Yvette had a talent and passion for sewing and decorating from an early age and worked with many decorator’s across the state as a custom drapery seamstress.

So sad that another of the beautiful and talented "Maillet" sisters has left us. Each one that leaves causes a sadness and emptiness in our hearts. Will always enjoy the free concerts at the Cape with you, Red and Claudette. Miss you but say hello to our loved ones when you see them. Love, Veto
