We Remember


August 28, 1941 — May 14, 2024

Yolande St Cyr Legouffe went to be with the Lord on May 14, 2024.  She is survived by her daughters Claudette Ednoste and Lorraine St Cyr; grandchildren Cindy Sandur and Sophie St Cyr; great-grandchildren Priya Sandur, Jayda Sandur, and Kate Belanger; her father Frank Moskal; and siblings Linda Moskal Cyr, Nancy Moskal, and Gessie Champange.  She was predeceased by her mother Aline Le Boutillier; father Eugene Coulombe; husbands Roger St Cyr and Marcel Legouffe.

Yolande St Cyr Legouffe spent her early years in Valdor, Quebec before marrying young and starting a family.  A few years later, she made a new home on Vancouver Island in BC, where her daughter Lorraine St Cyr was born.  Two years later, the family relocated to Merritt, BC, seeking more sunny days and a change of scenery.  In Merritt, Yolande remarried to Marcel Legouffe and found her calling at the local daycare, where her love for children and the nurturing environment was evident to all who knew her.  Her warm smiles and positive attitude endeared her to the community.  Beyond her work, Yolande found joy in a diverse range of activities, from cultivating her collection of happy faces to indulging in gardening, fishing, and dancing.  She loved her great-grandchildren and looked forward to spending time with them.

The family is grateful for the unwavering support received fro the Gillis House in Merritt during Yolande’s battle with dementia over many years.
