We Remember

TUCKER, Audrey

October 5, 1931 — June 24, 2023

Audrey passed away peacefully on June 24, 2023, at the age of 91. She was born and raised in Verdun, Quebec.

Left to treasure her memory is her husband of 69 years, Cliff Tucker, cherished children: Debbie Tucker (Andy), Jeff Tucker (Laura), and Wendy Purcer (Tim), her many beloved grandchildren and her sister Carol Kroschel.  She was predeceased by her brother Ron Nurse and sister-in-law Norma James. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

Some of the many things that Audrey will be remembered for were her kindness, the importance of each of her relationships, and how she treated everyone the same. She was dedicated to loving her family & friends with everything she had.

Audrey’s early career found her as a stenographer at Bell Telephone and at Sears once we moved to St. Catharines.  Her love of the outdoors and athletic talents led her to become a horseback rider, lifeguard, ski patrol, curler, tennis player, sailor, hiker, and camper. She also loved dancing, choir and fitness class.  She was a brownie leader and enjoyed volunteering.

Tidy and efficient, Audrey was a great homemaker.  She enjoyed sewing, knitting, crocheting and cross-stitch.  A wonderful baker and cook, she loved having family and friends over for meals and special treats or roller-blading a fresh loaf of bread to her tennis community in Florida. Most of all, Audrey knew how to make a house a home.

Thank you to 4E staff at KGH, especially Lisa and Molly, as well as the staff at Hospice House.  We were so touched by your love and care for Mom.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations for Audrey can be made to Kelowna General Hospital (KGH Foundation), Central Okanagan Hospice Association (COHA), or a charity of your choice.
