Thanks for posting the narrative, Linda.  Just for fun, I am 
reproducing your list with the ones I grew or knew personally deleted-
-your yellow MAY be one of the remainders.  Most of them are the 
wrong color for your yellow, however.  These are the ones I DON'T 
know first hand:
> Patrician Nesmith for H. F. Hall '53 White, overlay of yellow on  
fall, yel. bd.
> Apricot Dancer Luella Noyd '58 Orange-apricot self, tang. bd.
> Frilly Fringes Bro. Chas. Rekamp '56 CREAM WITH LIGHT YELLOW HAFT
> Persia--not listed 1940 ff.  May be pre '40
> Lovely Letty D. Hall '64 Violet-blue self, tangerine bd.
> Theodolina --before 1940--check HIPS photos.  Seems to me I saw it 
> Broadway Star R. Schreiner R '57, S. cream/F. rose-magenta
> Quicksilver R. Schreiner, R '50, pale silver blue
> Dark Mood Buss R '49 Dark red-purple self from Sable
> Masked Ball Buss R'49 "W2D"--blue on white plicata
> Hiawatha Hartkopf R'64, Garnet-brown self
> Wild Ginger Gibson '60, plicata

which of the above is it?

The only possible candidate I see in the list is FRILLY FRINGES.  
Looks possible from the form, character of the bloom.  It 
isn't "Frilly" by current standards, but is in keeping with its time.
