It is with great sadness we announce the passing of our Mother, Yvonne Kathleen Merz.
Predeceased by her husband, Bud (2012), and her mother, Marie Stone (1985), she is survived by her brother Pat (Sharon); son Robert (Lizette); daughters Christine (Ben) and Carol (Raven); grandchildren Kati and Kevin; and great grandchildren Edan and Naomi.
Yvonne was born in Regina, Sask. and spent her childhood in Cranbrook and on the Sunshine Coast of BC before moving to Quesnel where she completed high school in 1953. Yvonne worked at the
T.D. Bank after graduation until she married the love of her life, Bud, in 1959. Yvonne was a devoted wife, a caring mother, an able bookkeeper for her husband’s business. She was a very good friend to many as she always appreciated any opportunity to visit with friends.
She loved to read a variety of topics and admired all animals but was especially fond of cats. She enjoyed gardening. In her later years, Yvonne was very active in the community.
She attended many community events, running the Tuck Shop at Dunrovin and was also a proud member of The Gold Pan Roses Red Hats.
She will be sorely missed and fondly remembered. There will be no service at Yvonne’s request.
