Condolences & Memories (7 entries)

  • Mes sincères condoléances aux garçons et à la famille. J’ai connu Yvette au Collège Beliveau. Votre maman était une personne douce et souriante. Elle était toujours là pour ceux et celles qui venaient la voir pour de l’aide. Yvette parlait de ses garçons avec amour et fierté. Elle sera manquée. J’ai garderai toujours de bons souvenirs de votre maman. Bon courage. - Posted by: Rose Emond (Collège Beliveau ) on: May 28, 2020

  • La perte de Yvette nous fait énormément de peine. On s’est vu il n’y a pas si longtemps au Villa Aulneau, à l’aéroport. Elle était surtout heureuse de ces petits!she loved them so much. Elle était une bonne et belle personne. On a que de beaux souvenirs. Joel et Eric et vos proches, vous êtes dans nos pensées. On pense à vous. Votre beau papa est là pour elle. Gros câlin les boys - Posted by: Patrick & Suzanne LeMadec (Amis) on: May 25, 2020

  • It saddens me to know that Yvette has passed. She was a dear friend of my mother Aline Duval. They taught together at Provencher School and saw each other often even after they were both retired. My mother was much older . I considered Yvette a valuable friend and kept in contact although I now live on Vancouver Island. She was a kind and loving person and very proud of her children and grandchildren. Yvette was a gracious and classy lady but was also fun loving and giving. I will miss her. - Posted by: Therese Duval (Friend) on: May 24, 2020

  • I am shocked to read of the sudden passing of my friend Yvette. I worked with Yvette for many years at College Béliveau and admired her greatly. She and I took a group of students to France in 1996 and she was a great companion. She mourned the sudden loss of her husband and was so proud of her two boys. I am profoundly moved by her passing and offer my deepest sympathy to her family. She was a great lady. - Posted by: Wayne Selby (Friend and colleague ) on: May 23, 2020

  • For Yvette's two sons, Joel and his family, and Eric, her two brothers and their family we are so sorry for your loss. I believe that as time goes by our wonderful memories of Yvette, as a mom, sister, cousin, and friend will help us remember her every day of our lives. Yvette was so easy going that travelling with her was a delight. We were fortunate to have had many experiences we shared dearly. Weekly Sunday family picnics at Assiniboine Park. Walking to school together every day. Spending time at the lake with her for two weeks with her sons and our daughter. Travelling together to the States to visit our Aunt and her children. The best of times was spending Christmas together throughout all of our lives. Take care Joel, Nicole, Danique and Eric. You will always be in our thoughts and prayers.

  • I would like to offer my deepest sympathies to the Zemcak/Verrier families on the passing of Yvette. She was one of my favourite teachers in elementary school at Ecole Provencher. I had the privilege of having her as a teacher for Grades 5 and 6. She was the most patient and kind teacher I have ever known. I also knew her on a more personal level as her father lived on the next block of my childhood home. I would often await her coming to visit her father when her son was a baby. I enjoyed spending time with her beyond the classroom - she was a pleasure to be around! May she rest in peace and the world is now missing one of the best😔 - Posted by: Carole Lussier (Former student/Family friend) on: May 23, 2020
