Yvonne Valerie (Boll) Wenaus
Yvonne Valerie (Boll) Wenaus was born on August 11, 1927 and left us on October 15, 2015. Her remarkable ability to form instant friendships that last a lifetime is reflected in the number of people that are mourning her passing. Throughout her life she was physically active in competitive sports. As recent as last winter at the age of 87 she curled for both the Nanaimo senior women’s and the mixed league. Throughout her years she coached many young athletes in fastball, curling and golf. She was a strong influence in the revival of the Fillmore Golf Course.
Yvonne is predeceased by her husband John in 2002, 8 siblings and their partners. She is survived by her children Wayne (Susan), Wendy, Rick (Bonnie), Carol (Charles), Lee, and David (Pam). She has 14 grandchildren, 8 great grandchildren, and 4 living siblings Eugene (Helen) Boll, Loretta (Melvin) Wenaus, Lucille (Bill) McConkey and David Boll.
She was born and raised in the Viceroy/Verwood area and lived in Fillmore, Regina, and Nanaimo.
She was a strong competitor who approached everything she did with the same winning attitude. She never lost a game because there was always a time in the game when she was winning.
She was our mother, a grandmother, a great-grandmother, a sister and a best friend. She was full of love for everyone and everyone gave that love right back to her.
There will be a small service with her church family at Hope Lutheran on Saturday 24th at 1:30 p.m. and a gathering for her numerous friends at Bowen Complex- Club House, 500 Bowen Road from 4 to 7 p.m. Please come and bring your memories.
