Audrey Elsie Parker of Blenheim and formerly of Erieau passed away on March 11, 2019 at the age of 98 ½ years. Audrey was born in London Ontario, daughter of the late Sarah & William Punnett. She was the last surviving member of her family having been predeceased by her sister Sybil Burns (Bob) and William Punnett (Emma).
Audrey and John Byron “Jack” Parker were married for 68 years before Jack predeceased her in 2007. Together they raised three daughters; Charlotte MacDonald (George), Margaret Rose Burke (Larry) and Sandy Holdaway (Jim). They were blessed with nine grandchildren; Roderick MacDonald (Mary), Shelley MacDonald, Gregory MacDonald (Sandra), Karen McIntyre (Kevin), Suzie Rowley (Doug), Jacqui Campbell (Jeff), Debra Toll (Steve), Tricia McIntyre (Bill) and Jason Holdaway. They were further blessed with 19 great-grandchildren and nine great-great grandchildren. Audrey was looking forward to her tenth great-great grandchild in a few weeks.
For many years Audrey called Erieau home and she faithfully attended St. Paul’s Anglican Church there. After selling her home, the Legion Villa in Blenheim became her new home where she made more friends. She will be remembered for her kind soul, her keen sense of humor and her contagious laugh.
Friends and family are invited to visitation at the Blenheim Community Funeral Home on Friday from 2 – 4 & 7 – 9 p.m. A Funeral Service for Audrey will take place at the Funeral Home on Saturday March 16, 2019 at 11:00 a.m. A private family interment will take place in Evergreen Cemetery where Audrey will be laid to rest with Jack.
Friends wishing to remember Audrey with a memorial donation are asked to consider St. Paul’s Anglican Church in Erieau or the Chatham-Kent Hospice.
