Yvonne Hendry

We regret to announce the passing of Yvonne Hendry, on November 15th 2014, at a rest home in Chilliwack, one month short of her 97th birthday. Yvonne is survived by her daughters Donalda Witt, Joy Russell and brother Thomas Moffat, as well as many nieces, nephews, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her parents Ella and Roddy Moffat, brother Ronald Moffat, sister Lorna Archibald, William Moffat and her husbands Donald Foster, Eric Whiting and Robert Hendry.

Yvonne was loved and respected by all, she was a true lady, proud and dignified. Yvonne diligently worked most of her life serving the public with grace and respect – in large working in ladies wear. She participated in most sports as a young lady, then in her sixties, seventies and eighties started and enjoyed many sports new to her as well as getting a hole in one at the Dragon Lake golf course when she was 82. She continuously knitted sweaters and socks that were both beautiful and practical.

Even in her later years she continued to keep in touch with her school companions and friends she made through her well lived life. A memorial service will be held in the summer of 2015, in Quesnel, B.C.
