Audre Irene ERICKSON

ERICKSON, Audre Irene

30 March 1939 ~ 22 April 2008

The mold was broken but your spirit lives on in your children and grandchildren.

Surrounded by your family, the end came peacefully at home at 4:45 AM on 22 April, 2008. You were a fighter throughout your life despite several chronic illnesses. Taking everything in stride, never complaining, never judging; you were loved by all who came in contact with you. This love continued right to the end as you were always considered to be living and not dying. Humour throughout assisted both you and your family through any tough times.

Audre is survived by her husband of 52 years, Bob; son and daughter in law, Greg Erickson and Jodi Olstead; daughter and son in law, Shannon and Rick Andersen; son and daughter in law, Brad Erickson and Megan Stone; son and daughter in law, Kurt and Barb Erickson; grandchildren Amanda, Lindsay, Dylan, Ryley and Brynn. Many relatives in BC, Alberta and the rest of Canada also survive her.

The family would like to thank all those in home care who helped Audre through the years, especially those of you who went above and beyond. You have, and always will have, a special place in the hearts of the family.

A private memorial service will be held by the family at a later date.
