Yvonne worked for several years as a seamstress for Oshkosh B’Gosh. Fishing was always her passion, and no water was off limits. She enjoyed many memorable fishing trips with Ken, LeRoy, and her boys. She also enjoyed playing slots at the casino, hunting and traveling. Trips to Yellowstone and Arizona were among her favorites throughout the years. Yvonne was a caring woman who always made time for her family and friends.
