She was initially Manager of Inflight Services and Catering and appointed shortly afterwards to Manager of crew Planning & Scheduling utilizing the modern electronic software for handling aircraft/crew/company regulations and Union regulation as well as IATA/FAA/ and local CAA.

It rained for 5 hours during the tournament but not enough to close the course so they had to play through. Yvonne won the Senior Ladies First Net and therefore her Name is on the Floating Trophy and she got a beautiful Movado Watch as 1st Net Prize.
Yvonne´s daughter Marie now has 5 kids, the youngest "Joy Grace" is just 14 months old and is a beauty and of course rules the other siblings. This summer they all spent a lot of time visiting and enjoying the pool in Yvonne´s back garden.
Yvonne´s Mom is now 87 yrs - still driving and doing 2 days volunteer work at the hospital and travelling. She will be going over to West Palm Beach to spend Thanksgiving with her niece.
Yvone´s oldest daughter Renee lives in Abaco, at Hope Town. (That's one of the Bahamian islands) and is a chef- she caters to the tourists with wedding receptions and preparing their meals for their entire stay.
