She was born in New York City, New York, on December 30, 1930 to the late Elek (Alex) Koroskenyi and Yolanda Munkascy.

Yolanda is remembered as a loving, smart-witted, hard-working wife and mother who retired and moved to Hernando, Florida with her companion of 24 years, Tony Yaskulski. She was a dancer in her young days, dancing in Hungarian Folk Dance clubs in New York City. She loved to play Mexican Train, Poker and Farkle with her friends and neighbors at Canterbury Lake Estates, Hernando, Florida. She and Tony enjoyed many travels, many times with her son Lance and his wife, Irene. She was very proud of her home in Florida, and enjoyed her friends and family as they came to visit. She moved to Wilmington, North Carolina in 2015.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Stanley T. Czerw; their daughter, Nancy C. Zickmund; and her loving companion of 24 years, Tony Yaskulski.

She is survived by sons Lance Williges (Irene) and Paul Czerw (Kaye); brother Alex Koroskenyi (Carol), beloved nephews Stanley “Stash” and Steve Skoczylas (Gwen); grandchildren Ashley Graz (Gerry), Josh Zickmund, Sandra Godin (Matt), Ian Czerw (Jessica); great-grandchildren Evan and Nolan Graz, Kaya Czerw and Will Godin, as well as many other nieces and nephews.

The family would like to give our sincerest appreciation and love to the family of Tony Yaskulski who loved her like their own mother and grandmother, their good friends and neighbors in Florida, Anna and Angelo Lombardi, and the staff and nurses at Morningside of Wilmington and Liberty Hospice for their excellent care in the last year in Wilmington.
