Yvonne Jean Wiliams was born May 13, 1957, in Burley, Idaho to Carol Rossiter-Williams and Richard Arthur Williams. She was the second of four children, two sisters and one brother.

Yvonne completed her education in Blackfoot Idaho. She got married and moved to Texas where she had two children, Sean, and Carolee. After moving back to Montana, she began working for her mother, Carol Williams, at the Flyaway Café for over 20 years where she became an amazingly skilled waitress. After the closure of the Flyaway Café, she obtained her CNA and began working at nursing homes with the elderly and in group homes with children where she was able to show her care and compassion to those she looked after.
