Wilhelmina Yadack (1913 – 2012)
BOCA RATON, FL—Wilhelmina (Billie) Yadack, 98, passed away peacefully, September 2, 2012 at the Regents Park Nursing Home.
She was born September 23, 1913 in Saugerties, the daughter of Anthony and Mary Rinaldi.
She obtained her Bachelor of Science degree cum laude at the age of 19 from The College of St. Rose in Albany. She was predeceased by her husband Peter Yadack, whom she was married on June 26, 1938. Mrs. Yadack was a teacher in the Catskill Central School and the Hudson City School districts for more than 36 years. She taught everything from kindergarten through high school. Her positive and happy outlook on life inspired all who came in contact with her throughout her life.
After retiring from teaching, Mrs. Yadack and her husband, Peter, who owned the Yadack Funeral Home in Germantown, also retired and moved to Boca Raton to be close to their only daughter, Nancy Sarazen and their three grandchildren, Gene Sarazen, III, Susan Lynn Sarazen and Geoffrey Sarazen.
Mrs. Yadack wasn’t done with working, she got her real estate license and went to work for Portner and Portner Real Estate. She earned rewards for top salesman of the month, month after month. Following her career as a realtor, she started a new venture preparing special dishes in the employee cafeteria in Burdines Department Store, where she was known for her very special rice pudding.
In the years that followed the unexpected death of her husband, Peter, she was able to again find longterm companionship and love with George Snow, Sr. and together they traveled and enjoyed life for 17 years until his death. They were at the top of many party lists because they were so full of life and fun to be around.
A severe stroke ultimately caused Mrs. Yadack to become a resident at Regents Park Nursing Home in Boca Raton. But with her bubbly, happy go lucky personality, she became the Welcome Wagon lady to new residents of the nursing home. Riding around in her scooter, she would welcome new residents with a small gift and a welcome chat to put them at ease about their new home. She became the longest resident ever there, living at Regents for 17 and a half years before her death.
Mrs. Yadack was predeceased by her brothers, Bernard, Gene, Vincent, and David and Anthony and a sister, Mary.
She is survived by: her sister, Virginia Worby of California; her daughter, Nancy Sarazen; grandchildren, Gene Sarazen, III, and his wife, Heather, Susan Sarazen Bamdas and her husband, David and Geoffrey Sarazen and his wife, Chalise; four great grandchildren, Tyler Bamdas, Britt Sarazen, Bryce Sarazen and Mary Landis Sarazen; many nieces, nephews and grand nieces and nephews, all of who will miss her so much.
Arrangements for her memorial service are being handled by the Glick Family Funeral Home in Boca Raton, Florida.
