It is with great sadness and many tears that we announce the sudden passing of Evelyn Yvonne Harrison (Gotobed) on August 25, 2012. Yvonne was born December 6, 1936 in Vernon, BC. She is survived by her loving husband of 48 years John Harrison. Her four children: Terry Lewis (Philip), Jo-Anne Harrison (Shane), David Harrison (Lindsay) and Darren Harrison (Nicole); nine grandchildren, five great grandchildren, whom she adored. Also left to cherish her memory are her sister Maureen (Jim) Halawell and her brother Rankin (Vickie) Gotobed.
Yvonne was an amazing giving person; she was a devoted rancher’s wife and community volunteer. She touched the hearts of everyone she met.
She had passions for writing, photography, travel, cooking, cake decorating and singing. She is loved and will be missed by many.
The family would like to thank the ICU staff at Royal Inland Hospital for the great care and family support.
A Celebration of Yvonne’s life will be held in the Chase Secondary School, 420 Cottonwood Street on Friday, August 31, 2012 at 1:00 p.m.
Should friends desire, donations to a charity of one’s choice would be appreciated in her memory.
