We are so very shocked and saddened to hear of Yvonne's untimely passing. We knew her in Nigeria and have many happy memories of time spent with her during that time. She was a lovely person with a warm and sunny personality that could light up a room. Our sincere condolences go to all her family and friends. Chris and Sue Baker
