Dear Paul,
I have such fond memories of time spent with Yvonne and Rita over so many years. She fought hard and lived her life to the fullest!! I know she will be missed by all of her family! My deepest condolences to all of you!

To Mr. Mann, Peter, and all of Mrs. Mann's family - we are all saddened to hear of her passing. Though it's been a lot of years gone by, some of our fondest memories were of growing up together on Barthel Ave - playing kick the cans (and always making Scott C. be "it" - lol!), hanging out in your garage being the Bay City Rollers, building forts under your deck in the back yard - all great times. Mrs. Mann was always so sweet and good to us all. Please accept our sincerest condolences from all of the Roy family (Terry & Dan Mason, Steve & Lorraine Roy, Julie Richard & Randy McDowell, and Marge Roy). We will keep you all in our prayers.

My grandmother was a light of pure love. Spending every moment with her all the way to her passing with me and family holding her hand as we said goodbye. Even on her last breath she opened her eyes and smiled and went peacefully. She has been giving me signs and messages every day after her passing. I am so happy her and her daughter have reunited and she’s no longer in pain. She would always tell me “you better treat a woman right or I’ll have to kick you in the tushy” me and my sister became so close with her. We would take care of her up until it was her time. It’s not what you take when you leave this world behind, it’s what you leave behind you when you go. I love forever and always nanny. I miss you so much. Give Debbie a big hug for me 🌙🙏☀️❤️

Uncle Paul so sorry for your loss of Aunt Yvonne I will miss her precious smile that would light up any room. I miss seeing you and aunt Yvonne walking and occasionally catching up on the day to day stuff. Oh the tears we shed both happy and sometimes sad ones. (It seemed it was our thing). Yvonne always seem to understand the sensitive side of each of us. She said to me when I was a young woman "Always be true to yourself, it's all that matters." Aunt Yvonne you're now with Debbie, and my dad Norman I know you are at peace. Jo

I’m so sorry to hear about Yvonne, she definitely was one of the best friend I ever had. Will be thinking of you all.

Mr. Mann & Peter, I'm so sorry to hear about Mrs. Mann. My favorite times with her & Debbie were when she would dance with us to Shaun Cassidy and Leif Garrett then she would make us something to eat. I'm praying for your family! Hugs

So many wonderful memories of fun times with “Mrs. Mann” during our kindergarten years.

She will be truly missed
