Yvonne Martinez Osorio, age 48, of Carpentersville, passed away at Advocate Good Shepherd Hospital in Barrington, IL on April 26, 2019. She was born August 27, 1970 in Laredo, TX to her loving parents, Jose A. Martinez and Rosalinda Espinoza.
Yvonne attended Larkin High School and then worked as a bus driver for District U-46 and District 300 Schools. During her time there she built a special, loving connection with many of her students.
Yvonne met the love of her life, Rene Valle Osorio Jr., and the two were married on July 17, 2012. Yvonne then stayed at home full time to provide care for her three youngest children.
Loved ones will remember Yvonne’s overflowing heart and loving, caring nature. She thrived on conversation and would befriend everyone who crossed her path. She never failed to speak her mind and always wore her heart on her sleeve. She carried herself with a welcoming attitude and approached friends and strangers alike with open arms and without judgment. Yvonne loved her faith and was inspired to give her life to Christianity. She valiantly followed her heart and was baptized on November 16, 2014. Her family and friends will forever treasure the beautiful memory with the video of “Yvonne’s Baptism.”
Yvonne’s selfless nature would shine through her bond with her mother, Rosalinda. Her unequivocal love and devotion was unwavering, and she was always available to her no matter the circumstance.
Yvonne was a passionate volunteer for the D300 Food Bank. She loved helping people and giving back, and was featured as the face of the pantry volunteers in the organization’s video, “What Makes Us Different.”
Yvonne loved animals and would never hesitate to rescue any she ever found to be in distress. She had a special place in her heart for all of the family pets. She will be greatly missed by all of her furbabies.
