Obituary of Catherine Eliza Yeo

At the Atlantic Baptist Home, Charlottetown on Monday. September 26th, at the age of 100 years, Catherine Eliza Yeo (Weeks) of North River passed peacefully from this world to rejoin her beloved husband, George Alfred Yeo of East Wiltshire, and her parents, Robert and Josephine Weeks of Winsloe.

Catherine was the last living of her 9 siblings, Florence Templer (Albert), Albert "Abby" Weeks (Olga & Betty), Alma Vickerson (Bob), Stephen Weeks, Robert "Bobby" Weeks (Doreen), Eileen Murphy (Melvin), John Weeks (Bernice), Elizabeth "Beth" Weeks and Norman Weeks (died in infancy).  Left to grieve her passing are her children Audrey Ford (Milton "Miltie”), Judy Lowe (Darrell), John Yeo (Darlene), Robert Yeo (Helena), Anna Stanke (Jeffrey). She was a cherished Grandmother to 17 Grandchildren, 19 Great Grandchildren, and 5 Great-Great Grandchildren, a caring sister-in-law to Mae (Yeo) MacLeod (Carl), and many nieces, nephews, cousins and their families, near and far.

Catherine also leaves behind many friends in the communities of North River, through the Women’s Institute, and Cornwall, through the United Church Women, and as a parishioner at Zion Presbyterian in her later years after her move to Charlottetown.

Many thanks to the caring staff at the Atlantic Baptist Home and Geneva Villa in Charlottetown for the outstanding care and compassion over the years for our Mother.

Catherine lived her life fully and followed a life of faith and love. Her guiding light will be sorely missed by all who had the privilege to know her. Your legacy is of a life, long and well lived, no regrets - an inspiration to all. Thank you Mother. We love you and miss you so much.

Resting at the Hillsboro Funeral Home where visitation will be held on Friday, September 30th at 10-10:45 with funeral service at 11am at the Hillsboro Funeral Home Chapel. Interment will follow at the West River United Church Cemetery, Cornwall.
