Audrey Lois King (nee Lennard) passed away peacefully in Trail, BC on May 5, 2013 surrounded with love by her family. Born in Revelstoke on August 14, 1932, Audrey was pre-deceased by her father Oscar Adolf, her mother, Minnie Leonora and her brother Stanley.
Audrey’s grandsons, Jared Butcher (daughter Linda) and Matthew and Corey King (son Bill) were her pride and joy, and she loved them dearly. Audrey will be missed by her many nieces and nephews, from Vancouver Island to Medicine Hat, all of whom brought her much happiness through her life.
As a young girl Audrey was busy with basketball, gymnastics, lots of friends and music. At home Audrey loved to play the piano for her family and friends, often accompanied by her dad on accordion. In 1952, she met a young lad named Bill and they soon were singing sweet harmonies. Audrey and Bill were married on October 10, 1953 and proudly called Revelstoke home until they moved to Fruitvale in February, 2009.
A graveside service for family and friends will be held at 11:00 am on Wednesday, July 3, 2013 at the columbarium in the Mountain View Cemetery in Revelstoke. A tea will follow in the basement of the United Church.
As an expression of sympathy, donation in Audrey’s name may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada at 4 – 1551 Sutherland Avenue, Kelowna, British Columbia V1Y 9M9 or online at www.heartandstroke.com
