Audrey Meunier, 77

It is with great sadness that the family of Audrey Meunier announces her passing on Monday, May 26, 2014.
She was born on August 12, 1936 in Fort Frances, Ontario, to Wilfred and Audrey Locking. She married the love of her life, Michael Meunier on April 30, 1955 and enjoyed 59 years together. Audrey was very active in her community and spent many years with 4H, Women’s Institute, Legion Auxiliary, the United Church Choir, the Community Choir, United Church Women’s League, as well as helping out at the schools and for many local fundraisers.
Mom didn’t work out of the house but her family was her job, she would clean us up and we would go right out to the garage to help Dad and get all dirty again. Later as her children got older she worked from home for Artic Enterprises, sewing face masks and then went to work at Riverview School until she retired.
Mostly Mom enjoyed spending time at the cabin, especially in August when the whole family got together for summer vacation. Mom loved the lake but every time she got in the boat it would rain or the wind would come up so it was back to the cabin with a good book and her view.
She will be greatly missed by her husband Michael, children Rhonda and Brian Lange, Donna and Dwight Moen, Sharon Selman, Roger Meunier, Lawrence and Claudette Meunier; Grandchildren Mark and Aaron Lange, Christopher Lange, Travis Moen, Kyle Selman, Danielle Meunier, Ashley and Drew Seeger, Brady Meunier, Pascal and Mary-Claude Fortier, Stephane Fortier; Great Grandchildren Tanner Lange, Dylan Lange and Melody Fortier. Brother Robert (Bob) and Vivian Locking. Sisters Dixie Badiuk and Myrna and Larry Armstrong and their families.
Audrey was predeceased by her parents.
A memorial service was held on Friday, May 30, 2014 at 11 a.m. at the United Church in Rainy River, Ontario. Reverend Frances Flook officiated with interment in the Forest Lawn Cemetery.
The honourary pallbearers will be her Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren.
An Honor Guard will be provided by the Royal Canadian Legion Ladies Auxiliary.
