On May 8, 2022, Yolande passed away at the age of 94.
She is survived by her sister Gertrude and brother-in-law Lorenzo Battistello.
Yolande dedicated her life to helping people locally at soup kitchens and drop in centres in the city. She also, on three different occasions, spent five years as a lay missionary in Lima and Ilo, Peru working with the poorest of the poor.
For most of her working career Yolande worked at the Winnipeg Clinic in pediatrics. At the age of 50 Yolande graduated with a nursing degree and returned to work in the same department at the Winnipeg Clinic. Nursing helped Yolande in her next chapter in life, retirement, and returning to St. Adolphe to provide caregiving to her parents, Eugène et Marguerite.
Nieces and nephews appreciated tante Yolande's positive attitude, joie de vivre, her sense of humour, sense of family values, and tante Yolande's sharing of her many flavours of ice cream. We will all miss her infectious laugh.
A funeral service will be held on June 20, 2022 at 2:30 p.m., at St. Adolphe Parish Church.
