FLOCK, Luella Yvonne (nee Fraser)
December 6, 1925 — January 14, 2019
Feisty to the end, Yvonne drew her last breath in Kelowna General Hospital at 6:00 pm on January 14, 2019. Predeceased by husband Murray Alexander, mother to Murray Alan (Lois) and grandmother to Alexander, Tristan and Ian; Yvonne was born on December 6, 1925 in Port Elgin, Ontario. Having lost siblings Jim Fraser and Lee Bertram, she is survived by sister Gwen Kane.
Following graduation from Toronto Western Hospital as a Registered Nurse, she met physician Murray Alexander at Toronto’s Sunnybrook Hospital. Married in 1951, they lived in Southampton, Ontario until the year 2000. They then moved to Kelowna, BC to be closer to their son and grandsons.
Persistently and fiercely independent, Yvonne maintained old and established new friendships through her 93 years. She wielded the phone like a weapon and may be responsible for reduced profits at more than one telecommunications company!
Her positive impact could be gauged by the constant parade of visitors and well-wishers to her hospital room at KGH.
By request, there will be no public service. Yvonne can best be remembered and honoured through a donation in her name to the charity of your choice.
