Yvonne was born in Wauchope, SK on August 15, 1936 and passed away peacefully on July 23, 2022 in Merritt, BC. She was predeceased by her loving husband Elber, who has been patiently awaiting to have her by his side along with two of their daughters, Toni and Lisette, whom they tragically lost. Yvonne leaves behind two sons, Mike (Lynn) and Kelly and two daughters, Giselle and Loree (Jack). Outliving her twin brothers Jack (Wendy) and Bob (Lynda), she leaves behind her sister Diane (John).

Mom was a keen homemaker and talented seamstress. She loved to laugh and Pa supplied the funnies.

Heartfelt thanks for the care and kindness Dr. Goetz provided throughout her final years. Thank you too, Gillis House staff for their attention and compassion, along with Interior Health.

There will be a private memorial for both Mom and Dad at a later date. Please consider a donation to the BC Cancer Society or a charity dear to you.
