born Battle Creek Mi 1921
Torme had a voice
After many failed Marriages,
she was found in 1974
living in a Catholic
rectory in Rhode Island,
as a house keeper.
So much for Show Biz.
She then started interviews and making back some money.
Had a home in Palm Springs.
The Monsters are out there looking for young pretty vulnerable girls.

Yvonne won the prestigious 'Hortt Art Competition Award' at the Museum of Ft.Lauderdale, Florida. This work of art remained on display for several months at the Museum. Over the years Yvonne has entered many competitions winning countless blue ribbons. A trip to Paris, and a stay in Monmarte where she spent time with a few choice artist's changed her views toward her own art work. Art is truly an expression of experience and love to her. She likes her work to show a moment in time or tell a story. To know more about Yvonne Leyden
