June 24, 1924 to June 26, 2018
It is with heaviest hearts we share the news of the peaceful passing of our mother, Audrey Elsie Duers, at the age of 94 years. She was the centre of our world and will be dearly missed.
Audrey is survived by her loving daughters and their families: Margaret (Wayne) Sorenson and children Glen (Wendy) and Kevin (Lisa); Joyce (Gerry) Regier and children Bob, Ted (Martha) and Callan; and Lesley (Gerry) Girard and children Derek and Blair. Fondly remembering their great grandma are Dylan, Hannah, Milan, Evan, Jackson, Jorjia, Stephanie, Derek, Drew, Jordan, Brie, Joey and Charley. She also leaves behind her sister-in-law, Lorraine Winget; and many nieces and nephews.
Audrey was predeceased and will be reunited with her loving husband, Robert Charles “Charlie” Duers who passed in October of 2004.
Audrey was born in Regina, Saskatchewan in 1924 to Cliff and Margaret Winget, having one sister. Joyce and one brother, Clinton. During the war, cooling off at the Swift Current swimming hole, she met an English Air Force soldier – the love of her life who became her husband of 62 years, Charlie (Ginger) Duers. After the war, in her early years of marriage, Audrey lived in Newcastle, England for 10 years before returning to Canada in 1953. She raised her family in many cities across Canada making lifelong friendships in each city.
Audrey enjoyed many hobbies such as quilting, sewing, painting, gardening, crafting and stamp collecting. But it didn’t stop there! Audrey had a passion for golf, curling, cards, bowling, camping – too many to mention.
Most importantly, her family always came first. Watching or participating in graduations, sports events, concerts, theatre, recitals she was front and centre!
