  15. So sad that Yvonne has passed although the long ordeal is over and she is at peace. I’ve known Yvonne since I was a teenager and I was 16 years old when she and Hank got married. We shared so many experiences over their 65 years of marriage. She was more like a sister to me than a sister-in-law. I will miss her deeply.

  16. Dear Yvonne, so sorry to hear of your passing. You left us with many happy memories of the times that we spent together, especially with the 102nd gatherings. May you rest in peace now and know that your presence here was loved by many.

  17. We are sorry to hear of Yvonne’s passing. She was real force in helping start the 102nd reunions and always the perfect ” hostess” . She was the quiet mover behind the scenes who made sure things went smoothly and that everyone was comfortable and enjoying themselves. We’ve missed her these past few years and will continue to honor her memory. Aaron & Shelly Shatkin
