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.
