Born and raised in Port Colborne, ON, she became the secretary of the Port Colborne High School. The family later moved to Peterborough, ON, where Yvonne became a founding member of the Peterborough Chapter of the Alzheimers Society. She was very sociable and enjoyed meeting people so she became their fundraiser, organizing many bazaars. She also volunteered for the Peterborough Agricultural Society. She has resided in Combermere for the last 30+ years.
The family would like to specially thank her physician, Dr. Meeking, the staff at St. Francis Memorial Hospital and the staff of the Hospice/ Palliative Care Unit at the St. Francis Hospital in Barry’s Bay.
