Yvonne Anne Moseley

June 6, 1952 - September 6, 2012


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Yvonne after a lengthy battle with cancer. Yvonne will be remembered for her courage,  positive attitude, her sense of humour and her joy of life during the adversity of illness. She always had a smile for everyone.   Yvonne was born in Grand Forks  and moved to Burnaby with her parents and sister when she was two years old to the house that her sister and dad still live in. She attended school in Burnaby graduating from Central  High School in 1970 and Simon Fraser University with a Bachelors degree in Commerce. In 1977 Yvonne moved to Nelson where she was employed at Berg Naqvi. It was when employed at Berg Naqvi  that during an audit she met her husband Lloyd.  While employed there she made several life long friends. After leaving the accounting office Yvonne opened her own book keeping business which she ran until illness forced her to retire in 2010.   Yvonne had a passion for travel and enjoyed many holidays to Europe, across Canada and numerous Cruises. There were still many places on her “want to see list”   One of Yvonne’s great pleasures was golfing with her friends and her annual golf trips with Sandy, Phyllis, Lorill, Nina. Marci. Lorraine, Dawn, Sue and others and the annual golfers Christmas party.   Yvonne was very close to her family. Spending time at the soccer pitch on a Saturday to watch Ian and David play was a weekly joy. She was proud of their accomplishments. Family time around the dinner table with whomever was there was always filled with laughter.   Yvonne is survived by her husband Lloyd, her sons Ian and David(Laura), her sister Lee Lorimer, her father James Lorimer her brothers-in-laws Bryan(Sandy) Alan (Marianne), Grant(Noreen) and her special friend Sylvia Fane and numerous cousins and nephews. She was predeceased by her mother Cecily Lorimer in 1999.   The Moseley family would like to thank Dr. Malpass, the nurses at the chemo clinic. We would also like to express our appreciation to Yvonne’s special friends Dawn and Tim Powell and Lorill and Rick Harding who were always there for Yvonne and made the time of her illness quite bearable.

Dear Lloyd and Family, I’m so sorry Yvonne passed away. She was so positive that she’d be around for at least 7 years she said. You were one of the only couples I knew that held hands while walking down the street. Yvonne was such a happy person. She loved her family very much. Take care of each other and love each other.
