Maria Yvonne LyBurtus, 65, passed away May 26, 2021 at home. Von was preceded in death by her parents, Donald Dwayne and Gloria LyBurtus; a sister, Brenda McBeth and a brother, Donald Dwayne LyBurtus Jr.
She was born April 24, 1956 in Bellefontaine, Ohio.
Maria, or “Von” as she was so affectionately called, raised her three children in Bellefontaine. She and her oldest son, Dyondo LyBurtus ultimately settled in Columbus, Ohio. Dyondo lovingly cared for Von until her passing. Von enjoyed the simple things in life such as a phone call or visit with friends and family and enjoyed her three children, six grandchildren, and two great grandchildren the most. She would assign a nickname to each grandchild when they were born; the nicknames often stayed with them into adulthood. Von often traveled to California and South Carolina to visit her children and their families. She loved watching her grandchildren play sports and perform in dance recitals and was their biggest fan. Her infectious laugh and “Von dance” was well known by her friends and family.
Von is survived by her three children, Francesca LyBurtus and husband Tyler, Dyondo LyBurtus, Devon LyBurtus and wife Kristi; six grandchildren, Davante “Poo Bear” Ratleff, Isaac “Boo Boo” Karg, Kayleigh “Lu Lu” Karg, Briana “Bri” Adams, Jaden “Cuddles” LyBurtus, Joey “Angel”LyBurtus; two great-granddaughters, Amora “Mor Mor” Ratleff, Elliana “Ellie” Ratleff; sisters, Lacretia LyBurtus Jackson, Kathy Ferguson and husband Billy, LaTonya LyBurtus Vickers; a sister-in-law, Linda Vermillion LyBurtus; a brother, Jerry LyBurtus and many nieces and nephews.
