Yvette Clusiault passed away peacefully, with family by her side, at the Fernie Hospital on March 20, 2013.
She was born May 15, 1928 in St-Zachary, Quebec.
Yvette is survived by her children Jean-Marc (Debra), Claudette and Guy (Donna Lee), her grandchildren Derek (Sheryl), Chantelle (Kevin), James, Erin (Wade) and Renee. Yvette has 10 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother Leo (Rollande), her sisters Lorenza and Marie-Paule, her sisters-in-law Jeannine, Marguerite and Cecile, as well as many nieces and nephews.
Yvette was predeceased by her husband Henri, parents Gaudias and Rose-Aimee, brothers Benoit and Conrad, and son-in-law Ghislain.
She took great joy in making people laugh, as anyone who has seen Yvette wearing her “special glasses” can attest. For many years, on Monday nights, you would find Yvette at the Legion Hall playing bingo with her friends. She loved knitting and was sad when her arthritis started getting in the way. She also enjoyed playing Whist and 31 (or “turdy-one” as she pronounced it).
For many years she was involved with the Legion and the Senior’s Drop In Centre.
Yvette will be sadly missed and fondly remembered by her family and friends.
The Memorial Service will take place at Cherished Memories “Serenity Chapel” on Wednesday, May 15th at 1:00 pm with a luncheon to follow at the Senior’s Drop In Center.
In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Arthritis Society, BC & Yukon Division, 895 West 10th Ave. Vancouver, BC V5Z 1L7. Messages of condolence may be sent to the family at www.cherishedmemoriesfs.com Arrangements entrusted to Cherished Memories Funeral Services Ltd.
