OBITUARY:

Edward Yauneridge passed away at the Lahey Clinic in Burlington, Friday, December 29th, after a very brief illness. The devoted husband of Diana (Hamilton) Yauneridge, he was fifty five years old.

Born in Lakewood, Ohio, Ed was one of eight children born to Michael and Connie (Morris) Yauneridge of Sidman, PA. Having moved to Sidman, Pennsylvania, Ed was raised and educated there, graduating from the Greater Johnstown Vocational Technical High School.

Having been exposed to machine shop work while he was growing up, Ed took quite an interest in mechanical design which appeared to come easily and very natural for him. His expertise developed further when he moved west to Colorado and honed his craft under the tutelage of a dear friend and after completing a course of study in CAD, computer-aided drafting. Throughout the years, Ed secured many different and interesting mechanical design contracts and his expertise was much sought after by companies specializing in government contracts and private industries.

An extremely kind and generous man, Ed would never hesitate to help his family and friends at a moment’s notice. While living in Colorado, Ed had established a wonderful group of close friends. One weekend, Ed volunteered to help his friends move a friend of theirs. As luck would have it, the person being moved was named Diana. Ed, with his fun-loving nature and quick wit, engaged in joshing banter with Diana. That chance meeting and a hard day's work was the beginning of Ed and Diana's life's journey together. In June, 1991, they married in the beautiful mountains of Colorado.

Ed was a true outdoors man, enjoying all the different activities of the seasons. From scuba diving to taking long rides on his motorcycle, Ed enjoyed being outside with nature. Hunting during the fall season was an activity he eagerly looked forward to and enjoyed with his dad and family over many years.

Diana and his stepdaughter Virginia were his world! Being together with dear friends and family celebrating each day to the fullest was always desired and sadly ended too soon.

Ed is lovingly survived by his dear wife of twenty-six years, Diana (Hamilton) Yauneridge, of Woburn. Cherished son of Michael and Constance Yauneridge of Sidman, PA. Lovingly devoted stepfather of Virginia Lavender of Nashua, NH. Dear brother of Joseph Yauneridge, his wife Florence of Windber,PA, Mary Ann Smith, her husband Jeffrey of Ebensburg,PA, Robert Yauneridge, his wife Shari of Virginia Beach, VA, Deborah Coleman, her husband Miles of New Bern, NC, James Yauneridge, his wife Susan of Duncansville, PA, Michelle Houghton, her husband David of Sidman PA, and Donna DeRosa, her husband Mark of Warrenton, VA. Loving uncle to many nieces and nephews. Also survived by many dear friends and his beloved cats Hemmi and Jake.
