Condolences & Memories (1 entries)
My sincere sympathy to Audrey's family. Audrey was a lifelong learner and social justice advocate. I will remember Audrey as a networker and distributor of important information that was taking place in Winnipeg and elsewhere in the world, whether it was a pamphlet or a petition to bring attention to an injustice. She was a dedicated member of so many organizations, the ones that come immediately to mind are the Global Justice Film Festival Steering Committee, Kairos, MATCH International and the United Church. I recall the dilemma she would have with her past professional life as a Public Health Nurse and her community activism when it came to potlucks. She was not an advocate of potlucks... they made her nervous, that someone or many would get sick. Rest in peace dear friend. You fought the good fight, you finished the race and you kept the faith. I will remember you Audrey. Janice Hamilton - Posted by: Janice Hamilton (Social Justice colleague) on: Sep 14, 2019
