Yvonne Warren Obituary

It is with heavy hearts that we are sharing the passing of our Mother, Yvonne Patricia Warren on December 22, 2023, at the age of 83 in Calgary, Alberta.

Yvonne was born in Chilliwack, British Columbia in 1940 to Ralph and Stella Elizabeth Blakeburn (nee Mackie).  She was raised in British Columbia and Alberta with her siblings Louise Christiano, Dorothy MacDonald, Arthur Blakeburn, Shirley Bonyai, Lenoard Blakeburn, and Robert Blakeburn.

In 1961, Yvonne met and married William (Bill) Clyde Warren. Together for 50 years, they raised their family in Alberta.  Yvonne had many jobs during her life including bartending and property management but her most important and rewarding one was raising her children and grandchildren.  In 1987 Yvonne obtained her Class 1 driver's license so she and her husband Bill could be together driving long haul throughout Canada and the United States.

Yvonne is survived by her two daughters; eldest daughter, Cheryl (Brad), as well as her son; Bill (Sandra); grandchildren Travis (Amanda), Brandon (Tiffany), Ryan (Manon), Amanda (Cam), Connor (Chantal), Taylar (Tanner), Enrique, Jason; great-grandchildren Isaiah, Avery, Chloe, Jacob, Oliver; sister Dorothy MacDonald and numerous nieces and nephews. 

Yvonne is predeceased by her husband, parents, son Michael, siblings Shirley, Louise, Arthur, Lenoard, and Robert and many well-loved pets.

Her family and friends will miss her kindness, generosity, and her Christmas baking.  She was caring, warm and affectionate but strong and blunt with a tough exterior.   Most of all, she loved spending time with her family and only ever wanted more of it.  Her family was everything.

Yvonne’s family extends a thank you to the dedicated people at Shawnessey Commons and the team at Foothills Hospital for their tenderness, sensitivity and compassion they provided for Yvonne.

There will be a small, private graveside service followed by a celebration of her life in the Spring of 2024.
