MOORE, Audrey Ann (nee McHugh)

March 21, 1933 – Strome, AB
November 25, 2014 – Calgary, AB

Audrey Ann Moore, adored wife of the Honorable William Kenneth Moore, passed away peacefully, surrounded by her family, on Tuesday, November 25, 2014.

Audrey was born on March 21, 1933 in Strome, Alberta, the second eldest child of Jim and Loretta McHugh. She grew up in Hartell, Alberta, and went on to obtain her RN diploma from the Holy Cross Hospital School of Nursing, in Calgary. After graduating from nursing school in 1954, Audrey worked at the Holy Cross and then moved on to a career as an airline stewardess with TransCanada Airlines.

Audrey’s true vocation in life was as a devoted wife, loving mother and caring grandma. Audrey and Ken were happily wed for 59 years, and their union produced seven children. She is survived by Joan (Yves) Gauthier, Jim (Linda) Moore, Dan (Gina) Moore, Bill (Allison Hakomaki) Moore, Maureen (Larry) Hobden, Tracey Moore-Lewis (Ward Lewis), and Bob (Jody) Moore. Audrey was the cherished grandma to twenty grandchildren and three great grandchildren. She will be missed by her sister Carol Paetz, brothers; Dennis (Deanna), Frank (Shirley), Gerald (Marlene) and Donald (Bev) McHugh, and sister-in-law Shirley McHugh. Audrey was a favorite auntie to dozens of nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, her brother Allan and her sister Terrilea.

Audrey was a selfless and compassionate woman, who always put the needs of others before her own. She was unfailingly kind and generous, and always saw the best in everyone she met. She was a gracious hostess and her favorite times were spent cooking and sharing Sunday dinners. Everyone was always welcome around her table.

She was a woman of deep and abiding faith – a faith which carried her home into the arms of Our Lord. Audrey’s compassion and generosity extended far beyond the reaches of her immediate family. She was a committed member of several ministries at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church including the CWL. She devoted several years of her life to the pastoral care of those who were sick, dying, elderly and infirm, as the parish Pastoral Care coordinator for Trinity Lodge and Chinook CareWest.

A talented artist, Audrey’s oil paintings grace the walls of friends and family alike. She loved to garden and to golf, and she loved to sing – especially while rocking babies – anyone’s babies! She was a woman of beauty and grace, and will be forever missed by those who cherished her. In lieu of flowers, please extend the gift of fellowship and hospitality and welcome a friend to your table. The Moore family would like to extend heartfelt thanks to Dr. Lana Lovo, and to the exemplary staff at Garrison Greens Seniors Residence for the compassionate care they provided for our Mom.

Those wishing to pay their respects may do so at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church (5340 – 4 St S.W. Calgary, AB) on Monday, December 1, 2014 from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m.

Relatives and friends are invited to Prayers and Tributes at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church (5340 – 4 St S.W. Calgary, AB) on Monday, December 1, 2014 at 7:30 p.m.

Funeral Mass will be held at St. Anthony’s Catholic Church (5340 – 4 St S.W. Calgary, AB) on Tuesday, December 2, 2014 at 10:30 a.m. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

    Dear Moore Family: I have keen and admirable memories of Audrey as a reverential participant in the “Perpetual Adoration” program at St Anthony’s Parish along with many other activities within the community. Having gone to school (St. Augustine) with Maureen, and been involved and made association with many other members of your family, I can see where Audrey’s fine influence shines through.
    God Bless you all,

  5. Tom & Susan Moore :

    Susan and I offer our condolences to my uncle Ken and all my cousins that I wish we knew better. I have very special memories of Audrey. When I was in grade 8 at Sacred Heart, Ken and Audrey lived a block away from the school. I used to alternate going to lunch at Grandma Kelly’s, Grandma Moore’s and at Ken and Audrey’s. They hadn’t started a family yet but soon had a cocker spaniel. ( think his name was Sandy) What is a bit scary is that Audrey was only 10 years older than me ! Susan and I recall their hospitality when in the summer of 1972 we drove west with our dog (Dinty Moore). Ken got us tickets to the Stampede.
    Thinking of you all
