BAXTER CLARK, Audrey Audrey Baxter Clark passed away peacefully on June 30th in Edmonton, Alberta of complications due to Alzheimer's, surrounded by family and close friends. Audrey is survived by her sister Marjorie Romaniuk, daughters Rhonda Pelletier (Robert) and Kelly-Anne Hollinghead (Barry), grandchildren: Sarah Rondeau (Darren), Hope Pelletier (Brad), Luc Pelletier, Emily Hollingshead, Melina Nguyen (Jack) and great grandchildren: Emma, Wyatt, Jett, Cairo, Bron, and Amelia. Audrey was a long time resident of Black Creek and the Comox Valley. She and her late husband Bob 'gentleman' farmed in Back Creek for a number of years, with frequently hilarious tales to tell of their green-horn experiences, many of which she wrote about in an unpublished book entitled 'E-I-E-I-Oops'. She also wrote a mystery, 'The Dog's Lament', which her family self-published in time for Audrey to delight in seeing in book form. Audrey was a bank manager with the CIBC for many years, as well as a vibrant member of the local Writer's Club, Arts Council, the Lillian Lefco Society, and MacDonald Woods Society. Audrey was politically active as well, always lending a hand in fund raising, manning the phones and 'stumping' for the local candidate. She was a good friend and neighbour, a staunch supporter of many local charities and could always be counted on to express a clear opinion in the local editorial columns of the newspapers and by phone on the local radio station. Audrey was a feisty lady, who 'did not go quietly into that good night'; she fought the good fight throughout her disease. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends. A graveside service will be held at the Courtenay Civic Cemetery on Saturday, August 17th, at 1:00 pm.
