I join hundreds of youth and Montgomery Symphony members in remembering Yvonne and her faithfulness to the Music and organizations that we love. Our relationship goes back decades to she and her young family and a time when she wanted to conduct and had not yet begun. I extend my love and appreciation to the entire family, and hope that you are comforted by this wonderful legacy she has left us all.
Joanna Bosko, Viola
