She graduated from Green Mountain Junior College in Vermont and SUNY Cortland. After college, Yvonne worked for the Dairyman's League in New York City, for 2 years. She and Fred were married August 28, 1954 in Richfield Springs, NY.

Yvonne and her dear friend, Jane Pritchard Murphy successfully co-directed a number of theme dinner dances to raise funds for Tioga County Boys & Girls Club.

Dear Fred, Joel, Michael and Jane

We are so shocked and saddened to learn of Yvonne's passing. So many fond memories are flooding into my mind....it seems like yesterday we were together at EEB.

She was a great lady and I am so happy that we got a chance to see her this summer at the Dick's Open, catch up and reminisce.

She loved you all with all of her heart - her family meant the world to her. Please accept our condolences. We will pray for your peace and comfort.

Mike- I am so sorry for the loss of your mom. Moms give and love so unconditionally, they shape our lives and leave their imprint in our hearts....forever. Treasure the memories and stories that people share with you this week. Some may be ones you've never heard before. I will pray for all of you, as this will be a tough few days. Let your faith transcend and know that her spirit is with you.
