mother, Grandmother and Great-Grandmother passed through us all.
