Yvette Marie Claire Tellier

October 24, 1956October 7, 2019

It is with deep sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Yvette Tellier (nee Trudeau), who left us tragically on October 7th, 2019 at the young age of 62. Yvette was predeceased by her parents, Rene and Germaine Trudeau.

Left to mourn her passing are her loving husband Guy, her sons Dan (Marla) and Marc (Krista), and her loving grandchildren Zachary, Seth, Anna, and Matthew. She also leaves to mourn her sister Florence (Dave), brothers Gerry, Al (Irene), Dennis (Mary), Charles (Jacqueline) and, as well as many nieces and nephews.

Yvette grew up on a family farm in Ile Des Chenes, MB. Yvette was a devoted wife and mother. After a dedicated and fulfilling career as a Database programmer with Varian Medical Systems, she was in the midst of enjoying her well-deserved retirement. She loved travelling, reading, baking, going to the gym and especially loved to ride her motorcycle. She was also a dedicated grandmother to her grandchildren. She was a strong source of encouragement, support and love to her entire family and her ever-growing network of friends. She was basking in her retirement and was continuing her personal growth and exploring the wonders of the world.

Yvette especially enjoyed the annual family summer trips to Camp Waterfall, near Kenora, ON, her yearly extended snowbird trips to Mexico with Guy and her annual summer multi-week motorcycle trips with her biking group. Yvette and Guy also had the opportunity to go on a European river cruise last year, which Yvette especially enjoyed and continued to glow about right up until her passing.

Yvette was very proud of her family. She was a fierce protector of her family and wasn’t afraid to say so. Yvette had a thirst for knowledge and learning and loved to have engaging conversation with those she loved and cared for.

A celebration of Yvette’s life will take place on Friday, October 18th, 2019, at 11 a.m. at the TransCanada Centre, located at 1 Rivard St, in Ile Des Chenes, MB.

The family would like to thank the RM of Ritchot Fire Dept and the staff at the Health Sciences Centre Emergency Dept for their care and compassion during this difficult time.

A private family interment will take place at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a charity of your choice.

Yvette was one of my “locker room friends” at Reh Fit. We didn’t even know each other’s last name but a few times a week we chatted and laughed. I will miss her. These small relationships matter.

My deepest condolences to Yvette’s family. Her life ended far too soon. I rode motorcycles with Yvette back in the day. She was strong, skillful and independent. Yvette and I shared many laughs and smiles. I was honoured to be her friend on the road. Pegs down ❤️

Jane and I are so sad to hear of Yvette's passing. She was a dear sister and club friend to those of us who were lucky enough to ride with her. She was such a wonderful and vibrant person and a very active member of our club, MBVROC... I will always remember her at one of our Christmas parties when she and I swapped some goofy jokes. Good times, good friends.

Pegs down, Frenchy. We will miss you.

My deepest sympathies to Guy,Danny,Mark and their families. I am thinking of all the years we had together through boys hockey, the tournaments where she shared laughs and the best times. They are great memories. We reconnected again with our granddaughters playing hockey together lately, we reminisced and shared some awesome laughs. She was such a proud mom, wife and grandmother. I am honoured to say you and your family were my families friends. My prayers are with you all. Beverley Bettens, Michael and Bridget, Randy and Daphne, Jamie and Cynthia and Kevin.

I remember my sister Yvette wearing a T- shirt with
I GOTTA BE ME written on the front of it when she was about 15 years old. That is basically who she was.
May the sun be in your face and the wind to your back.
Ride In Peace. ( Brother Denis )
