With great sadness, the family of Audrey King, announce her peaceful passing at Dunrovin Park Lodge on July 8, 2015.
Audrey was born June Audrey Ostlund on June 30, 1929 in Broadview, Saskatchewan to parents Olaf and Hilda Ostlund. She married Alfred King in 1955 and soon after they made the move to Quesnel, B.C. where Alf was working in logging, and where all four of her children were born and still reside.
Audrey took an active part in the community, being a member and/or volunteer of the Quesnel Curling Club, Quesnel Senior’s Center, Dunrovin Lodge, Quesnel Legion Ladies Auxiliary, United Church, Social Credit Party, the Vasa Lodge, Red Hat Society, Canadian Cancer Society and Billy Barker Days. She kept busy travelling with many of her good friends, exercising in the pool and coffee with the girls, curling, bowling, golfing, playing horseshoes, knitting, crocheting, embroidery, jigsaw puzzles, crosswords, playing cards and playing Mrs. Claus. And yet she was always there for her family. She was Mom, Step-Mom, Sister, Grandma, Big Grandma, Auntie Audrey, and friend to many.
Audrey was predeceased by her parents, her brothers Lennart and Wilbert, and Great-Grandson Gavin Ernst. She is survived by her brothers Harvey and Lockie (Lorraine) Ostlund, her Step-Son Ken (Wendy), children Kelly (Teresa), Candace (Gerald), Kevin (Rosemary) and Colleen (Rick). She also leaves 13 Grandchildren, Wade (Lisa), Stuart (Viktoria), Alanna (Adam), Alissa (Josh), Riley (Karissa), Janelle, Callie, Jason (Christie), Jeff (Jolene), Shawna (James), Rebbecca (Curtis), Jared (Elise) and Kelly along with 19 Great-Grandchildren.
The family would like to thank Dunrovin Park Lodge staff for their loving care of our Mom and Grandma. Thank you to the Quesnel Senior’s Center for supplying the food and refreshments for the Memorial Tea. Thank you to Clayton’s Funeral Directors for their compassion and assistance. And a very special thank you to all family and friends who showed their love and support with flowers, food, cards, notes, comments and hugs.
