Aware that she was loved by all her family, Yvonne died on December 11, 2022.

Yvonne was born to Joseph and Anna (Wuchert) on January 14, 1922 in Cloverleaf. She spent her early years on the farm and in Beausejour surrounded by the large extended Keilback family.

During WW2 she worked as a riveter at S&S Aircraft before moving to Hazelridge where she met and married Paul Nazarko. There they operated a community general store until 1981.

Baba, as she was called by her family, was predeceased by her parents, her siblings Norman, Charles, and Doreen (Houde), her husband Paul, all of Paul’s siblings and by son Lionel.

Yvonne is survived by her sons Brian (Jan) and Grant (Eileen), daughter-in-law Neila (Rick), grandchildren Gordon, Orla (Glen Friesen), Bronagh (Tom Janzen), Nuala (Ryan Kuffner), Niall (Jill Stevens), Heidi, Soren, and Anton (Eugenia Kim), and 12 great grandchildren. She is survived by numerous nieces and nephews and special friends, sister-in-law Maggie Keilback and Kathleen Loeb, her friend of almost 90 years.

She continued to make friends throughout all her life, enjoyed visits and staying in touch with those friends and family far away.

Thank you to the staff members at Tuxedo Villa who cared for her these past 2 1/2 years.

Funeral liturgy will be held at 11:00 am on Saturday, December 17 at St. John Brebeuf Parish, 1707 John Brebeuf Pl. in Winnipeg.
