Fitzback and his wife Michelle, and Kenneth Groh. She will be especially missed by her nephews John and Michael Fitzback who shared a special bond with her, as well as many other nieces and nephews. Everyone who knew Yvonne liked her and she will be missed by many, but none more than her dear friend, traveling companion and “sister”, Carol Staniford.
