Sara Bomboy Yelson, 87, passed away on Monday, October 28, 2019 at Lakeview Regional Hospital in Covington, La. She was a longtime resident of the New Orleans Area until Hurricane Katrina, and has resided in Mandeville for 15 years.
Born February 22,1932, she was the daughter of the late Willie Bomboy and Harold Bomboy. Sara was preceded in death by her husband Waldi K Yelson and is survived by her two daughters, Karen (Ray) Castrinos and Kim (Jay) Sabrier; grandchildren, Dustin Castrinos, Craig Castrinos, Kevin Castrinos, Ashley Sabrier, Jayson Sabrier and great grandchildren, Jolie’ Paris and Cooper Castrinos.
Sara was a registered nurse at Touro Infirmary working different units throughout the hospital during her 40 years employed there.
After retiring from Touro at age 62, Sara spent the next 14 years embracing her passion for gardening by beginning a new career working for Interior Gardens where she cared for the plants and gardens at many businesses throughout New Orleans and the Northshore.
But for those who ever spent even a minute talking to Sara, they knew her greatest enjoyment throughout her life was her pure love of being out in the surf, fishing. She lived for the days when she would spend endless hours off the beaches of Grand Isle, La where she had a camp and later on, the coast of Gulf Shores, Al., fishing. In fact, she was fortunate enough to spend a week just last month back in the surf enjoying her last visit to her camp in Grand Isle doing what she enjoyed the most.
Relatives and friends are invited to attend a funeral service on Saturday, November 2, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. at Garden of Memories Funeral Home, 4900 Airline Drive, Metairie, LA 70001. Visitation will be held prior to the services beginning at 9:00 a.m. until service time. Interment will follow in Garden of Memories Cemetery.
