Yvonne was a retired bookkeeper, a gourmet Indonesian chef, master seamstress and an avid gardener. These skills were invaluable in providing her family the best of amenities in the adventurous and ever-changing life they had chosen. In 1960, she led her family to the greatest country on earth, America, to achieve the American dream. They first arrived in Pittsburgh PA, then Massachusetts, Zachary LA, and finally Grays Creek, NC. Because of Yvonne's selfless dedication, love of Christ and love of America, her family continues to successfully weave a web of success throughout the country and her legacy is thriving.
