Audrey was born in Saskatchewan and moved to British Columbia when she was five years old where she believed she was going to be able to climb a strawberry tree. In her teen years she worked at the apple packing plant. Audrey later met Lloyd and they married August 4, 1948. She and Lloyd raised their five children at the same homestead as she was raised on. Audrey was an employee of Sears Canada, where she made life long friends. Audrey was a fabulous cake decorator and enjoyed doing birthday cakes for family and friends; her passion though was creating masterpiece wedding cakes.
