This page is to celebrate the life of Yvonne Hurcombe, who sadly lost her battle against Cancer on 7th September 2008.

The selfless bravery of the RNLI was something she admired through the whole of her life and it was her express wish that any money that would have been spent on flowers at her funeral be donated to the organisation.

Yvonne was the loving wife of Fred Hurcombe for 53 years; Mother to Yvonne, Lorraine, Melanie and Douglas, and Grandmother to Becky & Ellie Fewings, Jenny & Shaun Poke, Annie & Thomas O'Kane and Morgana Hurcombe-Brewer.

She will be sadly missed but greatly celebrated.

Added by: Douglas Hurcombe on 12 September 2008.
