Yvonne and I met in the early 1990's when I joined the New Orleans Weavers Guild. She was so gracious and kind and willing to help with any problems or projects. She was a wonderful weaver, spinner and knitter.

In the last few years, Yvonne and I traveled to out of town events for the numerous weaver's guilds and to our regular monthly meetings.

She always had a smile and loved to laugh.

I will miss her greatly and I have always considered her one of my best friends.
