To Yvonne’s family — Yvonne was a gracious lady and true friend. I had the priviledge of working with Yvonne for 10 years at the “home” and she never once entered the doors without a smile on her face. She was and showed the true meaning of “life” and showed me how to tackle any problem head on and made me realize no fight is too hard to be won. Yvonne fought her battle for years until finally her body grew tired and she just wanted to rest. So rest my dear cousin , you deserve it , and know you will always be remembered and live in our hearts .
Yvonne in one word was” inspirational”.I have known her since I was in diapers.She has always been a quiet light ,that never cast judgment or felt the need to be anything but sweet..I have watched in the past years ,as she endured so so much loss..,But always found a way with the love of her family to push on.S he has three wonderful children that she has so enjoyed,and been apart of. Her beautiful grandchildren that meant so much to her.
In recent years was able to find love again..I know that she is now finally in heaven watching over all of them ,and saying how thankful, she was to have all of these great things during her life..I will never forget the kindness she has always shown to me,and i send all
of my love and prayers to all of you….
with all my love

Steven Ringer and Family
To all of Yvonnes’ family our hearts go out to you at this time of sorrow.
Natasha, Trena, Benji, Roger, Kristina, and extended families,
I was shocked to hear of Yvonne’s passing, even though I was aware of her struggle. It didn’t seem like she would ever leave us, but what a legacy she has left. Anyone who knew her will always remember her sweetness and the enormous courage that she silently portrayed. She was such a great example to all of the students she mentored at North Queens Nursing Home, and a treasured caregiver to residents there.
I’m sure you will feel her strength in these difficult days.
So sorry to hear of Yvonne’s passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this most difficult time.
Rest in peace my dear cousin! You will never be forgotten and will forever be remembered.
My thoughts and prayers are with all of you at this difficult time. Yvonne showed all who knew her what it was to have courage and strength to keep going on – and always with a smile. She took whatever was put before her and never complained. Yvonne will live in our hearts forever God Bless You all
To Yvonnes family,
Please know that we have lost a good friend and a person we
not only loved but were amazed by her couage and strength. She fought a great battle. I got to know and love Yvonne while working with her. She was always the same andv treated her resident with respect and a lot of tlc. To her children you had one of the best mothers and she always was at her best when she spoke of you with so much love. So from Leigh, Cathy and our family we send our love to you all. I will miss my friend and never forget her.

Wanda and Glenn MacNutt
Glenn and I want to express our deepest most sincere sympathy to Yvonne’s family. Yvonne to me was a mentor, someone that if some day I can become only half the person she was I will be truly blessed. She had a piece of each and every genuine quality, never fake, never over rated. She was just Yvonne, smart, funny, honest, sincere, brave, dedicated, trustworthy, and the list could go on and on. I cherish the past 10 years that I really had the chance to get to know Yvonne. Working with her was a true honor.
Yvonne will surely help you all through these difficult times that lye ahead, she is a powerful woman, whether it be here on earth or from above she will see that her family is taken care of. She always has and always will.
