Audrey was a happy person and always looked for the best. She spent her childhood on the farm at Robsart. In 1965, she began to spend part of her time living with her grandmother Pearl Anderson in Medicine Hat and attended George P. Vanier School and the sheltered workshop there. In 1982 she joined the family now living in Maple Creek.
She looked forward to going to camp Olympics for a week every summer for many years. She was one of the first workers at Sarcan and was employed as a can crusher for five years.
In 2000 she moved into the Group Home to live with her friends and attend the workshop there. Due to declining health she was accepted into the nursing home in 2005.
The family is very grateful to the staff for the care and consideration she received there.
