March 6, 1945 -
March 8, 2022

Yvette St-Amour was born March 6, 1945 to Irene Lovasz in Timmins, ON. Sadly, she passed away in Invermere on March 8, 2022 at the age of 77. Yvette and family celebrated her 77th birthday together, before she passed peacefully with family by her side.

Yvette met the love of her life, Omer, at a restaurant in Timmins, ON in 1961. The two married shortly after meeting and spent 42 happy years together, before Omer passed away in 2007.

Yvette’s first job was working at a bakery, but once she married Omer, they quickly started their own family. Yvette was a homemaker while Omer worked and in 1966, the family moved to Kamloops, B.C. Yvette enjoyed many years with family and friends here, before they moved to Invermere B.C. in 1992. Yvette began working at Dalke’s Service, helping with the books. It wasn’t until she moved to Invermere, that she finally got her driver’s license.

Yvette enjoyed cooking, baking, camping, socializing with friends, listening to music in French and had a love for dancing. Yvette also enjoyed playing bingo, poker nights with “the girls” and trying her luck on the slot machines. Yvette, Carole and the girls, went on various gambling trips together, including Reno and Las Vegas.

Yvette was a caring, compassionate, happy soul. She welcomed everyone with open arms and you were considered a friend after she first met you. She will be greatly missed by all that knew her.

Yvette was pre-deceased by her husband, Omer St-Amour; mother, Irene Lovasz; brother, Bert Dubien and son in law, Emil “Bucky” Dalke.

Yvette is survived by her sisters, Jacqueline Longpre and Iris Hrechka; brother, Ed Longpre; daughter, Carole Dalke; sons, Dan and Mike St-Amour; grandchildren, Nicole Dalke, Damien, Kayla and Adam; great grandchildren, Taylor and Cayden Schuck; adopted daughter, Joanne Krebs, as well as many nieces, nephews, relatives and friends.

A celebration of life will be held at The Invermere Legion, May 13th at 12 pm.
