At the age of 88 years

Audrey passed away January 12 with family by her side. She was predeceased by her father, Stanley Irwin and mother Olga Irwin and son-in-law Narve D. Roen and great grandson Lincoln Narve Roen.
She is survived by her loving husband Daniel; daughter, Shaun Roen and her husband Greg Parsons; son Glenn Jones and his wife Nada as well as seven grandchildren and six great-grandchildren. All of who she loved dearly. She also has several relatives in Manitoba. Also two brothers-in-law, Alec McPherson and wife Barbara; Robert McPherson and wife Barbara; three nieces and a nephew as well as many close friends.
Audrey held many secretarial positions in newspapers, hardware, manufacturing, business and banking before retiring in 1985.
Born and raised in Winnipeg she moved to Edmonton in 1970; Calgary in 1973 where she married Daniel McPherson on June 26, 1976. They moved to Victoria in 1993 and the Shuswap in 1997.
Audrey enjoyed reading, watching old movies, playing crib to win and really enjoyed travelling to far off places but was most enthusiastic about travelling and camping with great friends and her motor home.
Her volunteer work included the 1988 Olympics in Calgary, which she enjoyed immensely.
The family thanks so very much Dr. Kevin Goldberg who did all possible during Audrey’s challenging and ever changing medical difficulties with complications; also many thanks to all the staff at Shuswap Lake General Hospital who had contact with Audrey and the staff at Bastion Place. Finally, much praise for the very special, attentive staff at Good Samaritan “Hillside Village” that was all very professional and compassionate.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Audrey’s name may be made to the Good Samaritan Hillside Village, 2891 15th Ave. NE, Salmon Arm, V1E 2B6.
My deepest condolences on the passing of Audrey, she was a great lady. I know what you are going through, it’s a very tough road–be kind to yourself, time will help the healing.
Best wishes, Donna
