SAUNDERS, Audrey Nancy. 73 years, of Chilliwack BC, passed away on the evening of May 15, 2014. Audrey was born to the late Edward and Lillie Sanborn on July 13, 1940 in Winnipeg Manitoba. She relocated to BC in 1966 along with her husband, young son and her parents. Audrey chose a career as a Registered Nurse in the 1970s and worked for 40 years at various institutions throughout the province; including hospitals, mental health facilities, the BC Cancer Agency and even 2 prisons. We can’t hope to sum up the life of our beloved Mother/Nana in a few words. Were we to try, we would say she was our favourite teacher, our self-taught computer expert, our advice columnist and the number one fan of all our activities, especially her Granddaughter’s dance competitions and recitals in her later years. She was also an avid reader, a movie buff, a coffee aficionado and an animal lover.

Audrey is survived by her dear granddaughter Kiana, daughter Dawn (Bruce), son Mike (Natalie), cousins Bernice and Nancy, many dear friends, and her two dogs, Teddy and Bear.
