AUDREY BERNICE BOOTH April 2l, 1926 - August 23, 2018 Audrey passed away peacefully at the Health Sciences Centre on August 23, 2018, at the age of 92. She leaves to mourn her passing her children: Gale Scheelar (Irv), Audrey McWilliams (Robert), Ray Porteous (Lorraine), Stewart Porteous (Joanne), Tim Porteous (Delores), Rick Porteous (Lynda), Debbie Jordan (Dave) and William Stratton (Vanessa), and their families. Audrey was born and raised in Winnipeg. As a young girl, she was involved with the Scottish Highland Games where she became a champion Scottish Highland dancer and won numerous trophies, awards, medals and cups. At the age of 18, she joined the Canadian Womens Corps and was deployed to the United Kingdom performing in the Canadian Army Shows as a singer and dancer for a number of years. Once back from the war Audrey took on the role as caregiver and managed and operated care homes in Winnipeg. Later Audrey resided at the Autumn House Retirement Home for 21 years, where she made some very close friends. The celebration of her 90th birthday with her family was a highlight for her. She received letters from provincial and federal dignitaries and Queen Elizabeth II (with whom she shared the same birthday). Audrey loved watching sports on TV golf, curling and the Winnipeg Blue Bombers. She enjoyed reading crime novels and mysteries and would write of her time in the army. Many thanks to the doctors and staff at Unit 4A Health Sciences Centre Emergency Department for your kind and compassionate care. Funeral service will take place at Thomson Funeral Home, 669 Broadway on Tuesday, September 4 at 10:00 a.m. A private family interment to follow.
