It is with great sadness that the family of Yvonne Viola Horne, announces her passing on November 26, 2021 at the age of 92. Born in Looma, Alberta to Helen & Albert Wensel.
Evie (as she was fondly known) will be sadly missed by her nieces: Judith Hummel, Linda Wensel Pierce, and her nephews: David Wensel and Douglas Wensel, along with extended family and longtime friends. Evie was predeceased by her loving husband of 50 years, Allan Horne, in 2014.
Evie had a life-long love of professional baseball and was an especially big fan of The Blue Jays. She also loved to travel, with a favourite destination being Vegas or Jackpot in Nevada, hitting the casino and slot machines. Evie & Allan spent many memorable summers at their cabin at Upper Mann Lake (St. Paul), where family and friends would often visit.
