Marie “Yvonne” Cecile Vincelette as a youth.

It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our mother, grandmother, and friend on the evening of Aug. 21, 2020, surrounded by family after a courageous battle with cancer.

Marie “Yvonne” Cecile Kjos [nee Vincelette] is survived by: her sisters, Vivian and Linda; her five children, Sheemah, Jessie, Trent [Lori], Shelley, Tracy [Craig]; her 16 grandchildren, and 18 great-grandchildren.

Born in Ballater, AB to Joseph and Josephine Vincelette, Yvonne raised five young children in Alberta before moving the family to Vernon, BC, where she remained until retirement, and moved to McBride, BC.

Mom loved her family and loved any occasion that celebrated family and children. She will be remembered for her friendly, open nature, her love and interest in people, love of babies, animals, cards, crib, and game nights, and we can’t forget bingo!

A celebration of life was held for family in a place mom cherished greatly.
