Durant, Yvonne Rose Theresa, age 80, of Pomquet, Antigonish County passed away on May 14, 2022, in St. Martha’s Regional Hospital, Antigonish.
Born in Antigonish, she was a daughter of the late George and Margaret (Benoit) Rennie.

Yvonne worked in the restaurant at the Claymore Inn for roughly 15 years, and she also worked for several people in the Antigonish area as a homecare worker. Yvonne enjoyed watching hockey (especially the Canadiens), bird watching (especially hummingbirds), and her scratch tickets, and she always looked forward to the flowers in the springtime.

Predeceased by her husband, Linus; sisters, Laura, Betty, Margaret, and Gina; and her brother, Raymond.

Visitation will be held Tuesday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9pm in C.L. Curry Funeral Home, 135 College Street, Antigonish. Funeral Mass will be held Wednesday at 11:00am in Ste. Croix Church, Pomquet, with Reverend Andrew Gillies presiding. Burial in the parish cemetery.
