French, Audrey (Tembey)  
Sadly we said goodbye to Audrey, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend to many. After a lengthy illness, she's headed for that perfect campsite in the sky. Audrey was predeceased by her parents, Sam and Annie Tembey, brother William and sister Florence (Gordon). Born in Nanaimo, April 30, 1928, Audrey grew up during coal-mining times in Harewood. As a child she moved several times: to Cumberland, to Duncan and finally to Lake Cowichan. There she met the love of her life, John French and began a family, with a son (Barry) and a daughter (Sandra). Fond memories of amazing friendships, times with the volunteer firemen, and fantastic camping trips began. The family cabin at Nanaimo Lakes was also a place of memories and has been enjoyed by generations since. The family moved to Nanaimo in 1970 where John worked at CIPA Lumber Co. and Audrey raised the children, baked her famous Welsh cakes and loved to have a house full of company. Always a hostess, you never left the house hungry or thirsty. In retirement, John and Audrey loved to travel with friends and to camp, when they weren't excitedly watching their grandchildren grow up. Saturdays at the Legion meat draw became a new tradition. We will miss Audrey very much. She leaves behind her husband of 61 years, John, her son Barry (Linda) and daughter Sandra (Jeff Kidd). As well, the six grandchildren, Nicole, Laura (Kurtis), Scott (Kristal), Heather, Tanya and Derek. Four little great grandchildren, Bennett, Jack, Aiden and Nora will hear lovely stories about Audrey. A special thank you to Dufferin Place and to Woodgrove Manor for the loving care they provided. An Open House will be held Saturday, April 11, 1-4 pm, at 6891 Rosalyn Cr., Lantzville, BC.
