In Memoriam – Yvette Costa Garnier (March 08, 1949 – December 08, 2012)

Sadly, we announce that Yvette Garnier (age 63), wife of André Garnier, passed away on Dec 8. Both had been involved with the Citroén community for years, hosting an annual gathering in Florida and if you were at the ICCCR in Amherst there was a display showing the history of André’s shop and cars.

Yvette Garnier passed from complications from cancer after returning from France this summer.

For many years André and Yvette enjoyed living in Clermont, Florida with annual trips to France where Yvette would sing at professional engagements. While in Florida, Yvette taught foreign languages at the local high school in Clermont where her students came to know her as a wonderful teacher, opening the world outside of the U.S. to them through their studies.

You can express condolences by posting a message at the funeral home web site:

Or, if you would like to send a card to André at his home address please contact me for that info.
