Church Office Secretary
I’m a life ling member of St. Peter’s Lutheran Church. My husband Mark and I grew up in the area, and have 2 boys, Jacob and Ryan. I worked as a Project Coordinator Assistant in the environmental field for 19 years until 2009, when I decided to change things up and become a housekeeper at Shorehaven Lutheran Homes in Oconomowoc. When the position of Church Secretary for St. Peter’s came up in November of 2012, I felt this would be a good fit for me while still working at Shorehaven in the mornings.
I’ve enjoyed my time here so far very much and always look forward to seeing everyone that stops in.
Yvonne is a lifelong member of St. Peter’s. She and her husband of 50 years, Arnold, enjoy gardening and living in rural Watertown.
