Audrey Joan GLASS

Glass – Audrey Joan (nee Reimer), March 2, 1938 – July 31st, 2006

Audrey, beloved Mother, Sister, Aunt, Grandmother and Friend, after a brief illness passed away too soon on July 31st, 2006. Pre-deceased by husband Barry William Glass (1968) and daughter Wendy Lynn Glass (1979). She will be lovingly remembered by her daughter Brenda and son-in-law John and their children Illeanne, Marina and Robert; her sister and brother-in-law Gayleen and Joe as well as many family and friends. Born in Saskatchewan, her early interest in music and singing led to a long and rewarding career in the world of opera singing, performing with all the major opera houses in Canada. Returning to University after her retirement from singing, she obtained degrees in Education and Arts and taught English for many years for the Surrey School District. Audrey’s artistic talents were numerous and her passion for knitting, spinning, weaving and embroidery was shared with many in the Greater Vancouver Weaving and Spinning Guild and the Peace Arch Weavers and Spinners. Many family members and friends enjoy pieces of Audrey’s folk-art painting. Audrey possessed a wonderful sense of humour and gatherings at her home were filled with laughter, great food and good times. Audrey’s greatest legacy, her beloved grandchildren, will miss spending many happy hours with their Gramma Audrey. A celebration of Audrey’s life will take place at St. Andrew Wesley Church, Burrard and Nelson, on August 29th, 2006, at 1:00pm. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Peace Arch Hospital Community Health Foundation, 15521 Russell Ave. White Rock, BC, V4B 2R4.
