DAOUST, Sister Audrey Mary Ann

May 23, 1940 – Estevan, Saskatchewan
October 17, 2017 – Calgary, Alberta

Sister Audrey Daoust, Sister of Charity of St. Louis, died peacefully at Father Lacombe Care Center in Calgary, AB, on Tuesday, October 17, 2017 at the age of 77 years, and fifty-eight years of religious life after a long bout with cancer.

Audrey was born in Estevan, SK and grew up on a farm near Torquay, SK. In 1956 she joined the Sisters of Charity of St. Louis and made her first profession in 1959. Her years of service included fifteen years of teaching (Marquis, Moose Jaw, Melville, Regina SK, and Medicine Hat, AB), eight years in Home Care Service (Regina, SK) and twenty years as chaplain at the Pasqua Hospital (Regina, SK).

Audrey was a woman of many talents. She had an artistic nature and used her creativity in both her ministry and community. She had a love for people which naturally superseded her notion of time! Audrey was a very good teacher and she enjoyed ministering to people in their homes, but her greatest love was doing chaplaincy work; there she excelled and her care and compassion was very much appreciated by the patients and their families. She had a way of recruiting volunteers who have stayed loyal to her and this ministry over the years.

Sister Audrey will be lovingly remembered by her SCSL Sisters; her family Elaine (Britt) Gedak, Donnie (Ron) Eisler, Vivean (Gerald) Mack, Pat (Ed) Hutt, Brenda (Mark) Walliser, Bill Daoust; sisters-in-law Margaret Daoust and Kathy Daoust; numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, friends and co-ministers. She was predeceased by her parents, Leon and Zita Daoust; her brothers Gaylord and Percy.

We are grateful for the excellent care given to Audrey by the staff at Father Lacombe Care Center, Calgary, and Dove House, Regina.

Funeral Mass will be celebrated at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church (640 – 19th Avenue N.W.) on Saturday, October 21, 2017 at 10:30 a.m. Those wishing to pay their respects may do so prior to the Funeral Mass at 9:30 a.m. at the Church. Reception to follow at the Church. Graveside Service to follow at Queen’s Park Cemetery. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

  2. I was only in the company of Sister Audrey a few times, but found her to be a very warm, caring & compassionate person. She was very devoted to her religious sisters as well as to her family. Sister Audrey was very respected in her role as chaplin. People would approach her years later to thank her for the help she had provided to them in stressful times. My prayers are with the Daoust family at this sad time. RIP Sister Audrey – your job on earth is complete!

  5. Sincere condolences to the family and religious family of Audrey. We were companions in community many years ago. I treasure meeting Audrey in Regina a few years ago as she shared her determination in defeating her cancer. A lovely person who touched many of us.
