BENKO: Yvonne M.
September 17, 1926 – June 13, 2021
Yvonne Marie Tanguay was born September 17, 1926 in Ponteix Sk. Her parents’ Arthur and Emma (Lallier) had 5 children with Yvonne. Always one to value both education and religion, Yvonne went through great lengths to obtain her grade 12 despite having to do some of her high school through correspondence. Following that she entered the convent for a period-of time before furthering her education in Regina in the field of diagnostics. Upon completing her post-secondary education, she became employed as a lab/x-ray tech at Regina general hospital. It was there in Regina where she met her soon to be husband Kalmon Benko and the couple was wed on October 13, 1951. The couple decided to start their family shortly after in 1952 with their first son Bernard (Bernie). After relocating to Manitou beach for Kal’s work the family grew to include Gabriel (Gabe) in 1958 followed by Vernon (Vern) in 1961. Yvonne was always very involved in the church and enjoyed being part of the Catholic women’s league, as well she held a variety of positions within the community including secretary treasurer. Yvonne is survived by her 3 sons Bernard (Linda), Gabriel and Vernon. Her 4 grandchildren Misty, Harley, Austin & Cole, and 6 great grandchildren Christopher, Michael, Matthew, Labraune, Carter and Shawna.
Yvonne passed away peacefully at Manitou Lodge in the Watrous District Health Complex on Sunday, June 13, 2021. A Private Family Graveside Service will be held Friday, June 18, 2021 at Watrous Cemetery with Fr. Peter Olisa officiating.
