Yvonne Isabella Webb (Lytle)

December 29, 1948 ~ February 3, 2021

It’s with great sadness that we announce the passing of Yvonne Isabella Webb, 72, on February 3, 2021 at her home in the RM of Roland. She was surrounded by the love of her family and Pastor Bob as she took her final breaths. A private family service took place at Fairview Cemetery in Roland, MB.

Yvonne was born to the late Morley and Lavina Lytle in Carman, Manitoba on December 29, 1948, and grew up on the family farm in the RM of Roland. She graduated from Winnipeg General Hospital School of Nursing in 1970, and that summer she married the love of her life, John Webb. Together, they lived most of their 50 years on the Webb family farm with their two sons.

Yvonne is survived by her husband John Webb and their two son’s Sean Webb (wife Sharon) of Winkler and Monte Webb (wife Stacy) of Cranbrook, B.C., including her brother Morley Lytle (wife Darlene) of Winnipeg and sister-in-law Marion Webb (husband Steve Smith) of Winnipeg.

At a young age Yvonne was very active in the 4H Club, Sewing Club, Canadian Girls in Training and teaching Sunday School. She enjoyed serving her community of Roland at the Pumpkin Fair Tea Room, United Church Luncheons and the Roland Living Gold Committee, while also being part of the Nursing Associations Tranquility Chapter.

She held a special place in her heart for all of her coworkers through the years at Salem Home, Morden Hospital and Health Sciences Centre, including her big and little sisters from nurses training at HSC who have maintained friendships for more than 50 years.

Yvonne was diagnosed with Idiopathic Pulmonary Fibrosis in 2015, making breathing increasingly more difficult with each passing year. She was determined to enjoy what she loved for as long as she was able, including camping and fishing at Falcon Lake, gardening, volunteering at community events and spending time with her family and friends.

She will be greatly missed as she leaves an empty hole in the hearts of her family and friends. Her life will be an ongoing celebration as we will remember her always.

To her husband, “she was a woman who knew what she wanted in life, went after her goals, was passionate about her nursing career, and passionately dedicated to her family - her husband, children and their spouses. She was very precise about things, detailed-oriented, and organized. She loved spending her summer holidays at Falcon Lake, boating and fishing.”

To her sons, “she was a woman who had integrity, was fair, honest, hardworking, and loving. She expected the best out of us. She was supportive and took an interest in whatever we were doing. She loved spending time with family, friends, being in the boat, fishing, and gardening. She enjoyed taking pictures of loons and the flowers in her garden.”

To her daughter-in-laws, “she was a friend and an amazing mother-in-law who treated us as one of her own. She was a strong woman with a tender heart; full of kindness, love, thoughtfulness, generous and incredibly supportive. We were so blessed to be her daughter-in-laws!”

The daughter of a family friend messaged Yvonne just before she passed, wanting her to know what Yvonne meant to her. A beautiful gesture with words we believe would be shared by many. “As a young woman, and as a mother now, I have always seen you as a role model. You are a smart, caring and kind person that I am so lucky to have watched while growing up. You had a career, a family and you were a giving member of the community. Beautiful and smart all around. From time to time images will pop into my head of you hosting dinner parties, sewing beautiful goodies or keeping a beautiful garden. All while fulfilling your career. I knew I wanted to be like that you too, and sometimes I like to think I am. I know already that you are handling yourself courageously and gracefully right now. I don’t have to see it in person, I just know. You have had such a positive influence on me. I am lucky for that and I carry that with me.”

May Yvonne’s legacy and the words she is remembered by inspire us; may they spur us to love out loud - not waiting until one passes before we share our love and gratitude for each other.

We have received a tremendous amount of support from family, friends and the Roland community, which has helped us through this difficult season. We are very appreciative to Sandy Cameron for arranging a team to deliver meals over the last couple of months, and to Pastor Bob Stark for his time and prayers. We are so thankful for the palliative care team - Dr. Woelk, nurses of BTH Palliative Care, and the nurses and care aids of Carman Home Care; the combined care has been nothing short of phenomenal. Special thanks to Menno Reimer at Careica Health for being so cheerful during the oxygen deliveries.

It truly is inspiring to see how much love and support can come from a combined effort of health care and community; rallying together is what makes caring for a loved one at home possible. We are so grateful to have been able to care for Mom, giving back the love she has given us, in the comforts of her home. Spending this last season of life together as a family will be something we will always treasure. The entire experience has been sadly beautiful.

Mom spent her life giving and caring for others, it is now time for her to rest in the arms of angels. We look forward to celebrating her life with friends and family when we are able to do so.

John, Sean, Sharon, Monte, Stacy
