Yahir Corona

Our beautiful angel Yahir Corona, age 11, went home to his Heavenly Father on May 4, 2019, at 8:35 a.m. Yahir was born January 17, 2008, and was the oldest of four children.  His family did not know then that he would be destined to teach the world about grace, humor and the strength of never giving up. Yahir showed all who knew him what a warrior is capable of accomplishing.  Yahir loved to joke with everyone he met -- especially his siblings. That sense of humor shined brightest during his battle with cancer.   

Like other 11-year olds, video games, Legos, and sports were among his favorite things to do. Yahir was a true warrior and fought Osteosarcoma with bravery, grace, and positivity. He inspired and touched everyone he met and always offered a smile and kind words. He had tremendous faith in God and we know he is with our Heavenly Father.

Yahir Corona is survived by his mother, Erika; father, Orlando; and siblings Andres, Jesus and Kimberly. He is also survived by his grandparents, uncles, aunts and numerous cousins and friends. He is preceded in death by his half-sister Cristal Suriht Corona Campos and special friend Elias Gamez.

Rosary will be May 17 at Barnes Chapel in Brewster, Wash., from 4-8 p.m. The funeral will be May 18 at 9 a.m. at Our Lady of The Valley in Okanogan. Burial will follow at Locust Grove Cemetery in Brewster.  Everyone is invited to a dinner at Brewster High School Following Burial.

Please leave any thoughts and memories for the family at www.barneschapel.com.  Barnes Chapel of Brewster is entrusted with services.
