Yvette del Carmen Perel Marquis was born on July 12, 1960 to Ameilia and Eddie. She was the first granddaughter of Sylvia and Antonio. Eddie, Nennen, Daddy Renee and a whole host of ancestors welcomed Yvette on August 30th, 2021. The knowledge that she is with them brings us solace. 
Yvette was born and raised in Harlem, THE PROUD, self-declared Queen of Panama, known as Goldie in her youth because she always wore gold. 
Yvette was educated at Our Lady of Lourdes, Sacred Heart of Mary, and Pace University. For many years, Yvette worked at Harlem Children's Zone as a caseworker. Her latest position was at HeartShare Human Services of New York as a Direct Support Professional. Discovering her calling late in life, Yvette took pride in her work and role as a caretaker. There was always a story about the people in her care that kept us laughing. She talked about them as if they were her children, with so much pride and joy. 
Yvette loved her family fiercely and was a very protective big sister to Paulette and Annette. She considered her three beautiful, unique, and lovely children Damaris, Dimitrius, and Daryannos, the best part of her life. They were her most treasured possessions. 
Yvette was a voracious reader and read every book she could get her hands on. Her favorite meal was pork chops, white rice, and apple sauce. Her favorite drink was Piña colada.
Yvette is survived by her loving mother, Amelia; her children Damaris, Dimitrius, and Daryannos; her bonus mom Carmen Doyle; her sisters Annette, Paulette, Judith, and Nadia; her brothers Delano and Mario; and her nieces and nephews Angelo, Danny, Darien, Delano Jr., Donwhel, Eddy, Eduardo, Gloria, Julio, Richard, Valesia, and Zena.  
Yvette, we miss you dearly. There aren't enough words to express how much we miss you. There is a hole in our hearts. What we wouldn't give to hear you laugh one more time.
