Yvette was a lady of elegance and grace who enjoyed life to the fullest. She had a keen sense of style, a flair for decorating and a great appreciation for fashion. She loved her gardens and flowers, and was a wonderful cook. Yvette enjoyed her homes and together with Ken created a welcoming environment shared with family and friends. Their doors were always open, whether hosting holiday dinners, spending relaxing days on the dock in Bracebridge, or lounging by the pool in Venice Island, Florida.
Yvette was dedicated to her beloved dogs - two huskies (Chinook and Tara, both deceased) and their white shepherd (Koda), who were rescues from the Muskoka Animal Centre. She provided kindness and constant loving care to each of her cherished four-legged friends.
Due to COVID-19 restrictions, there will be a private family service. In lieu of flowers, donations to Yvette’s charity of choice, the OSPCA – Muskoka Animal Centre, would be greatly appreciated and may be arranged through Reynolds Funeral Home.
