LAMACRAFT, Audrey Margret (née OKE)
Born May 16, 1913 in Winnipeg, Manitoba. Daughter of George Richardson OKE and Betrice May MILLS. Longtime resident of Copper Cliff, Ontario. Died peacefully in her 94th year October 4, 2006 at Mount Sinai Hospital, Toronto after a brief illness. Predeceased by her beloved husband Jack LAMACRAFT in 1991. She is survived by her daughter Marie TINCOMBE- SHAW, her sons George, John and Ralph, her daughters-in-law Anna (Cliffe), Linda (Burns), and Anne (Karvanen), and by her 12 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren. She is also survived by her brother Lloyd OKE and her other brothers Orville and George having predeceased her. Audrey will be remembered as a strong willed, independent, determined woman and a true character. She set a high moral standard. Honesty, integrity, the work ethic, thrift and the golden rule were herbasic rules. The bedrock of her life was a strong and happy 58 year marriage and everything else flowed from this. She was always intensely absorbed in the welfare of all in her clan. As a young girl she learned to 'read tea leaves' from a neighbour friend of her mother's. Audrey had a gift or some kind of sixth sense for this and was extremely prescient at reading people. She was a lifelong avid bridge player and had her senior masters card. She loved party games of all kind. She enjoyed travel and visited many different countries and well into her eighties, after the death of her husband, had several travel adventures on her own, one to Russia. To Audrey everything and anything was possible. She had a natural curiosity about people and things and despite some short term memory problems in the last several years this trait remained strong to the end. She had a full life. Audrey lived her last six years at Fellowship Towers. She found it herself and she loved the place. The family would like to express their gratitude to the management and staff for providing a safe, secure, warm and cheerful environment for senior citizen assisted living. A private family celebration of her life was held at the Church of St. Clements Eglinton on October 6, 2006. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Trull 'North Toronto' Funeral Home and Cremation Centre. The family requests that those who wish to remember Audrey can make a gift in her name to the Alzheimer Society or a charity of their choice.
