Don, We were so saddened to read about Yvonne. Needless to say, we have many fond memories of the years we lived in the apartment at your house. I still have some ceramic pieces that she made for me, and of course some recipes. Yvonne was always so happy and bubbly. We enjoyed seeing you in later years at Savvy and and Salt Fork. Sending our sympathy, Jim and Judy
My condolences to the family. I was about 9yr old when my Grandpa bought me one of their beautiful Morgan Horses, I wanna say his name was JMF Jeremy, I loved going to there. I have often thought about them throughout the years. May she rest in Paradise.
Dear Don. We go back so many years. My heart breaks for you and yet swells with deep pleasure for knowing Yvonne. She was such a caring, positive, happy person, always smiling. I believe it was about 1965 when we met first and from there you and she were there for us when Saira and Becky were born, when Bill was ill, at weddings and funerals, in our girls lives as they grew up. My thoughts are with you and of Yvonne. Please let me know when the services will be held. With love, Judy
Darrel met Don & Yvonne when his family rented the upstairs of their house when he was a very little kid. He thought both of you were the nicest people around! And you were so gracious to let us come over to the house before it was sold and moved so that he could see it again one last time! Thanks for all the great memories.
We met Yvonne in the 70's. We thought then, and also now, she was such a wonderful, happy and caring woman. We loved hearing about her horses. Meeting her somewhere around town would lift our spirits. Rest in peace, Yvonne.
Don, so sorry to hear of Yvonne's passing. She was a true treasure.
My memories date back over 50 years; I remember spending time with my Dad doing electrical work in your home or "her" arena, and vividly recall some very kind words she shared with me when I pumped her gas at the filling station my senior year in high school. Finally culminating a few of years ago as we shared some laughs and a few tears as you both graciously allowed me to help facilitate/negotiate the transfer of the farm to the Solon School District. Her wonderful smile was ageless!
I know first hand the last several years were not always easy but find peace in knowing she is now at peace.
I was so sadden to hear this news. We loved her smiling face when Yvonne and Don brought their dogs to the Groom Station for care. It doesn’t get any better than these two people. Yvonne always had a story that would make you laugh. We would talk horses and dogs. She will be greatly missed. Hugs and prayers to Don and all whom he touched.
