You didn't give any dates for those in your query. So, I went looking for William buried in the Restlawn Memorial Park. It showed he was born 1907, then went looking at census for 1910 and got dates for George and Maude and where they were born, that helps to narrow search on index. Informant for George was Sybil Farr, there is a daughter named Sibyl[sic] on the 1910 census, this would give you her married name.

Informant on Maud's DC was Lorena Marsh and it specifically says she is the daughter, assume she's the Lorena Yates on your list.

Do you have anything on Sidney?

This looks like a match to the daughter named Mildred on the 1910 census, mother's maiden name misspelled.
