Mavis Marjorie Durling
January 11, 1955 - February 27, 2017
Mavis grew up on the family farm near Wembley, Alberta. She attended school in Wembley and Grande Prairie and then moved to Edmonton where she attended NAIT and studied Accounting. She worked at the Income Tax department and Alberta Housing and then met and married Leslie Durling on May 19, 1979. Mavis and Les made their initial home in Edmonton where they had their first daughter Jill. Soon they built their family home in St. Albert where they grew their family with two more daughters, Robyn and Amanda. Mavis was a loving and caring person who devoted her life to her family. She had volunteered for many years with the Synchronized Skating Clubs and enjoyed being part of her daughters’ accomplishments on the ice and the camaraderie of the teams. She also enjoyed camping, gardening, cooking, travelling and helping her girls with any and all projects. Mavis will be very sadly missed, but never forgotten.
“She was too well loved to ever be forgotten”

I had the pleasure of being Mavis’s hairstylist for 25 years. I will miss her gentle spirit in my chair as she shared her stories of her girls and love for her family. May the prayers of those who love you carry you all through this time of sorrow.
God bless you all,
