She leaves behind her partner Gerald Usher; children Karyn, Jodi (Scott), and Steven; grandchildren Ryker, Keegan, Mataya, Kinsey, Pyper, Reyan, Paisley, and Salem; sister Kerri (Perry) Bell; brothers Wilby Anderson and Floyd Anderson; as well as numerous family and friends.

Yvonne was blessed years ago when she was able to reunite with her birth family. She learnt she was from George Gordon’s Reserve. Yvonne loved to learn about her family and knowing there were many to meet. She was so excited for what the future held.

Yvonne was the kind of person who could light up a room with her infectious laugh and witty comebacks. She had the kindest heart and would help anyone in need, never letting anyone be or feel alone, especially for the holidays.

Yvonne worked most of her life in retail, Zellers till they closed their doors and then Giant Tiger. As her health was getting the best of her, she retired from the job that she truly loved.

She absolutely loved being a grandmother of eight, it was her greatest accomplishment in life. Yvonne cherished every moment with them and wished for dozens more and she was over the moon about a new grandbaby coming in July.

Yvonne’s friends held a special place in her heart from people she knew for a long time to people she just met. You knew that you had a lifelong friend. She was always known as “Momma Von” to the younger ones and the ones she took in that needed help.

A celebration of life will take place on Saturday May 25, 2024, at 1:00 PM at W.J. Jones & Son Funeral Home, 474 Hochelaga St W, Moose Jaw. In living memory of Yvonne, a memorial planting will be made by W.J. Jones & Son Ltd. Please sign the memorial register at website: www.wjjonesandson.com (Obituaries).
