Over the years my late husband Ron and I have made many trips to Mass. from Calif. We always tried to stop by for a visit with Aunt Yvonne. In August 2018 my daughter Denise and I took a trip to Mass and while there enjoyed a lovely visit with Yvonne. I will always remember her as a sweet caring lady who always made us feel welcome in her home. My condolences to the family. I know you will all miss her. She will never be forgotten.

Your Mom was an all-around generous, spirited, and strong woman with a big heart. Like my sister Linda, I looked forward to our family visits with Aunt Yvonne and Uncle Leo before we moved cross country. I remember fondly how we played in the basement of the previous house, how Nancy and I teased Bob obsessively and Aunt Yvonne would ask us nicely to stop, and the reminiscing by our parents that taught us so much.
The video was beautiful and touched me deeply. Memories flowed.
Aunt Yvonne was unique - inside and out - even as a twin to our Mom. She filled everyone's lives with love. Treasure your memories. Let your grief be comforted by knowing your Mom loved you immeasurably and is very proud of all of you.

Dear Judy, Sue, Nancy, Tina, & Cathy,
I have very fond memories of your mom growing up. I would spend many Saturdays there, sleepover, go to church on Sunday then out for breakfast at Gerriors. She always dressed so nice. Youd never see a wrinkle on her outfits cuz she ironed EVERYTHING! Lol (even sheets and towels).
I had the pleasure of seeing her again at Adams wedding. She looked beautiful as always.
Treasure your memories, I know I will. Love & hugs, Laurine

Dear Cousins and their families your Mom was so special to me, not only because she was my Mom's twin but because she was so kind and generous to our family. I always looked forward to our Gardner visits every other weekend when I was a kid and we lived in Leominster. We'd visit our Grandparents, the Cote's and Delmazzo's and all the Aunts and Uncles in town. I loved to visit your Mom cause her cooking was so good, better than my Mom's even! Also since I was the only girl in my family it was a treat to play with all of you girls. And I know how hard it was on her when we moved to California but I loved when we could visit each other and catch up. My deepest sympathy on your loss but in our last conversation in September she told me how much she loved you all and how grateful she was on the care she got from her girls. May she rest in Peace now as she joins her heavenly family.

Dear Judy, Suzy, Nancy, Tina & Cathy, I'm so sorry to hear about your mom! She was a great woman! My favorite memories of her are when she would take Cathy and I shopping. She had more energy than the Energizer Bunny. I also loved watching her get ready to go square dancing with her big poofy skirts. Lastly, I loved how she'd tease me about different things. I'd always be at her home with Cathy when she came home from work. I miss seeing her over the years but I never forgot her. I'm praying for the family and sending you all big hugs. Sincerely, Lisa
