Gwynneth Duerr

Born in Cwm in Ebbw Vale, South Wales. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, May Duerr (nee Magee) at the age of 83. May passed away peacefully at home with her children at her side after a courageous battle with Myelodysplasia. May is survived by her loving children, Lee (Bill), Irene, Barry (Heather) and Shannon (Henry), grandchildren, Sean (Kate), Andrea (Russ), Adrienne (Mike), Veronica (Ryan), Sarah, Philip (Jenn), Lisa (Blair), Megan, Devin, Chris, Quentin (Alexis), Lisa Veltri; great-grandchildren, Milana, Heidi, Carter, Tessa, Ivy, Mike and Jesse. Mum (Nanny) will be greatly missed. Our mum was an amazing woman who lived her whole life by the philosophy that “Love is the only rational act.”

May was predeceased by her sons Ian and David and nephew, Tom. Our mum’s request was that her remains be donated to the U of A for medical education. A memorial service will be held for family only. The family would like to thank everyone for their love and friendship. If desired donations may be made to the (Myelodysplasia) or an alternate charity. To send condolences please visit
