Although we lived on different continents I have many wonderful memories of Yvonne from her visits here and a brief visit to Toronto in the ‘70s. Warm, generous, a good sense of humour and the ability to be positive and upbeat; these are some of the things I associate with her.
RIP, Aunt Yvonne x x

Always a smile, always so gentle, happy and inquisitive of our lives. Yvonne, although living such a distance away managed to make a lasting impression from her visits to the UK. To a very young niece, her Canadian accent seemed so glamorous and her vocabulary so confusing; sidewalk, candy!! But the time between visits just slipped away, once in her presence, as we re-connected with each other. over the decades. She seemed to have such energy and a vitality and lightness of step. Goodnight, Aunt Yvonne. Much love Celia
