Mrs. Yvonne Laura McLeod passed away in the Rimbey Hospital and Care Centre on Saturday September 6, 2014 at the age of 83 years. She is survived by her husband Doug of Rimbey, children Paula Madu, Debbie Clutton (Dennis), Doug McLeod, and Barbara McLeod (Stephen); grandchildren Alyson Shore (Collin), Sydney Madu, Tori Madu, Clare McLeod-Smith, Rebecca McLeod, Malcolm Knutsen, Ronan Clutton, Ben Clutton; and great grandchildren Hannah Shore and Hailey Shore. She was pre-deceased by her parents Octavia and Joseph Fleury, sister Yvette Fleury, and brother Abe Fleury.
The family farm near Crestomere was where Yvonne and Doug shared their home for over 50 years. She had many skills including harvesting massive gardens, and cooking and sewing for her family. Her children and grand-children enjoy many of the countless pieces of antique furniture she refinished over the years. She had an impeccable sense of style and was creative, focused, and accomplished in her many projects. Yvonne shared her love for literature and the arts generously with her family, and her quick-witted sense of humor will be deeply missed. Rest in love and peace.
In keeping with Yvonne’s wishes a family interment service will be held in the Okotoks Cemetery in Okotoks, Alberta on Friday September 12, 2014 at 2:00 PM.
In honor of her memory, donations to the Rimbey Continuing Care Centre or the Alberta Lung Association will be gratefully accepted. The family wishes to extend sincere gratitude to the Rimbey Care Centre, Area 3 staff for the outstanding care Yvonne received, and the kindness and support extended to her family.
