Colette Aeschbacher Yeaman
Colette Aeschbacher Yeaman passed away doing what she loved on Sunday, June 16, 2013. Colette was born on January 16, 1985 to Lynn and Kelli Aeschbacher in Idaho Falls, ID where she was raised with her three sisters. Colette, also known as “Lettie” by her loved ones, lost her mother Kelli at a young age, but soon received a gift of additional siblings and mother to her life. In 2004, she moved to Utah where she met her beloved husband, Chism and married in July 2005. They have two beautiful sons, Bryson and Dominic. She was an exceptional wife and mother who loved her little family and childhood family with all her heart. She enjoyed every minute of her time with them. She was so adventurous and excited about everything she did; even the simple things were a wonderful adventure. Colette has left her beautiful life here early to join her mother in Heaven. Colette is survived by her husband, Chism and sons, Bryson and Dominic. Parents, Lynn and Marcy Aeschbacher, plus six sisters and one brother. Her in-laws, Mike and Anita Woods, and Charles and Patricia Yeaman, plus four bother-in-laws and 2 sister-in-laws. She was preceded in death by her mother, Kelli. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations to the “Benevolent Account for Colette Yeaman” at any Key Bank. Funeral services will be at 11:30 p.m., Thursday, June 20, in the Grantsville LDS Apple Chapel on Apple Ave. The family will visit with friends from 10:00 – 11:00 a.m. before services in the church.

I was very fortunate to have had Ashlie and Colette in my life as they were my daughter's best of friends. I will always remember the fun times we had at my house with this beautiful girl who was always smiling. Love you Colette and can't wait to see you again.

My dear nephew Chism,

I'm so sorry for the loss of your beautiful wife. I know any words spoken will only bring minimal comfort to you and the boys in this terrible time but I send you all my love and prayers. Colette's looking down on you right now holding your hand and bringing you comfort. I wish I was there to give you and the boys a big hug. Take care and know that she will always be by your side guiding you in raising the boys.

Love Aunt Bernice, Valeri, Shyann, Zena and Diamond.

Dear Lynn and the Aeshbacher Family,

I am so sorry to hear of this tragic loss. I often wonder why some have so much to bare in this life, and I know you have all suffered through more than your fair share of sorrow. I believe with no doubt that Kelli was waiting in Heaven with her arms wide open and that incredibly wide smile on her face when Colette was ushered into her next estate. I pray you receive much comfort and support through the constant companionship of the Holy Spirit and the promise of eternal families. Melanie Ihler Anderson

I am so happy that I got the opportunity to work with Colette for a short amount of time, I liked her right away! she was a beautiful person inside and out! one day I did not have a ride and Colette invited me to go to lunch with her, she talked a lot about you and her boys, I was very sad when I heard about her accident, I could not believe it! she really touched my heart! our prayers are with you and your family, may you find peace and comfort in your boys.

I just heard about Colette and my heart is breaking. I am so sad for your family and especially those two adorable boys. She was a great mother.I wish I would have kept in touch better over the last couple years. I can't imagine the pain you must be feeling but I hope you can fine peace knowing the Plan of Salvation and the love of our Heavenly Father.
