She was born in Norfolk, Virginia and was a member of the lost class of '59 of Granby High School. She studied medical technology after high school, and that brought her to the Eastern Shore in the early sixties to work at NAM hospital in Nassawadox. There she joined the local community and met Earl T. Bagwell. She was an avid bridge player and went on to run the local duplicate bridge club. After the birth of her children, she began a long line of entrepreneurial activities. She was a certified financial planner, an Amway representative, built an apartment building and bought other investment property. In 1987 she spawned her first clam and stayed in the clam aquaculture business until her death. She was a very passionate political advocate. She ran for Northampton Board of Supervisors twice and helped many Libertarian candidates.

Yvonne was a big hearted, outspoken, straight-talking woman who was fierce in her support of her loved ones.
