It is with great sorrow, we announce the unexpected passing of Mrs. Yvette Siemens (nee Paradis) on Friday, March 3, 2023 at 79 years of age.
Yvette was born to Frank and Yvonne Paradis in April of 1943, the middle child of three daughters.
Yvette was the loving and devoted wife to Henry Siemens. Yvette and Henry met in Winnipeg in 1965 and married in 1966. Moving back to Thunder Bay to create their wonderful life together, having one child, daughter Diane. They celebrated their 56th wedding anniversary this past November.
Anyone one who knew Yvette, knew she was a very private person and did not want her life story shared. As her daughter, I can tell you she was my best friend and she provided a wonderful life to Dad and I. If you knew her, you would have experienced her quick wit and feisty personality.
She will be sadly missed by husband Henry, daughter Diane and Diane’s husband Dan Galvin, step grandson Kyle, sister Jeanette and Jeanette’s husband Jim Frizzle, sister Annette, brother in-law Ron Siemens, sister in-law Doreen Siemens and their families including many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents Frank and Yvonne Paradis, brother in-law Peter Siemens, and sister in-law Lorraine Siemens.
A celebration of life will be announced at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a charity of your choice.
A big thank you for the excellent care she received from the Thunder Bay Regional Hospital and the staff who attended to her.
