With a great sense of loss and sorrow the family of Evelyn Durant, age 84, of Stonewall announces her sudden and unexpected passing on February 23, 2020.
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 pm at MacKenzie Funeral Chapel, Stonewall.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Rosewood Lodge, Stonewall, Manitoba.

A great loss to the family. Every year without fail a group of us gals went out for supper and to
rainbow stage performances. Good memories. Since moving to Winnipeg I have lost touch.
Evelyn was always fun to be with and a good person. My sympathy. Doris DeRyck

We have lived across the street from Evelyn for about 25 years. Just last fall I walked past her place and stopped to visit her while she was in her back yard tending to her garden. She gave me some flower seeds and invited me in to her home as well as my dog. She gave me some green peppers, then said to me....what else can I give you. I was happy just to spend time visiting. A wonderful lady with a heart of gold.
