Obituary of Yvonne Wolfe
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother Yvonne Wolfe, peacefully at the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance on Tuesday April 19, 2022 at the age of 90. She was the beloved wife of 63 years of the late William “Bill” Wolfe (2016) both of Chatham. Born in Malden Township in 1931, daughter of the late Zulma (Sineave) and Henri VanBeveren.
Loving mother of Deborah (dec. Dave, 2020), Karen and Michael. Dearest grandmother of Mark (Lori), Jennifer (Corie), Alexander and Rachel and great-grandmother of Chloe, Quintin, Elizabeth and Veronica. She will also be sadly missed by her nieces and nephew.
Yvonne loved and valued her family above all else. They were her mainstay, focus of her life and she was always there for them with her love and support. Together with her husband Bill she owned and operated Wolfe's Stationery in Chatham for almost 25 years. She loved having a social drink with family and friends and spending time around the backyard pool. She had strong, lifelong relationships with her sister Margaret Tacq (late), her close friends, former employees and neighbours. She also enjoyed annual trips to Florida with family, day trips to the casino, coffee and lunches at Tim Horton's, and relaxing in the evenings with Wheel of Fortune, Jeopardy or a good movie. All who knew her said she was "a sweetheart". She was a member of the Catholic Women's League.
Special thanksto the staff at the Chatham-Kent Health Alliance for all their care and great work.
As per Yvonne’s wishes, cremation has taken place. Due to the ongoing covid-19 pandemic, a graveside service will be held at 1pm on Saturday May 7 2022 at Maple Leaf Cemetery. All are welcome.
