Laura Yvonne Collins
1928 – 2021
It is with sadness the family of Yvonne Collins announce her passing at Warm N’ Cozy in Saskatoon on August 1st, 2021 at the age of ninety two. She died peacefully in her sleep. Yvonne was born in Fort a la Corne. She eventually moved to Codette, where she met the love of her life, John, who had just returned from WWII. She was surrounded by children, grandchildren and great grandchildren her entire life, and they brought her much joy and laughter. She was born to be a mother and homemaker, always creating a warm home environment. She was either in the kitchen making the best home made buns on the block, in the fabric store buying next season’s clothing, running the kids to various activities, or contributing to the community through various organizations. As well as, working as a bank teller later on. She also loved being around her grandkids, whether at the lake, babysitting, or visiting them wherever they were, and watching all of their sporting events. Her family meant the world to her! Later in life she and John enjoyed travelling with friends and family to many different destinations from Ireland to El Salvador. She overcame the tragedy of losing her only son and was able to still enjoy life which is so amazing and commendable! She was blessed with a wonderful life! The family would like to thank the staff at Parkville Manor, and Warm N’ Cozy for the exceptional care she received. Their care and compassion is greatly appreciated. There will be a private family gathering to celebrate her life. Memorial donations can be sent to the Alzheimers Society (1405 Faulkner Cres, Saskatoon, SK S7L 3R5). Arrangements in care of Aime Laventure – Mourning Glory Funeral Services (306) 978-5200.
