Daisy Yakimchuk Obituary

Daisy Yakimchuk (nee Bruce)

September 29, 1933 – November 1, 2023

It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, Daisy, at the age of 90, on Wednesday, November 1, 2023, at the Red River Personal Care Home.

Left to cherish her memory are son, Al (Rose) Yakimchuk; daughter, Wendy (Randy) Wesley; and daughter, Trish (Terry) Fey; grandchildren, Chris (Jessica) Wesley; Quin Fey and Terra Fey; and her most precious great-grandchildren, Tahlia and Ezra Wesley.

Also mourning her loss are sisters-in-law Helen Bruce and Mary Bruce; and brothers-in-law Jim Robinson and Henry Riege.

Mom was predeceased by our Dad, Peter (2013); her parents James and Emily Bruce; sisters Doreen Eastman (Hunt), Jean Robinson and Betty McDonald; brothers Don, Bob and Dave Bruce; brothers-in-law Stewart McDonald, Wilfred Hunt and Dori Eastman; and sister-in-law Grace Bruce.

Mom was born and raised in Clandeboye, MB; a place that was always close to her heart, and the place where she and Dad returned to and built their retirement home.

Mom worked in the health care field for over 35 years, starting at the Selkirk Mental Hospital as a nurse’s aide, and retiring from the Selkirk & District General Hospital in 1990 as a pharmacy technician.

Mom and Dad loved to travel, from their annual camping trips to B.C.; summers at Lee River; bus tours crisscrossing the States; vacations in Mexico; and finally her dream vacation to Hawaii with her daughter, Wendy.

Mom’s gift in life was a wise and gentle wisdom that she was able to share; it enriched all our lives. She had a loving, positive and peaceful outlook on life. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

The family would like to thank the staff at the Red River Personal Care Home for the compassion and comfort Mom received during her time there.

In keeping with Mom’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family service will be held at a later date.
