Audrey Day

September 2, 1925 to April 3, 2018


Passed peacefully at Chancellor Park, surrounded by her loving family, while listening to her favorite church hymns.

Audrey was born in Gaultois on Sept 2, 1925. She was a storyteller and the family historian. From the young age of 12 until well into her 70s, she was the organist to the Anglican churches in both Gaultois and Bay D’Espoir. Audrey loved to play church hymns and cards with her friends, and she was well known for her baking and gardening.

She is predeceased by her husband, Fred; parents, John and Ann Garland; brothers, Hedley, Harold and Gordon; and sisters, Mary Green and Annie Windsor.

She was a loving and devoted mother and grandmother. Audrey leaves with fond and loving memories her daughters, Judy Brushett, Jean (Paul) O’Keefe and Jocelyn Day (Ivi Hermanto); grandchildren, Duane, Stuart, Trevor, Travis, Michael, Matthew, Mark, Robert and Katherine; 6 great-grandchildren and 1 great-great-grandchild; 3 sister-in laws, Blanche Garland, Ada Day and Jean Day-Noel and a large circle of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

Judy, Jean, and Jocelyn:
So sorry to hear of your mother’s passing! She was a wonderful lady and will be missed by all who knew her. She always had great stories and spending time with her meant stories, cards and tea. I loved her bakeapple tarts. I used to take my mother (Edith Lilly) to visit her every time I came back to Newfoundland to visit. May she rest in peace
