Yvonne Shirley Boston

Passed on April 5, 2024

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Yvonne Shirley Boston, who peacefully passed away on April 5th, 2024. Yvonne was born in Tisdale, Saskatchewan on May 11, 1934, and her life was a testament to love, strength, and unwavering resilience.

Yvonne was preceded by her son Rocky and her husband John. Their memory remained cherished in her heart until her final days.

She is survived by her loving daughters, Terri-lynn Huber (Larry) and Tannis Kowalchuk (Keith), who were the pride and joy of her life. Yvonne’s legacy also lives on through her cherished grandchildren: Shaelynn (Dylan), Brandon, Jesse, Krista (Darcy), Kaily (Ganesh), and Trevor, each of whom brought immense happiness to her life. Yvonne was also blessed with two great-grandchildren, Arlo and Avi.

Yvonne’s life was defined by her unconditional love for her family and her unwavering commitment to their well-being. She was a beacon of strength and wisdom, offering guidance and support to all who were fortunate enough to know her. Her kindness knew no bounds, and her gentle spirit touched the lives of many.

In addition to being a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Yvonne’s warmth and compassion endeared her to all who crossed her path.

While we mourn the loss of Yvonne’s physical presence, her memory will forever live on in the hearts of those who were privileged to know her. May she rest in eternal peace, reunited with her beloved husband and son, knowing that she was deeply loved and will be profoundly missed.

As per Yvonne’s request no formal service will be held.
