Sadly the family of Yvonne Cecille Magee, of Castlegar, wishes to announce her passing at Castleview Care Centre on Thursday, March 5, 2015 after a long fight with Alzheimer’s.
Yvonne was born in Trail, BC on October 21, 1943 to parents Florence and Giacomo Cristofoli. On September 24, 1965 she was married to Kelly Magee and they had one son. Yvonne worked for many years as a receptionist at a local doctor’s office, and in her spare time enjoyed going for walks and spending time with her family.
She is remembered by her son Glenn (Lori), her mother-in-law Patricia, her sister Caren (Joe) and her three brothers Richard (Arlene), Brian (Linda) and Roger (Judy), and their families.
As per Yvonne’s wishes, there will be no service. In lieu of sympathy cards or flowers, it would be appreciated if donations were made to the Alzheimer Society of Canada.
Yvonne’s family would like to extend their thanks to Dr. Merritt, and especially to the entire staff at Castleview Care Centre for their care and support.
Cremation has taken place in care of Castlegar Funeral Chapel.
