Jeanne Yvonne McMurray Slaughter, age 95, of Rockwall, TX, passed away on February 19, 2022. She was born May 29, 1926, in McKinney, TX, to Jess Thomas McMurray and Christine Elizabeth (Duval) McMurray. Yvonne was a 70-year member of First United Methodist Church in Rockwall. She will be deeply missed.

Yvonne Slaughter was a woman of faith and a woman who loved her family with everything she had. She was the glue that kept her family together through tough times. She will be missed for her smile that could light up a room, and the overwhelming ability to make you feel at home. She would want everyone to know that she is at peace and now can stand tall and hear your prayers. Matthew 11:28-30 “Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.”

Yvonne is survived by her children: Cathy Slaughter of Rockwall, TX, Betsy Blundell and husband Billy of Lake Kiowa, TX, Richard Slaughter and wife Emily of Rockwall, TX, Scott Slaughter and wife Carol of Austin, TX, and Dean Slaughter of The Colony, TX; twelve grandchildren Tabatha (Bobby), Bart (Laura), Blake (Amanda), Maggie, Owen, Benjamin (Kendall), Jessica (Drew), Emily, Alison (Matt), Christine (Patrick), David (Katherine), Katie (Ben); and eleven great-grandchildren Owen, Ellie, Robert, Grace, Lilly, Quinn, Jackson, Burkley, Kennedy, Piper, Shiloh. She was preceded in death by her husband: R.E. Earl Slaughter, Sr.; great-grandson: Holden; sister: Bette Graham; and her parents.

A celebration of Yvonne’s life will be held 1:00pm Friday, February 25, 2022, at First United Methodist Church, 1200 E Yellow Jacket Ln, Rockwall, TX, 75087, officiated by Dr. Joe Poole. A gathering of family and friends will take place prior to service beginning at 12:00pm.
