Our mission is to help families of children/teens facing life threatening illness in memory of Noah Paul Yamilkoski.
Our Board is small but mighty. Blessed by God as family and friends. Honored to continue the legacy of Noah.
I live in Urbana with my husband, Roger and we have two grown children Connor and Mackenzie. With the kids out of school our schedule has slowed down and we are enjoying spending more time together and begun to travel. . Spending time with family and friends is our favorite way to enjoy our free time and it’s even more enjoyable if we are playing cards. I have been working at Farmers State Bank for over 12 years and truly enjoy my job and coworkers. I have helped with Noah’s Rainbow in the past and feel fortunate to be on the board. My daughter went to school with Noah, so Noah’s Rainbow has always been close to my heart. It is wonderful to see how many families are touched and helped during such a difficult time in their lives.
I live in Toddville, IA with my husband, Andrew, and our two children –Jazmine and Aidan. I love spending time with my family and friends. Most of our free time is spent watching our kids play volleyball and basketball. I also enjoy fishing with my husband and actually “playing” with my kids. We play volleyball, basketball, flag football, ride our four wheelers and swim in our pond all summer long.
In addition to having lots of fun with my family, I have fun at my work! I have worked for Farmers State Bank since 2010. I love my job and I love the people I work for. I feel fortunate every day.
I am passionate about Noah’s Rainbow for so many reasons. The number one reason is because it creates an opportunity for families who are dealing with the biggest fears they will ever have to face to have extra blessings in their life through a Make-a-Wish trip, some extra money to pay bills, or etc at a time when they maybe don’t feel so blessed. If Noah’s Rainbow can lift their burden even a little through a special family trip or financial assistance-everyone’s spirit gets lifted.
I reside in Toddville, Iowa and The Villages, Florida with my husband Paul. I love spending time with our family and friends, and now that I am retired from Rockwell Collins as Senior Director, Commercial & Contracts, have time to enjoy riding my horse, playing golf and Mah Jongg, and doing genealogy research.
Noah is our sweet grandson, the eldest boy of our 13 grand- and great-grandchildren. His laughter, innocence, and kindness were infectious – it was just hard to not smile when you were with Noah. His inner strength was such a positive force for us all. His faith in God and his love of Christ continue to bring me inspiration. Every time I see a rainbow, I know he is smiling down on us all.
Through Noah’s Rainbow, we are continuing the generosity that Noah believed so strongly in, as well as supporting those charities that supported Noah and his family. He so enjoyed swimming with the dolphins as the recipient of a Make-a-Wish gift; he was overjoyed at being the star at the Grady Larson Softball Tournament, and his week at Camp Heart Connection was the highlight of each summer. Noah enjoyed serving at Mission of Hope, and talking to everyone who would listen to him. We strive to further these and similar activities in Noah’s name.
I reside in Center Point, Iowa with my wife Laurie and daughters Lynda and Callie. I am a Jeeper (on my 2nd Jeep Wrangler) and an avid Iowa Hawkeye Basketball and Football fan. I work for TaxAct managing a sales team that assists tax professionals running their businesses. My most important job is being a husband and father. My kids keep my wife and I busy with their various activities including volleyball, dance and swim team. We love the farmers market, being outdoors, hitting a bucket of balls and playing with our two dogs.
We have the privilege of having Noah live across the street from us and was always willing to be a helper. He made insanely awesome Smores! He was an inspiration at church as he had fearless faith. His red curls and huge smile would brighten your day whether you wanted it to or not. He would give anyone the shirt off his back if they needed it.
The most rewarding part of being apart of Noah’s Rainbow for me personally is meeting the families seeing the strength and fight in these courageous children and their families. The love, hope and faith in these families is truly inspiring. My thanks go out to all those who have taken the time to support Noah’s Rainbow in any way, you are truly making a difference in the lives of children in Noah’s image. God Bless.
Praise him in the rain! As Noah’s parents, we live by Noah’s life philosophy to forever praise God even through the rain. For at the end of every storm there is a rainbow reminding us all of God’s promises.
We moved to Lakeland, Florida in 2015 after living in the Center Point, Iowa area for almost twenty years.
Paul works with Heartland Credit as a Regional Sales Manager and Kristi works for Lakeland Regional Health Systems as a Director of Information Services.
The focus our life is our faith, family, and friends. Noah was our middle child and only son. We have two daughters, Tori and Tiffany. Tori and her husband, Vince have two adorable children, Noah and Jocelyn. We love taking advantage the beautiful Florida sunshine with visits to the beach and annual Disney passes!
Our Noah was such an amazing young man and we remember his beautiful smile and curly red locks every day. His courage and strength keep us going. Noah’s Rainbow was created to let his love and passion for helping other live on.
