Board of Directors

It with great sadness that the Board of Directors announces the death on January 25, 2018, of one of its members, Mrs. Lee-Anne Tomkins (nee: Stevens), a life-long resident of Yellowknife.

Lee-Anne joined the Board of Directors in 2013 to fill a vacancy, and was voted onto the Board in April 2014.  With her background in accounting and financial management, she brought insight, common sense, and humour to all of the Board’s discussions.  We are grateful to Lee-Anne for her commitment and contribution to the Board, to our Co-op and to the City of Yellowknife.

In memory of Lee-Anne and in keeping with her wishes, the Yellowknife Co-op will make a donation to the NWTSPCA.

The Board of Directors and senior management team of the Co-op extends sincere condolences to Lee-Anne’s husband, Steve, and to her sister, father and extended family.  Rest in Peace, Lee-Anne.
