She was predeceased by her parents and her sister Kannie Hoy and sister-in-law Naka Sasaki. She will be deeply missed by her grandchildren Jessica (Taro), Caleb, Dominique, Jesse, Sasha, Ben, Mitchell, Conrad, Jack and Charlie; and her great-grandchildren Lily and Charlie. Audrey was born in Vancouver, BC, on May 25, 1931 to Shuichi and Midori Sasaki. She moved to Toronto with her family in 1943 and graduated from the School of Nursing at the Hospital for Sick Children in 1954. In 1957, she married Roy Fukuzawa. Audrey was a deeply spiritual person who loved her family above all other things. Through all her volunteer activities, as well as her nursing and teaching of disabled children at Keelesdale pre- school, Audrey focused on caring for others. She had a great love of quilting, travel, Tai Chi, card games, taking long walks with Roy and enjoying time with her large extended family and many friends. She was an active member of her church and her strong faith and sense of compassion guided her life. In her children and grandchildren, she leaves behind a rich legacy of memories, laughter and love. We are grateful for all the support that we have received from family and friends during this difficult time. Friends may call at Pine Hills Cemetery, 625 Birchmont Rd., on Thursday, April 15 between 1-4 p.m. and 6-9 p.m. A Funeral Service will be held on Friday, April 16 at 2 o'clock at the Centennial - Japanese United Church (CJUC), 49 Bogert Ave., Toronto.
