Yvette Shandola — 1929-2015

It is with sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and sister, Yvette Marie Shandola (nee Renaud), on October 31st, 2015. 

Born on a farm near Marcelin, Saskatchewan in 1929, Yvette moved to Kimberley, BC in her early teens. 

She married late husband, Joseph, in 1952.  She is lovingly remembered by her three children, Larry (Pamela), Joanne (Larry), and Dan (Darlene); grandchildren Tyrell (Stephanie) and Ryan; great-grandchildren Hannah and Phoenix; her sister, Jane (Hoppy) Mossman; in-laws; and her many nieces and nephews.  She was predeceased by her sister, Rose (Bud) Johnstone and brother, Andy (Yvonne) Renaud. 

Yvette loved her family deeply. She enjoyed traveling and meeting people. She was also an excellent cook who took pleasure entertaining family and friends. Yvette was warm-hearted and friendly. All who knew her appreciated her generous and caring manner. Yvette will be deeply missed by all.  

On behalf of the family, we would like to thank the staff of Slocan Community Health Center for their thoughtful and loving care of Yvette during her final years there. In lieu of flowers, a donation to Alzheimer’s Society of B.C. would be appreciated.

Arrangements are under the direction of Thompson Funeral Service.  Online condolences may be expressed at
