  • I was fortunate to have Yvette as a neighbour and best friend for the last twelve years. We shared a rather unique sense of humor and a great interest in politics and world events. I shall greatly miss her and always cherish her memory ! - Posted by: Betty Smith (Friend and Neighbor) on: Jul 17, 2022

  • To all of Yvette's family we are sad to here of the passing of this great lady. When we moved to Binscarth we had no idea the great neighbours and friends we would be close to - Yvette was most definitely one of them. We quickly became great friends and a support system to each other - especially when it came to trapping and removing the odd mouse. Rest in peace great lady - you will be missed here and so welcomed beyond. Bill, Kathy, Tara and Kim. - Posted by: Bill Bawtinhimer (Friends and neighbours ) on: Jul 16, 2022
