Yvonne's name brings back good memories of the years we both taught at Lakeshore High School in the late 1950s. She was a good teacher and a good colleague.

We are so sorry to hear of Yvonne's passing. We haven't been in touch in many years, but have good memories of her wit, intelligence and kindness when we spent time together. I especially remember her encouragement as I started my teaching career back in the 1970's. She lived a good life--

I am so very sorry to hear of Ms Maxwell's passing! I am a 1975 graduate of Portage Central High School, and remember her being so supportive of a small group of us who were interested in learning about and discussing Philosophy. She opened her home on Parker Avenue to us, after school hours as there were no high school Philosophy classes at the time. She was very kind, and encouraged us to stretch our minds. I also remembered that she had a fantastic plant of baby's tears in her home. :-) She will be remembered and missed by me. My heartfelt condolences to her family.
