This is about all I’ve found for Yolande Annie.  I know that she went by Yo and loved yellow roses and that she was a pretty strict parent and grandparent but she loved purely and deeply.  If you knew her or are related to her and would like to share some memories of how Yolande’s life inspired yours, please don’t hesitate to leave it in the comments section below.

As always, I’ll update this post as I find additional information for Yo.

Talk soon,
