Yvonne B. Aken
Yvonne B. Aken, was born to Joseph and Talitha (Owens) Nicholson on November 29th, 1923 in Tobias, NE. She passed on August 24th, 2014 at Heritage Care Center.
Her father worked for the railroad so the family moved from time to time. She graduated from high school in Fortescue, Mo. Something most wouldn’t know about Yvonne was that during her Senior year and for a time after graduation, she taught 1st and 2ndgrade and, loved it.
The Nicholson family moved back to Nebraska where she met and married Calvin Burkett and raised two daughters, Leslie Gail and Kimberly Jo.
Cal died in 1977 and she went to work for the Jefferson County Memorial Hospital in dietary. This was the perfect niche for her to showcase her amazing cooking and baking skills. She retired in 2002, much to the dismay of the hospital kitchen. She was 79.
She married to Dale Lange from 1980 until his death in 1990.
