Obituary of Yvette Dorina Brown
It is with profound sorrow that we announce the passing of Yvette Dorina Brown, a resident of Minto, NB (formerly of Maugerville), who departed this life on Saturday, February 3rd, 2024, at the Oromocto Public Hospital. Born in Bathurst, NB, Yvette was the daughter of the late John "Percy" Boudreau and Marie Philomene "Marianne" Theriault.
Yvette dedicated 30+ years of her professional life to Sears, where she became a cornerstone in various departments, ultimately retiring from the parts department. Her two boys always referred to her as "fun mom". Not a weekend passed without live music either set up in the house or the band set up outside, always with great friends, good food and a few drinks.
Beyond her career, Yvette found joy in various pursuits. An avid bingo enthusiast, she could be found on Monday nights at the Holy Rosary Hall, delighting in the game. Yvette appreciated the simple pleasures, often enjoying a glass of wine, regardless of the season. Her love for the outdoors was evident in her green thumb, cultivating thriving gardens of herbs, vegetables, and flowers. She maintained an active lifestyle, even meticulously mowing her extensive lawn with a push mower. This industrious effort was rewarded with the simple pleasure of several glasses of wine, becoming one of her cherished pastimes. Her truest joy, however, lay in her three grandchildren and the numerous dogs and 2 cats, Candy & Babe that had graced her life.
Yvette is survived by her two sons, Rick Brown (Monique) and Glen Brown (Tish); grandchildren, Chantal and Riley Mercier Brown, and Tiffanie Brooks Brown; sister, Dorothy Featherstone; brother, Randy Boudreau; along with several nieces, nephews, and extended family members.
Having grown up in a large family, Yvette shared her childhood with 12 siblings, 8 brothers, and 4 sisters. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by 7 brothers and 3 sisters.
A celebration of Yvette's life will take place at a later date. For those who wish, donations made to the MEMS Breakfast Program in her memory would be appreciated by her family.
Yvette's family would like to include a thank you to all the staff at OPH for all of Yvette's care. Thank you as well to Hogg Funeral Home.
