Lee, Audrey Elaine

January 19, 1932 – June 11, 2021
at the age of 89 years

Audrey Elaine Lee, 89, of Salmon Arm, British Columbia passed away on 11 June 2021.

Audrey was born in Cardston, Alberta to Joseph and Agnes Shaw the youngest of four children. She attended elementary and high school in Cardston and married her high school sweetheart, Duane Lee.  Together they lived in Sylvan Lake, Red Deer, Edmonton and settled in Calgary where Duane established his dental practice.

Audrey was a natural leader and because of her great faith she served tirelessly in her church and community. She acted as President in the Women’s Relief Society organization of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints for three different congregations as well as serving in many other capacities. She was an avid genealogist and worked over 10 years in the German Records Extraction Program and did volunteer work with her husband in the Morley Community.

Her greatest love was raising her six children giving her opportunity to let her abilities shine as a talented seamstress, cook, weaver and gardener. Her life-long interest in the spoken and written word was a blessing to her children. She had a great sense of style which she displayed with flair.

Audrey is survived by children Shawn (Jocelyn), Michelle (Bob), Margot (Jon), Brenda (Greg), Konrad (Diane) and Derek (Bonnie) and sister, Laurene Sabey.  She was blessed with 29 grandchildren and 48 great grandchildren. She is predeceased by her husband, Duane and two brothers Jim and Keith.

Special thanks to the caring staff at Good Samaritan Hillside Village who became her dear friends in her later years.

  1. To my dear Lee cousins and their families – Shawn and Jocelyn; Michell and Bob; Margo and Jon; Brenda and Greg; Konrad and Diane; and Derek and Bonnie,
    I am so sad that your sweet, lovely mother is gone. Regrettably, I did not get to see her very much in the last few years but whenever our paths did cross I was greeted warmly. We always had lively conversations due to your Mom’s bright minds and her amazing grasp of the gospel and current events. She was a kindly, interested aunt to me and I loved her dearly. I remember her love of games and jigsaw puzzles that filled our family gatherings with fun.The Italian sandwiches that your mom introduced to us are still a. family favorite. Although Aunt Audrey was failing in her later years her passing will leave a space that will never be filled. May the Lord bless you all with the peace and comfort that the gospel message brings.
    With much love and sympathy in your loss,
    Dan and Cynthia
