Oh, Yvonne, how you will be missed. Many happy memories of you before Michael and I moved to New York.
Think of her fondly.

Oh what sad news! When we lived in Santa Paula we were so blessed to get to know Vonnie, first through the church and then when her Grandsons and our daughters attended elementary school together at Glen City School. When we opened a plumbing business, she was one of our first customers. We had lovely chats about her Christian beliefs and most of all about her family, who gave her so much joy - it shone through her! We have since moved out of the area and lost touch, but our heart mourns for your loss, but sings with happiness that she is home with her God!

I just learned this morning of Vonnie’s death. I am so very sorry for your loss. I enjoyed getting to know her through the years and will miss her smile and sly sense of humor. I will never eat a Hershey bar or see a cardinal without thinking of her. What a loving and gentle spirit! Please accept my heartfelt condolences on your loss.
