Audrey Roberta McCrea, beloved wife, mother, sister and friend, passed away in Gravelbourg on August 30, 2017 at the age of 85 years. Audrey was born at Melaval, Saskatchewan on October 3, 1931. She is predeceased by her husband of 62 years Allen McCrea, parents Lawrence and Mary (nee Theis) Anderson and Ezra (Pete) Johnson, sisters Bev (Bruce) Mann and Kay (Dean) Hotchkiss.
Audrey will be missed by all whose lives she touched, including her brother Lynn (Carolyn) Anderson, sister Marg (Wayne) Muirhead, her children Connie (Barry) Kennedy, Lynette (Bill) Greffard, Tom (Janet) McCrea, Leonard (Debbie) McCrea, Tim (Jane) McCrea, Sherry McCrea (Ken Roang), Jody Wise (Rob Lackmantz), and her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
Audrey loved her family and friends, especially her grandchildren and greatgrandchildren. She enjoyed being part of her church and community, spending time with family, gardening, and shopping. In her younger years she liked nothing better than riding through the hills on horseback. Audrey worked as a stenographer, census taker, salesperson, caretaker and caregiver; but her most important job was being a wife, mother and grandmother.
Please join us to honour our Mother at a memorial to be held at the Gravelbourg Church of Christ building on Saturday, September 9th at 11 am. You are invited to join the family for lunch at the Gravelbourg Parish Hall immediately following the funeral.
