It is with great sadness that the family of Courtney Blair Yakimetz announces her passing on June 14, 2021 at the age of 31, following a courageous two-year battle with cancer.

She will be deeply missed and forever remembered by her loving husband Michael; her three beautiful children Drayson, Dallin and Genevieve; mother Connie; stepdad Robert; sister Kendall; brother Robin; step-sister Brittiny and father Fred.

She will also be dearly missed by all of her nephews, nieces, extended family members, friends and community members.

Courtney was born on Nov. 24, 1989 in Hanna, Alta.

She later moved to Vegreville with her family where she quickly became a beloved part of the community.

Her passion for hairdressing led her to open her successful salon where she continued to impact many lives.

Courtney was an amazing and loving mom, wife, daughter, sister and aunt.

She was strong and independent while being a kind and caring friend.

Her impact on all those lucky enough to know her will continue to be felt and we could not be luckier to have had Courtney in our lives and to have felt her love.
