Yolanda was born on February 6, 1922, in Rio Oso, California. She attended Gridley Schools and graduated from Gridley High School in June 1940. In 1941 Yolanda met Raymond Shaeffer, the love of her life, and they married in November that year. They celebrated 75 years of marriage prior to the death of Raymond. Yolanda cherished her husband and family, and she enjoyed attending events and activities that her loved ones were involved in.

She encouraged her love of travel in her grandchildren.
