Catherine Margaret Yule

Passed on August 8, 2019

It is with great sadness that we announce the death of Marg Yule on Thursday August 8, 2019, with family by her side. Marg is lovingly remembered by daughters Barb Gemmell (Dave), Cathie Slatcher (Randy), son Ken Yule (Carol), 5 grandchildren Jeff (Karen), Leanne (Glen), Becca (Jesse), Erica (Arthur), Eddi (Matt), and 3 great-grandsons, Jayden, Graeme and Jaxon. She was predeceased by her husband Bill in 1996 and her sister Eleanor Good. She also leaves behind her many great friends from Lions Manor including the morning coffee group which was always a highlight of her day. Marg was born March 28th, 1925 in the Hamiota hospital and went to Oakner School to Grade 8, Stonewall School until graduation and then to Business College. She worked at the C.I.B.C. in Stonewall for several years before entering her most rewarding career, joining her husband Bill on the family farm following their marriage on July 9th, 1948. She made many lasting friendships, and enjoyed volunteering in many leadership positions including District Deputy, Rebekah Lodge, where she received the highest honor of Decoration of Chivalry, Secretary of the Rockwood Agricultural Society, President of the Rockwood Horticultural Society, serving on both Provincial Boards, the Chair of the Provincial Quilting Competition and many years as a 4H leader. Mom also enjoyed and had a knack for researching history, and completed and published the story of the Rockwood Agricultural Society’s first 100 years, the 75th Anniversary of 4-H Clubs, the first hundred years of Rockwood Municipality and Pine to Palm Resort Park’s 25th Anniversary. Following their retirement, Bill and Marg enjoyed travelling to Europe, Scotland, Australia, New Zealand, mainland U.S.A. and Alaska before settling down to winters in Pine to Palm Resort Park in Weslaco, Texas. It was here that Marg spent 30 wonderful winters, continuing to enjoy leadership roles in the Tourist Club, Shuffleboard Club and as the creator of the Park Directory. Her passions until the end were countless hours spent on the computer doing research and making greeting cards and photo calendars, knitting, jigsaw puzzles, playing cards, doing Sudoku and watching curling on television. Her greatest joys, though, were her grandchildren and great-grandsons whom she regaled often in her final hours. In honor of Mom’s wishes, the immediate family will celebrate her life with a private graveside service, with interment to follow. Memorial donations may be made to South West District Palliative Care, Box 1282, Stonewall, MB., R0C2Z0.


To Ken, Cathie and families, So sorry to hear of the passing of your Mom. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this sad and difficult time. Sincerely, Dean and Donna Couvier
