Yvonne Rose Surette Eaton died peacefully at Gentle Care Seniors Boarding Home in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia on March 6, 2020 at the age of 84. She is survived by her daughter, Justine Bateman; her son, Scott McCarthy; her grandchildren, Whitney Fawcett and her husband Christopher, Hayley Bateman, Samantha Cirinna and her husband Joshua, and Derek McCarthy; her great-grandchildren, Kendall and Connor Fawcett and Theo Cirinna; as well as many cousins, extended family members and friends. She is preceded in death by her son, Michael McCarthy, and her brother, Robert Surette.Yvonne was born on April 16, 1935 in Massachusetts to Clarence Surette and Margaret Deveau. She grew up in Burlington, MA and raised her family in Whitman and Georgetown, MA. Yvonne was very fond of her Acadian heritage and eventually retired to Nova Scotia where she spent the remainder of her life. Her grandchildren remember visiting during the summer months where they made many crafts, baked bread, picked vegetables from the garden, played cards and spent time with family and friends.Yvonne was an extremely talented seamstress and enjoyed quilting and knitting for herself and others, especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved cooking, baking, playing the organ and staying connected with family and friends. She had a strong appreciation for genealogy and never passed up an opportunity to talk to others about her family tree. She loved Skyping with her great-grandchildren and showing off their artwork and photos to others. Yvonne will be remembered for her quick wit and sense of humor.
The family would like to thank the caregivers and staff at Gentle Care Seniors Boarding Home for all their love and care over the past several months. Yvonne was happy being surrounded by such wonderful people and truly enjoyed her time there.The family would also like to thank Yvonne’s dear friend, Audrey Pottier, who has been by her side for as long as we can remember. We are so grateful for her friendship, dedication and love for Yvonne and cannot thank her enough for all of her care.
A private ceremony will take place at a later time in Georgetown, Massachusetts, where Yvonne will be laid to rest beside her beloved son Michael. Memorial Donations in Memory of Yvonne can be made to the Nova Scotia Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Tri-County V.O.N. Online condolences may be sent to: or you may sign the guestbook online at:

OMG. I tried calling a few times after not seeing Yvonne on FB. The phone didn't even connect to a disconnect message. I am so sorry to her this. We never met face to face. We met in an AOL room for people who enjoyed playing hearts back in the early 90's. We always kept in touch. She was such a sweet soul. Shen knew I had a license plate collection and sent me a NS and NF plate in the mail. My deepest condolences to those whose lives she shared and touched.
