WILSON, Audrey Joan

August 30, 1929 – Calgary, Alberta
June 24, 2017 – Calgary, Alberta

We sadly announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother (GG) at the South Calgary Health Centre on Saturday, June 24, 2017 at the age of 87, after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

Mom was very dedicated to her family and she enjoyed every opportunity to make connections at any time when the opportunity arose. Golfing and camping at River Ridge RV Park as well as her usual Happy Hour were her favourite social activities. Mom was among the original members of the Ladies League at Shaganappi Golf Course. Mom and Dad spent years travelling by motorhome throughout Canada, and the U.S.A. finally settling down for the winter months in Mesa, AZ.

A special thank you to all her friends at the Garrison Manor who were so important to her.

Mom is survived by her 2 sons, Dennis (Brenda) and Brent; daughter, Debbie (Gord); grandchildren, Mike (Ashley), Jen (Brent), Stacey (Dave), Tanya, Kelsey and Carlee (Pag); brother, Bill (Jocelyn); great-grandchildren, Lexi, Easton, Addison, Max and Jackson who all adored their GG.

Mom was predeceased by her husband, Don in 2008; nephew, Doug (2011), nieces, Melanie (2011) and Sandy (2017); sister, Norma and brothers, Ross and Ron.

A Celebration of Audrey’s Life will be held at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY (Park Memorial, 5008 Elbow Drive S.W. Calgary, AB) on Sunday, July 2, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. Reception to follow at the Funeral Home. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. If friends so desire, memorial tributes may be made directly to the Alberta Cancer Foundation c/o Tom Baker Cancer Centre, 1331 – 29 Street NW, Calgary, AB T2N 4N2. Our special thanks to the doctors and nurses on Unit 58 at the South Calgary Health Centre.

  3. A great lady who has left several great families behind her. She was truly a wonderful person, who will be missed by many. The saying goes that they ‘threw away the mold’, but in this case the mold was used to create three wonderful children who molded wonderful families of their own, and the beat goes on….. now she is pain free and reunited with her beloved Don.
    Our sincere condolences to all.
    Keep that mold…… she’s a beauty!!

    Audrey was a great lady who left her mark on many hearts. She was a special lady…after all who else would be known by so many endearing names to so many…Mom, Grandma, GG? She was indeed the”Mom” of River Ridge. We are thankful to have had the privilege to know her. You will be missed GG!
