    • To Jayne and John,
      Unfortunately we are unable to attend. I’m so sorry Jayne for the loss of your mum Yvonne. Have fond memories coming to see you as school friends and your mum was always happy and provided many afternoon teas. More so when you lived in Clyde. I know how you have looked after your mum in her later days. The many trips you had at Lakes Entrance. So sorry Jayne, with my current health I will not be able to attend in person but will definitely view via streaming.
      Yvonne will definitely be missed.

  19. We are all very sad 🙁 We are also very happy that we had the privilege of knowing Yvonne. Our family still talks about how Yvonne welcomed us into her home when we visited Australia in 2012. We had a nice spaghetti dinner! We shall miss you Yvonne…

  20. A ray of sunshine in Pakenham Lions Club. It was lovely being inducted as a member of Pakenham Lions Club by Alan in your home in Clyde.
    Thank you also for your hard work at my 40th birthday party three decades ago.

  21. I have known Yvonne as long as I can remember. Her mother and mine were twin sisters, and very close, and as a result I spent every holiday with her on the farm at Trafalgar. She always made the world a brighter place. Without her the world will have a little less sunshine.
