Audrey Murray passed away with her children by her side, at Grace Hospital, July 30, 2020, at the age of 90 years.
Her memory will be lovingly cherished by her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren: Diane (Bob), Karen (Rob - Jeremy and Stephanie - Willow, Chelsea, Dorian and Nathan), David (Chris - Ilia and Chris, Sean and Kayla - Nora, Wynn and Eva), Jeanne (Roger - Marcus, Jamie, Roman and Monica - Jake, Easton and Dillon, Nicole and Jon), her niece Suzanne, and all her dear friends. She was predeceased by her husband Bryson, and her parents, Wyn and Fred VanSlyck.
Audrey was a strong, compassionate spirit who touched the lives of everyone she knew. She gave to others selflessly, visiting friends in need, volunteering and supporting a number of charitable causes. Her passions and interests were varied and many. She and Bryson loved to entertain and friends and family frequently gathered at their home where all were made welcome. They also shared a joy of travelling and they visited many wonderful places and made lifelong friends. Other trips were made with friends and children. At home, she was always busy at something - her beautiful garden, admired by many, making jam and jelly, cooking and baking. She was an avid reader and a solver of puzzles, whether jigsaw, crossword or Sudoku. Mahjong also became a favourite game. Above all else, she loved her family and they her. She brought joy to people lucky enough to have her in their lives.
Many thanks to all the healthcare providers, especially Dr. Claire Jaeger.
Donations may be made to Siloam Mission.
A family service has taken place.
