Ida Cecile Durand



It is with great sadness and heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Ida Durand (Theroux) at the age of 86, who passed away peacefully in her home in St. Albert with her husband at her side.

She will be lovingly remembered by her husband of 66 years, Albert Durand and their 6 children: Dennis (Elizabeth Watt), Jeannette (Theron Kasawski), Adele, Maurice (Wendy Evans), Richard, and Daniel (Melinda Wong); 14 grandchildren; and 9 great grandchildren. She is survived by her siblings: Florence Warren, Alice Budzinski (Mike), Denis Theroux (Margaret), Rita Nagy (Karl).

She was predeceased by her siblings: Bernard, Leo, Lena, Annette and Aurore.

Our Mother is now resting in peace after a long struggle with cancer. Ida was a 3 time cancer survivor who overcame breast cancer in her early 50ís, then faced stomach cancer in her early 70ís at which time she was given only 6 months to live. As it turned out it wasnít her time. God had other plans for herÖ it wasnít until she was in her early 80ís that she was treated for skin cancer, and finally during the past 6 months she was combating yet another form of skin cancer before she passed.

A Prayer Service will be held between 7:00-9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, October 21, 2014 at Connelly-McKinley St. Albert Funeral Home, 9 Muir Drive, St. Albert, Alberta. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held at 10:00 a.m., Wednesday, October 22, 2014 at Connelly-McKinley St. Albert Funeral Home.

Memorial Donations in Idaís name may be made to Alberta Cancer Foundation, Cross Cancer Institute, 11560 University Avenue NW, Edmonton, Alberta T6G 9Z9.

May she rest in eternal peace.

In Loving Memory of
Ida Cecile Durand
(Maiden: Theroux)
