EVELYN MARIE DURANT
Evelyn was predeceased by her loving husband Glen Durant of 49 years. She will always be lovingly remembered by her brother John Berry, children, Gary (Sherry), Brenda (Andre) LaFleche, David (Tina), and grandchildren, Matthew Durant (Meagan), Amy and Kyle LaFleche, and great-grandson Levi.
She was predeceased by her parents, William and Edna Berry and her sister Dorothy (Albert) White.
She will also be greatly missed by her many nieces, nephews, friends and relatives, especially her loving friend Donna Ward and cousin Ruth Sampson.
Evelyn was born January 6, 1936, and grew up on the farm in the Grassmere district of Manitoba. Mom moved to Stonewall to take on her first job as a telephone operator for MTS, where she worked until she started her family in 1963. She was actively involved with the Rebekah Lodge for many years where she catered uncountable events and was responsible for installing Victoria lifelines. Mom enjoyed her summers spending family time at the cottage and working in her garden, which she took great pride in. Mom remained independent and very active until her passing, including her last bowling date the Tuesday before she passed.
Mom was an inspiration to all who knew her and will be greatly missed.
Funeral services will be held on Friday, February 28, 2020 at 1:30 p.m. at MacKenzie Funeral Chapel, Stonewall.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Rosewood Lodge, Stonewall, Manitoba.

I was very saddened to learn of Evelyn's passing. I had the privilege of bowling with her in Stonewall. She was a kind and beautiful person and will be missed. I am sorry that I will not be able to attend her service as I am in Arizona. - Posted by: Linda Rybachuk (Landiak) (Friend) on: Feb 26, 2020

We have lived across from Evelyn for 25 years and I will miss stopping and talking to her while she was tending to her garden. Evelyn will be sadly missed. - Posted by: Rosalie Circolo (neighbour) on: Feb 26, 2020
This wonderful lady was a great friend as we 'operated' together. We lived on the same street later and visited as often as possible as our children grew. These last 2 years we renewed our friendship as we lived side by side. Miss you Ev. - Posted by: Marie Millan (friend) on: Feb 26, 2020
