Yeutter was born on Nov. 30, 1993, at Ord to Bill and Michelle (Hupp) Yeutter. In 1999, she and her family moved to Cozad where she attended school. Since birth, she struggled with her health due to her disability. By age 17, she had undergone a myriad of major surgeries and braved countless illnesses.
Despite her physical struggles her spirit never faltered; she was a fighter. Her demeanor would brighten the days of all who came to know her, family members said.
Despite her physical encumbrances, she was adept at communicating love to those around her. She cherished hugs, kisses, music, and being read to. She also enjoyed her pet cat. She will be remembered for her happiness, strong spirit, forgiving nature, and her tremendous capacity to love, the family said.
Yeutter was preceded in death by her paternal grandparents, paternal great-grandparents and maternal great-grandparents.
