Farrow age 84, of Amherst announce her passing on Wednesday, September
14, 2011 at the Moncton Hospital. Born in Amherst, Audrey was the eldest
daughter of the late Nathan and Mary (LeBlanc) Cormier. Audrey's family
was her main focus and her world revolved around them and had a true
love for children. She was a devote Roman Catholic whose favourite day
was Sunday which was important to her for church and family time. Being
the oldest, Audrey was the family matriarch, caring for many of her
brothers and sisters from an early age. She was a loving wife to her
husband Fred of 61 years and together had three sons Tommie (Annie) of
Athabasca, Alberta, and their children Jennifer, Courtney and Megan;
Ronnie (Crystal) of Winnipeg, Manitoba, and their children John, Jessica
and Febra; and David (Catharine) of Sudbury, Ontario, and their son
Wilson and five great grandchildren. Audrey also is survived by one
sister Eleanor (Roger) Arseneau of Truro, two brothers Lawrence (Palm)
of Amherst and Gerry (Martha) of Amherst and many, many nieces and
nephews. She was predeceased by sisters Jean Estabrooks and Deanna
MacLeod and brothers Ronnie, Raymond, Roy, Dougie, Leon and Joseph.
Audrey's love of life and great sense of humour will be missed by all.
