John I'm so sorry to hear about Yvonne. The fun times at the pool with your mom, dad, John & Lillian DuFrane, and my parents. It was nice living only a block away from you and Yvonne in Bucknell Manor, Alexandria, VA. I will always keep her in my thoughts.

To a beautiful lady inside and out. You were truly one of the good ones. Your love of family, kindness and compassion inspired me. We could go for a very long time and not see each other, but when we did it was like we had just talked the day before. You will be missed.

My sincere condolences to John, Cheri , Sean , and all family of Yvonne's. Many memories of good times shared in the 70s and 80s with all of you especially at the Outer Banks. Yvonne was a beautiful person from the inside out. She never had a harsh word or judgement of anyone. She was a truly lovely person I was fortunate to know and call a friend.
RIP Yvonne until we meet again!

A life well lived with a beautiful and loving family. Thank you for the memories, your kindness, and the years of enjoyment. Even when we showed up (a little) dirty and sweaty from the soccer field, you still managed to tolerate us with a warm welcome and knowing smile. From all of us Flip's to the McAllorum clan, Rest in Peace, Yvonne.

Aunt Yvonne.
I at a loss. Personally you were my Aunt. My pen pal and a light to all around you. I am lucky to have grown up with not just one strong woman in Mom's battle with cancer but two strong women who have had a major influence in my life. Watching after a treatment not only going out to dinner with us as we visited but dancing with the love of your life Uncle Gerard. When you and Mom got together, there was always smiles and laughing. You listened to me as I wrote often always ending it with i love you.
Well Aunt Yvonne, I love you and williss you terribly. My memories of the past years will stick with me from dancing, to casino's to long long talks.
Rest now the pain is over and you are in God's hand as you went through the express elevator straight to heaven.

Loving and missing you
Your nephew Kevin.
