With sadness in our hearts, we announce the peaceful passing of Yvonne Beryl King at Sutherland Hills Rest Home on November 28, 2016. Yvonne was born on July 30, 1933 in Scott, Saskatchewan to her parents Florence and Ralph Waldo. She was the 4th child (Dorothy, Enid, Ruth, Lenore, Garfield) into the Waldo family. She is survived by her son Cory King (Meghan) and two grandchildren Isabelle and Liam King of Calgary, AB.
Yvonne married the love of her life Murray King on July 6, 1954 and was blessed to shared 50 countless years together before Murray passed away at the age of 75 (2004). After 23 years of marriage Yvonne welcomed the birth of her only child, Cory King and became a full-time housewife and mother.
Yvonne was a kind and caring person who always wanted to provide a helpful hand. She loved to visit with friends and family while enjoying some of her fantastic homemade baked cookies, pies, or buns. She was a devoted mother, who made it her life’s passion to always ensure her son was loved. Family meant everything to her and her love was unconditional always putting herself last.
