Audrey spent her youth in Ottawa, graduating from Glebe Collegiate and nursed at Ottawa Civic Hospital after her marriage. Audrey spent many years in Pointe Claire, Quebec then in Senneville, Quebec enjoying bridge, sewing, and gardening with her many friends. In retirement she led a quiet and rewarding life in Athens, Ontario then finally in Brockville where her rose garden became her passion.
Our mother had a long and happy life and marriage and she is where she wanted to be with our dad, having a martini and a game of bridge with her lifelong friends.
