With our heartfelt sadness we announce the passing of Idelle at the Queen Victoria Hospital in Revelstoke, BC, on July 3, 2015, at the age of 87 years. There will be a Celebration of Life held at Moberly Manor on Saturday, July 11, 2015, from 2 pm to 4 pm. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Revelstoke Hospice Society c/o P.O. Box 3133, Revelstoke, BC, V0E 2S0, in memory of Idelle.
Idelle was born in Revelstoke, BC, on July 24, 1927, and had been a lifelong resident. She had a love of the outdoors and her interests came in the form of camping, boating, hiking, and going to the lake. Ever since Idelle was young she had a love for dogs. When the time came and she could not own one anymore, she would spoil the “puppies” that were not hers.
Over the years, Idelle was constantly complemented on her “high style” fashion. She could never have enough jewelry, makeup, shoes, and beautiful clothing. This love for fashion lead her to a job at the local clothing store in Revelstoke, which then lead to part-time modeling. Idelle was always modest about her style and fashion, but prided herself on looking her best.
Over the years, Idelle touched many people’s lives. She participated in T.O.P.S for many years and met many lifelong friends there. She always had a smile and a quiet charm about her that was infectious to the people around her. Over the years, she did have her battles with health, but always kept a positive attitude. Idelle will be missed by many people but will live on in the hearts left behind.
Idelle is lovingly remembered and survived by her daughter Heather Durand; sons: Kenneth Durrand (Smoker) and Glen Durrand; her grandchildren: Nicole, Colin, Devin, Kelsey, and Trevor. Idelle was predeceased by her husband, William Durrand (Tyke), her parents Elizabeth and Henry George, and her brother Kenneth George.
