Share This Obituary
Paul was born December 14, 1920 to Eugene and Yvonne Duriez. He was the oldest of seven children. Paul married Gertrude Grundner of Pierceland, SK., together they had seven children, Anne, Pauline (Robert), Patricia, Yvonne (Carl), Daniel (Tracey), Darlene (Chris) and Eugene. They divorced in 1977. After his divorce, he developed an amazing network of supportive friends. He continued to farm in the Beacon Hill/Pierceland area until he was into his eighties. He spent a little time in the Cold Lake Nursing Home before coming to reside in Meadow Lake for the last years of his life. All who knew him, knew of his tomatoes and strawberries. Even today healthy tomato plants grow outside his suite at the Pioneer Lodge in Meadow Lake. He never threw anything away he could always find a new use for it. When he purchased his scooter, the compactness of the town of Meadow Lake enabled him to maintain his independence nearly to the end.
