Barb Yutrzenka

Caring Outreach Ministry


Barb Yutrzenka was born at Larson Air Force Base, Moses Lake WA, where my father was stationed as an Air Force pilot and my mother was a part time realtor and ) full time at-home mom. For the next 20 years my family lived in and traveled across several states and foreign countries. When my father retired, my parents returned to their home state of Minnesota while I finished my undergraduate studies at Wake Forest University in North Carolina. After graduation, I attended graduate school in clinical psychology at the University of North Dakota. This is where I met my husband, Jerry, who was a graduate student in Physiology. After completing our doctoral degrees, getting married, and pursuing additional training and work in Houston TX and Richmond VA, we moved to Vermillion SD where for 38 years we lived, raised our two sons, Christopher and David, and worked as faculty/administrators at the University of South Dakota. In June 2022, we decided to make a post-retirement move to South Carolina to be closer to our sons, daughter-in law and two granddaughters (and, as an added benefit, to avoid the SD winters!). When not spending time with family, I enjoy road trips with Jerry, as well as reading, roller skating (quads, not inline), beading ornaments, and playing mahjong, dominoes, and cards. As a member of Eastminster Presbyterian Church, I have enjoyed my involvement in the choir, GOAL, and women’s circle, as well as participation in adult education classes and BUILD. Through this involvement, my faith has deepened as has my interest in, and commitment to, an expanded involvement in church leadership and activities. I feel blessed to have found such a welcoming and faith-filled community and I am honored and humbled to be nominated to serve on the Eastminster Session.
