Yvette  is the definition of the word love. She loved her family with her whole heart and soul. Yvette served her community for years through her work as a manager of Unicel cell phone company. Upon her retirement, she and her sister, Sharon, started “ Two Sisters Cleaning Service” where she worked until she was no longer able, due to the diagnosis of Dementia.
