Audrey Miriam Drew passed away at Vernon Jubilee Hospital on March 4, 2010, after a brief illness. Aged 82 years. Audrey leaves her loving family – husband and best friend Jack of Armstrong; her three sons Les (Theresa) Robinson, Larry (Kathy) Robinson and Greg (Penny) Robinson all of Enderby; step-son Steve (Helen) Drew of Maple Ridge; step-daughter Lori (Rob) Rendell of New Westminster; sister Evelyn Ellis of Vernon; twelve grandchildren; seven great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews whom she adored in kind. Audrey was predeceased by three sisters and three brothers.
Born at home in Richard, Saskatchewan, on October 20, 1927, Audrey moved with her family to North Vancouver at the age of seven. She lived there and raised her family until retiring to Armstrong in 1988. Audrey loved her home and family, enjoyed cooking, sewing, canning and gardening. Bowling, playing cards with friends, visits to the casino, watching curling and sharing a good joke were some of her favourite pastimes. In lieu of flowers, contributions to the Children’s Hospital would be appreciated.
