Uncle Don, you and Aunt Yvonne will always have a special place in my heart. You took me in after I got out of the Army in 1981 until I figured out what to do with my life. I have too many fond memories to share them all here. I remember Aunt Yvonne always making sure we would have dinner together and have our little chats. My deepest respect and love, your nephew.

Don, Kim and Don Jr. My thoughts are with you and your families at this time of great sorrow. There was no kinder sweeter person than Yvonne. She was also such a great friend and neighbor to our family and for this I will always be greatful. You can be sure there is a new angel up in heaven and she will be smiling down on her family. Always remember how blessed you all are to have had her in you life.

Don, Yvon was such a beautiful woman, with a big heart. I'll always remember her humor and working with her added so much to my ability to work in the legislative zoo. I am sorry, you lost a loving partner, you were her hero. You and your kids were blessed, may the good Lord continue to be with you all.

Dear Don, Kim and Don

My heart goes out to you all with the passing of Yvonne. She was such a wonderful, loving & caring person.
I can just visualize her and mom having a cup of coffee up in heaven and catching up on old times.
She will be greatly missed.

I first met Yvonne when I was 10 years old. My sister Kay Stoner, lived with Yvonne, Donna and 2 other young women in Mpls in 1952 in a shared apartment. They called themselves the 5 S's. All their last names began with the letter S. Yvonne would come home with my sister Kay up to Siren, WI where we lived on a small farm. Yvonne was wonderful to me, putting up with childish pranks, etc. I always hoped someday to be old enough to join them as they went off to dances and movies. Later, after they married Don and Yvonne would come up to visit Kay and Ken and I enjoyed listening to the many colorful stories they had to tell. You have my deepest sympathy.
