With sadness, we announce the passing of our loving Mother and Grandmother Audrey McKinnon on Thursday, March 12, 2009 at the age of 67 years. Although we are saddened by our loss, we are grateful for the many years we shared with her and rejoice that she is now reunited with her loving husband, Neil McKinnon, who predeceased her on October 18, 2008 and her son Darren McKinnon, who predeceased her on February 21, 2009.
Audrey enjoyed travelling and has seen many places around the world. She spent several years living in Malaysia and touring all the surrounding countries with her husband, Neil. Her favorite vacation was in 2006 when they spent several weeks touring the wonders of Europe. They also spent many winters in Arizona with friends. Audrey had many passions in life. She loved having all her family together for the holidays and enjoyed playing cards and games. In the summer she loved planting her flowers and spent a number of weeks each summer camping with family and friends. She was a loving and devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She was very proud of her family and will always live on in our memories and in our hearts.
Audrey is survived by her children, Brent (Kathy) McKinnon, Rick McKinnon, and daughter-in-law Cindy McKinnon; her grandchildren, Lindsay, Mitchell, Sarah, Brad and Max; her brothers, Walter (Sharon) Urichuk, Roger (Sena) Urichuk, Orest (Joanne) Urichuk, and brother-in-law Dan Nimmo, as well as numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
