Yvonne...was all about family, a caring daughter, a wonderful mother, the very best wife, an awesome sister, a great nana, and an amazing decorator too, and so much more!!! All of these things in one small but mighty package! At first, for me, she was hard, but she was just being protective of her children, as she should be! I will never forget her words when I was apologizing to her, “get over it”, at first I was hurt, but being a mom also, I understood, she was just doing what she should, being a great mom, and she was right! She wasn’t one to wallow, I liked that about her, and when necessary, she could be one tough cookie, well, I loved that! Initially, to me, that was who she was and although natural for us, considering our relationship, unfortunately, and now regretful, it took us some time to get to know each other! Over 15 years time, & many family gatherings later, I looked forward to seeing and spending time with her, I grew to love her for the warm, giving, loving, caring person she was, she was really quite beautiful, both inside, and out! She had now become part of my family too and all of our families will never be the same without her, she will be forever & dearly missed!!! Yvonne, It was my privilege getting to know and love you, I want you to know, I will love and care for your children, and grandchildren too, as much as possible and as best as I can, sorry, but I’m not the decorator you were! Please know, taken from your words above, we will never “get over it”, not this, not ever!!! I’m so sorry for your suffering, please rest in peace!!!
Love, your friend & family too, Kim

For almost thirty years, I had the incredible privilege of sharing my life with my very best friend and true soulmate, Yvonne Baker. Yvonne passed away peacefully at home with loving family by her side and in her heart. I have spent the past few days trying to find the right words, but came to realize there are no words that could properly express the love we shared or the grief and emptiness that comes from losing someone so engrained in my everyday life and who I am. I am thankful for every single memory, simple moment, and loving embrace that we shared. I will forever cherish the family that we share and will always see glimpses of you in your children, grandchildren and people whose lives you touched.

Until we meet again.....all my Love, all my Life, for you my Darling Wife.

Every morning for the past 12 years (since leaving home) I have called my mother at 8 AM, We spoke about everything and anything, nothing was off limits. Most of the time the conversation was both nonjudgmental, and mental, but it was exciting, and therapeutic at the same time.

I still take the time every morning to set 15 minutes aside to talk to her, let her know how I feel, and ask for guidance, and I still feel her presence. I can hear her voice as clearly as if she were standing right behind me “yaaaaaaaah”. Those who knew my mom, know this one word could mean 1000 different things, depending on the mood she, or you were in. like this phrase, my mom’s belief was not to allow evil people or events influence your path forward, if there was a will, she would find the way.

Well mom, today is very "yaaaaaaaah". Nothing here on earth could ever replace the special type of joy you brought to my life. So much of your personality is within me, and my children. This gives me comfort that your legacy will carry forever on in future generations.

Rest in absolute peace mom.

I Love You.

As I followed the long journey with your family lifting Yvonne in prayer for a healing I now see that the heavenly Father did heal her and brought her to himself. May your family and friends find comfort in that they too can see her again one day. You will be in our prayers still as you go through this time of longing and grief.
Love~ Uncle Doug and Auntie Barbie

My Dearest Friend Yvonne-I am so sorry you had to leave us so soon. I will always treasure the special friendship we had and will miss you terribly. It is comforting to know you are at peace now, that's what helps me get through my days. Knowing that you are taken care of and are a pure angel with no sickness. Thinking back who would of thought that a piece of furniture would have brought together two crazy people. we were meant for each other. I knew that the first day we spent two hours on the phone, not even knowing each other. I am truly grateful for that day...I found my best friend and new sister. I know your up there telling everyone "ok this is how were going to do things around here" I can just picture it and that makes me smile.. You touched my life in many ways always kind, generous and always there for me. Throughout my life you were such a blessing.. and I am so sorry you had to go through all of this. I believe god chose you because he needed help, that's what I tell myself and that saddens me, There was so much we were supposed to do, we talked about it all the time, becoming millionaires just to name a few. All those trips to Semi and Mohegan we were so coo coo, but we loved it! I must say I will never find a more special, loving friend that I found in you. I understand you had to go , so until we meet again, I pray you are full of Joy, Laughter and especially Peace! I will love you forever Yvonne, your Dearest friend Mia
