Yetta Jane Souders, age 95, of Palm Coast, Fla., died on March 10, 2019.

Born on December 5, 1923, in Hancock, Md., Yetta was the wife of Ira H. Souders; the daughter of Benjamin A. and Mary Rosalie Younker; and the sister to Dolores Y. Creek, Arnold L. Younker, and Lowell E. Younker, all of whom pre-deceased her.

She is survived by her three children, Sandra Jean Prettyman, Ronald Lee Souders, and Anne Yvonne Barbour; seven grandchildren; and thirteen great-grandchildren.

Yetta graduated from Hancock High School and Towson University, and was an elementary school teacher.

She was a life-long member of St. Thomas’ Episcopal Church, in Hancock, Md., and also in Palm Coast, Fla.  She was very involved in both churches including, but not limited to, the altar guild, lay reader and Steven Ministries. She was a devout member of the Daughters of the King.

After retiring to Palm Coast, Yetta remained active for over thirty years in public service clubs, including Flagler County Council on Aging; Disabled American Veterans Auxiliary; and Flagler Beach Senior Citizens Club.  She also volunteered with the local Hospice.  In 1995 she was selected as the Outstanding Volunteer of Flagler County for her work with that organization. She was greatly admired by those with whom she came in contact during those long years of volunteer service.  While small in stature, she was a dynamo in getting things done.  She will truly be missed.
