AUDREY PATRICIA HARWOOD NORDSTROM
Passed on: January 13th, 2013
It is with deep regret that the family of Audrey Patricia Harwood Nordstrom announce her passing on January 13, 2013 after a long and courageous battle with cancer.
Audrey, a loving, caring, and generous mother, teacher, and friend, passed peacefully surrounded by members of her immediate family. Audrey taught many students over the years in Revelstoke, Lytton, and Kamloops, retiring from the Kamloops School District in 1981. She filled her retirement enjoying golf at the Quilchena Golf Course, singing with the Kamloops Happy Choristers, attending the Kamloops Symphony Orchestra, researching the family tree, gardening, and spoiling her children and grandchildren.
Pre-deceased by her 2nd husband, Doug Haywood in 1994, she is survived by son Laurie (Sandra); daughter Mavis, son Alan (Gwen), grandchildren Lauren, Mickayla, Brianna, and Caleb as well as many extended family members of the Haywood family.
Audrey was known for her generosity, continually upbeat and caring manner and will be sorely missed by her family, friends, and many wayward youths she gave a home to in their time of need. Our world is a sadder place without her presence.
Audrey had requested that in lieu of flowers, donations be made in her name to the Canadian Cancer Society which she supported her entire life.
A Service Celebrating Audrey's exemplary life will be held at the Kamloops Funeral Home at 285 Fortune Drive, Kamloops, B.C. on Saturday, February 2, 2013 at two o'clock in the afternoon.
