Memories of her life lessons – her cooking, gardening, her work ethic and her deep faith - will live on in her 15 children, 30 grandchildren and 33 great grandchildren.

In Honour of my Wonderful and Blessed Mother-in-law

My Beloved Mother-in-law was an exceptional person who raised an exceptional family who have always been kind caring and loving to my family. When I married Sharon Yawney I instantly gained 6 exceptional brother-in-laws and 8 exceptional and beautiful sister-in-laws not to mention the extended family and many nieces, nephews, grand children and great grandchildren. Mom and Dad created and leave behind a Village Legacy that is true to the saying “it takes a village to raise a child” What an amazing Village to be a part of!

Mom and Dad were always there supporting Sharon and I in our early years of marriage, support in prayer and feeding us– Mom always invited us over on Fridays for fish, perogies, and some of Mom’s present award winning Borscht (I always knew there was something special about that soup even back then), we always appreciated and looked forward to this treat.
Mom was always so dear – I will always remember the time my Mother died suddenly and Mom Yawney gave me an endearing hug and whispered, “I will help and be your mother”. Mom was truly the Queen Mother of our village and beyond in my eyes. Her always welcoming and inviting love and support for all, her strength, courage, commitment, faith in God, and dedication were a role model of inspiration for all who knew her. Mom was not perfect but she was always willing to forgive and be forgiven and would encourage us, consistently role modeling her Catholic Faith in God through attending church, prayer, song and saying the rosary.

Matthew my son was very Blessed to have known Baba; in his words, “I am so thankful and grateful for such a wonderful Baba!”

My life and family has been Blessed knowing Mom. I have been honoured both to have Mom as my Mother-in-law and also as a sister and friend in Christ. I will miss her but until we meet again we will always cherish our memories with Mom (Baba) our Queen Mother.

Love you Mom,
