Our sincere condolences to Aunt Yvonne's family. Aunt Yvonne was a very special lady. She worked hard throughout her life but always had time for family and friends. We have so many fond memories of family gatherings with Aunt Yvonne and Uncle Freddie. You are now a "special angel".
We will miss you Aunt Yvonne.

My deepest sympathy to you all. I shall always remember mom and dad as their doors were always open and they included us to all the get togethers at your home. Your parents were just great people and thank goodness for memories as they will never be forgotten.
I will miss you Yvonne as you were an inspiration to everyone.

My sincerest condolences to the family.
I lived on Oakland Avenue and I had the honour of attending Mrs. Rossnagel's nursery school for 2 years in 1961 and 1962. I remember her as being a very loving and nurturing person. My favourite memory is of her reading to us and I loved the Jack in the Box she always let me play with. (Wonderful Memories!)
