Yoland Porter McInelly, 76, was reunited with her sweetheart Dave, surrounded by her children, on January 5, 2019, in Mesa, AZ.  She was born on March 13, 1942 in Richfield, Utah, the last child to Roland and Mina Haws Porter.  She married Dave C. McInelly, April 11, 1960 in Escalante, Utah.  The marriage was solemnized December 4, 1965 in the Mesa Arizona Temple.  He preceded her in death July 11, 2010.

Yoland had a great sense of humor and was extremely talented with cooking, sewing, crocheting, cake decorating, crafting and painting.  She was always easy to visit with and a true friend to many.  She was proud of her heritage, and had a strong testimony in the restored Gospel of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Yoland is survived by her sons: David Shane, Derrick (Elizabeth), Jarrod; daughters: Jody (Kay) Brooks, Andrea (Dale) Rogers, Krystal (Chad) Porter, Amy (Denver) Wilkins; 27 grandchildren and 17 great-grandchildren who will cherish their memories of her.  Also survived by her brother, Bob Porter.

She is preceded in death by her parents; three older brothers and three older sisters.

  • So sorry to see Yoland has passed away. Knowing her she’s probably glad to be reunited with Dave. I so loved David and Yoland. I was their home teacher before Dave and I served together in the Bishopric. Hope the family will always know how much they were loved by their parents and grandparents.
