It was my honor to share an office and a weekend rotation at Broughton with Yvonne. She brought excellence to everything she did. Her commitment to patient care and the support of staff was inspiring. So often we enjoyed the generosity of her culinary talents, especially her fabulous pound cakes. A smile always broke across her face when she mentioned Jessi and her entire family. I will treasure her memory and I am so grateful that I could work with her and call her a friend. Deep condolences to her family.
