The Trent University community is saddened to learn of the passing of former employee Yvonne O’Reilly.
Ms. O’Reilly began working at Trent University in 2005 and was a caretaker on campus until 2014.
Below is an excerpt from her obituary notice:
“Yvonne fought bravely with the beast called ovarian cancer for 12 years. She never gave up hope and showed us all how to be strong and determined always. She fought with such class, dignity and positivity, and refused to be defeated. She continued to work, take care of her sons and travelled extensively with [her husband,] John even while having the fight of her life. She never allowed herself to be defined or limited by it.”
Trent University extends heartfelt sympathies to Ms. O’Reilly’s family and friends, and to all who knew her at Trent University.
