Condolences & Memories (6 entries)
Dear Merv, I was just looking in the Free Press Obituaries for an Air Canada co-worker and came across Audrey’s obituary. Am a bit shocked but glad she is no longer suffering. It has been a long haul for her. I see it was a private burial. I offer my deepest sympathies to you Merv (you were always there for her) and Brent and Brenda. I am so glad I called on her 80th birthday and we got to chat and you sent a picture of Audrey and her birthday cake. I will always remember her fondly.

Very sorry to learn of Audrey's passing, my thoughts and prayers to you and your family. Merv. - Posted by: Peter Doliwa (Acquaintance) on: Jun 03, 2023
Audrey and I came to know each other as we both attended Daniel Mac, and we talked on Sundays as I was coming/going to Bethesda Church (across the street from her childhood home). We recalled memories of DMCI days when we met at reunions and caught up with our lives in the intervening days. Audrey was full of light, laughter and positive energy, a gift to all who knew her. Prayers for your family Audrey. - Posted by: Lila (Davis) Larson (School friend) on: Jun 03, 2023
