Duval spent nearly two decades working in the security industry in Edmonton, Alta.   Most of that time she was working in the distribution side in sales at Tri-ed, ADI, Graybar and MyGuard Distribution.

Friends and colleagues described Duval as a “straight shooter and hard worker who always pitched in to help wherever it was needed to get the job done.”

Prior to her distribution career, Duval worked as an installation coordinator and in outside sales on the integrator side.

Duval was one of the first women in Edmonton to work in the predominantly male security industry.


Those who knew Duval “will remember her loyalty, honesty and wit.  She will be missed by many.”

A “celebration of life ceremony” was held in Duval’s honour on Aug. 18 at the Norwood Legion in Edmonton.
