We have many wonderful memories of you and Don. You looked after us so well many years ago when we spent time at your house in Woodley, so much so that we even stayed on for dinner in the garden the next day. We shared many stories with you and always remembered how kind you were to us.

Thinking of you all at this sad time.
love Maria, Siobhan, and Laura (Donnelly)

We have such fond memories that we will treasure forever; the wonderful weekends we spent together over so many years. We enjoyed New Year Celebrations, where we sang, laughed, and danced waiting for each new year to begin.

You were a beautiful, radiant bride and I remember when we both went looking for our wedding dresses late shopping on a Thursday night in the West End. We had such great fun which is such a precious memory.

Yvonne, I will treasure these memories and many more forever.
Don and family, our love, thoughts, and prayers are with you.
Patsy and Gerry Donnelly.

Thank you all for your kind words and support, which helped us all through a difficult, but also joyful, celebration of Mum’s life.
For those of you who managed to join us in Bognor Regis, your tears and your smiles will stay with us for a long time, although Mum would only have noticed the smiles…
For those unable to attend, we felt your presence and support in our hearts and I’m sure Mum will have felt the same. The service is still available to view for anybody who wishes to do so.
I’ll leave you now with love from Dad, Lisa, Barry, Martin and myself… And a reminder that there’s always time for a smile, as Granny’s nine wonderful grandchildren show us…



With love and fond memories❤

So sorry for your loss Donal & family. Yvonne was a great co-host with Donal when we visited with Mum & Dad and a great guest when the visits were in Cork, many happy memories. The London Irish vs Munster game in Reading springs to mind. Oisín & Eoghan Kelly



Though I never met Yvonne, I know from Barry and Ian she was a very special lady that will be very sorely missed. Much love to all the family,

Mary O'Connell and family


You (and Don) have been such fantastic friends of our family for many, many years and we've had some amazing laughs along the way. It's so sad you've been taken from us so suddenly, and our loving thoughts are with Don and all the family. You'll be remembered for your great laugh, particularly when enjoying a cool babycham stirred with a cherry of course, but most fondly for being a beautiful, loyal and most helpful friend. Rest in Peace Yvonne.
Love Mary O'Connell and family

Yvonne was so kind. Always smiling, laughing and trying to feed me. I have very happy memories of being at the O’Donovans and I am sure Yvonne will be sorely missed by all that knew her.

Richard and the Mintern family


So many happy memories with Yvonne all the way back to watching the trains from the back garden in Willesden - she was loved by everyone and will be sadly missed.

Memories of “There you go baby, here am I…” how we laughed and sang and danced along to Buddy Holly, can’t that out of my mind thinking of you lovely Yvonne and the great holidays and parties and always the most relaxing time together. You were a wonderful friend. Leave the vegetables to someone else now and rest. All my love Betty and all the Mintern family xxx



So sorry for your lost. She was a special lady.
