Audrey was born and grew up in Seal Cove on Grand Manan Island. She met Jesus when she was 9 years old and served Him until the end of her life.
She first met her future husband at his 5th birthday party; he failed to notice her for another 12 years.
Audrey went to teacher’s college and taught school at Aulac, NB and then decided to return to teach in her hometown in Seal Cove, NB. After a year, she realized the truth of Jesus’ words: “a prophet is not without honour except in their own hometown.” Audrey went back to the mainland to teach music in the Cole’s Island school area; met her husband to be, said “I do”, and headed for the North Shore of New Brunswick to help in a home mission church. After the girls arrived (Sharon and Carolyn), she became a homemaker, Sunday School teacher, nature lover and “back roader.”
Audrey was a listener. She was a confidante for many of her friends. This ability to listen was to seemingly become her job for life until her grandchildren arrived. She loved being a grandmother to Brandon and Gavin and enjoyed babysitting them while their parents worked. Not even her loving husband could compete with her love of being a grandmother.
A Memorial Service will be held at 11:00 am on Wednesday, May 22, 2019 at Southside Church of the Nazarene, 10712 – 29 Avenue NW, Edmonton, AB
