She leaves many admirers of her selfless, loving, and giving personality. A graduate of Plattsburg High School, Yvonneâ€™s career path started as a waitress, then as one of the original "Rosie the Riveters" during WWII and culminated with a 35 years career at Bank of America's Proof Operations.

Marathon volunteer participation. Yvonne is survived by sister June Jamieson, nephew Brian Bulrice & many nieces and nephews.
