Our dear Mom passed away at the age of 88 on July 17th, at the Trinity Care Centre in Penticton, BC. She endured many medical issues over the past five years with much strength and determination and fought valiantly to the end.
Mom was born in Turtleford and raised on a farm in the surrounding area. After graduating from high school, she moved to Saskatoon and undertook training to become a registered nurse at the Saskatoon City Hospital. For many years, Mom worked at the Nipawin Hospital where her dedication and nursing skills were greatly appreciated.
In 1951, Mom married Richard (Dick) Armstrong. They farmed and raised their family in the Aylsham/Nipawin area surrounded by many other hardworking and loyal neighbours. Shortly following Dick’s sudden passing, Mom relocated to Penticton, but she never lost her keen interest in the farming operation, her dear friends or her love of Saskatchewan.
Mom enjoyed hobbies and was interested in curling, playing cards, dancing, gardening and landscaping. She was involved in the community, Kinettes and her local church. Mom had a strong faith and cherished her family and friends, loved her pets dearly and was always grateful for the Earth’s beauty.
As a devoted and proud mother, Audrey leaves behind three sons–Gary Armstrong (Donna), Nile Armstrong (Janice), Mark Armstrong, two daughters–Sue Nickel (Frank) and Lyndi Pedersen, grandchildren–
Jae Armstrong (Sloane), Chase Nickel (Alycia), Camron Armstrong (Danielle), Brooks Nickel, Jade Pedersen (Mark), Tanner Armstrong, Kerstyn Liddle (Jack) and three great grandchildren–Essie, Myla and Rylee with a fourth due any day now.
Mom lives on in our hearts as we remember her many strong virtues-
hard worker, organized, kind, honest, loving and loyal. We miss her dearly.
