All Saints Episcopal Church in Chicago

Yvette Hernandez Memorial Fund



Our hearts are broken that Yvette Bidus Hernandez died on January 5, 2017, at the age of 34, after fighting a long and courageous battle against melanoma. She leaves her husband Jason, her four-year-old son Samuel, her parents, her sisters, and many other adoring relatives and friends. She lit up a room, inspiring and transforming others with her kindness, warmth, wit, and generosity. She will be missed tremendously.

In order to assist with medical costs and to support Jason and Sam as they move forward without their beloved Yvette, a memorial fund has been established through All Saints’ Episcopal Church. Tax-deductible donations may be made here through All Saints’ for the Hernandez family.* In addition, checks may be sent to All Saints’ with “Yvette Hernandez memorial” in the memo line. All Saints’ is located at 4550 N. Hermitage Avenue, Chicago, IL, 60640.

A memorial service for Yvette will be held at All Saints' at 11:00am on Saturday, January 14, 2017. A short reception will follow in the adjacent hall immediately after the service. At 2:00pm, attendees are also invited to join family and friends at O'Shaughnessy's (next door to All Saints') for drinks and an extended celebration of Yvette's extraordinary life.


 *Please note that the Hernandez family cannot accept donations from any individual or entity conducting business in the 33rd Ward.
