In Memoriam...

Yesterday the Omaha office lost one of our beloved staff members. Celinda Yates was an Administrative Assistant who worked with Linn Baer, our Fleet Manager. Celinda has battled multiple illnesses over the years. She suffered from heart problems, several types of cancer and she was diabetic.

Each year, Celinda solicited donations from all of us in the Omaha office so that a family in need would get Christmas presents. This year was no exception. Although her mother passed away on Tuesday of this week, she found time to get the presents purchased. Yesterday she brought the presents into the office so they could be delivered to recipients at the local Open Door Mission, which has many homeless families with small children.

Her mother’s funeral is scheduled for this afternoon so she and her brother went to the cemetery to visit their father’s grave site yesterday. Unbelievably and tragically, Celinda stopped breathing and collapsed at the cemetery and now is reunited with both parents.

Besides working together, Linn and Celinda had a personal relationship. We are all saddened by this loss and our hearts go out to Linn and the entire Yates family.

Celinda was only 45 years old and will be greatly missed by family, friends, and coworkers.

Bernie Tracy,
Regional Vice President
