Yvonne was a beautiful soul inside and out. She would light up a room with her presence. She always wore a smile and reminded each of us to live better, to love and laugh more. Her life was filled with family and friends; and her family and friends were filled with life by knowing her. She never walked into a shop, grocery store, or business that she didn't leave without having met a new friend for life. She was one of those rare people that could lift others effortlessly. Anyone that knew her loved her instantly. Her gracious spirit, love for others and her passion for life will be missed by all who were blessed to know her.
