Condolence & Memory Journal

Heartfelt sympathy to the sisters at Presentation of Mary and to Sister Yvette's families. Sister Yvette was loved by all who knew her. I got to know her during the time I worked at the Monastary and I loved her very much. She was a very caring and loving Sister. May she rest in peace. From Pearl Mein and family

I am sad that Sr. Yvette is gone, but happy that the Lord has finally called her home. She was my 9th grade religion teacher at PMA, and a dear friend for the past 35+ years. I loved coming to see her on my trips to NH, and she also enjoyed visiting with my husband and our girls. She radiated God's love and always made us feel special. She will be missed!

Aunt Yvette always had a smile and hug as she greeted each one of us. We know we had many prayers for receiving the Lords blessings, grace and mercy. We will miss you, Aunt Yvette, but it's time for you to receive your heavenly reward.

The news of Aunt Yvette's passing was difficult to hear, but we take comfort in knowing that she led a full life and is again enjoying the company of the family she loved so much. "Thank you Aunt Yvette for all the love and for all the prayers you prayed for your family. We know you are still watching over all of us!"

Aunt Yvette was lucky to have two families. She lived with her religious family but she was so close to ours in many ways. We will always remember how excited she was to see us whenever we met.

Happy memories of Sr. Yvette in Berlin and when I would see her at Biddeford Pool - kind, cheerful woman.
