We at Northern Lights Community Development Board and Staff are deeply saddened with the loss of our Elder Yvonne Longjohn who passed on February 4, 2021. It is difficult to know that we will no longer enjoy her company, but we are grateful for all the wonderful memories we have with the time we spent with her.
We will miss her sincerity. We will miss her genuine kindness. We will miss her guidance and; We will miss her wisdom. Elder Yvonne Longjohn joined the NLCDC Board in 2008 as our Elder.
Elder Yvonne inspired us to be mindful and do our best in each of our roles as board directors and as employees at NLCDC. She encouraged us and reminded us often to adhere to our vision and our four fundamental principles of: Equity, Transparency, Accountability and Integrity.
With love and respect we honor Elder Longjohn. From the NLCDC Board and Staff
