She pursued a business career and worked for the First National Bank of Boston. At the age of twenty she won the Miss Cambridge Beauty Pageant.

She enjoyed many activities such as sewing, cake decorating, and horseback riding. Always a competitor she enjoyed playing bingo, bridge and bowling with the “Classy Lassies” team. She worked as a crossing guard and Treasurer for the Wayland Police Department in Massachusetts. She loved watching the Patriots football team and the Boston Bruins hockey team and was Tom Brady’s biggest fan.
She raised 3 beautiful daughters on a farm in Wayland Massachusetts that she named the Tri-H-Ranch in their honor.
She was a woman of deep faith who enjoyed reading her Bible, going to church, teaching Sunday school and vacation Bible school and singing hymns.
Yvonne was an avid and successful businesswoman in real estate development and owned several businesses, hotels and properties in Eastern Massachusetts, Cape Cod and Florida.
