I am so very sorry to hear of Yvonne's passing. I worked with her at Hunton, and she was always one of my favorite people to see in the halls or lunchroom. When I was fresh out of school and starting my first "real job" at Hunton over a decade ago, she made me feel comfortable and helped show me the ropes. She brought joy with her everywhere she went. She will be sorely missed. My condolences to the family.

My thoughts and prayers for the family. I worked for one year with Yvonne at Hunting Williams. She helped train me and became a friend. I've thought of her many times over the years.

Tyler and Christopher, I am so sorry about the loss of your parents. Yvonne and I were in school together for many years and we´re good friends. When the family moved to Mechanicsville we lost touch but would see each other in different places from time to time. Her loss has reached many hearts because she was such a sweet person. You will all be in my prayers as you navigate these hard times. They will always be by your side. Y´all are very blessed to have had such a beautiful mom. God bless and give you comfort.
