Yvonne Donselaar passed away peacefully on Friday, December 13th, 2013 at Creekside Landing Care Facility.
She was born in Saskatchewan, and moved to B. C. as a little girl with her brothers, Earl and Dave. She completed school in Nelson, B. C. and went on to become a teacher. She met Roy Donselaar and they settled in Edgewood. After Roy passed away, she moved to Vernon to work at her brother’s law firm until her retirement. Yvonne was active in bowling and her church until declining health required less involvement. She spent the last few years at Canterbury enjoying life among new friends.
Yvonne is survived by her loving family: children: Jeanette and grandsons, Mason and Connor; and Michael (Mary) Donselaar and granddaughter, Rebecca; siblings: Earl (Helen) Pattie, Roy (Inga) Pattie, Elaine (Jim) Riederer, and Brian (Robin) Pattie. She was predeceased by her loving husband, Roy in 1986; and by her brother David and his wife, Wilma.
The Funeral Mass will be held at St. James Roman Catholic Church on Wednesday, December 18th, 2013 at 1:30 p.m. with Father Dale Normandeau, Celebrant. A reception will follow in the church basement hall.
Those friends wishing to make memorial contributions in memory of Yvonne may do so to the B. C. Cancer Society, 399 Royal Avenue, Kelowna, B. C. V1Y 5L3.
