Audrey Theresa Morrow (nee Eggens) passed away Nov. 8, 2007 after a long and difficult battle with cancer.
She was born Feb. 3, 1933 to John and Gladys Eggens of Manotick Station. She was the third eldest of eight children: Paul Turpin, Bella Menard (Paul), Jack Eggens (Pat), Phyllis Sigouin (Gerald), Lois Bumstead (Harold), Bill Eggens (Pat), and Susan Rosettani (Joseph).
She was deaf as a child and did not hear until the use of a hearing aid in her early teens. She persevered and managed to successfully complete her studies at Willis Business College.
She was the loving mother of seven devoted children: David Mulligan of South Mountain, Linda Mulligan (Keith Cartmell) of Calgary, Kelly McKinnon (Bruce) of Brinston, Kim Morrow (Chris Kayuk) of Ottawa, Angie Morrow (Donald Johnson) of Dixon’s Corners, Gerald Morrow (Karen) of Stampville, and Mary Morrow (Scott Kitson) of Brockville. She was affectionately known as “Mom” to Cheryl Graham of Mountain.
She had many hobbies including cross stitch, sewing, knitting, crocheting, quilting, and gardening. Her love of the outdoors and all things in it were very important to her. Her dog, Sport, was her faithful and loving companion, always at her side. She also loved to cook, and many people were welcomed to her happy table over the years. She made friends easily and was known for her happy smile, giving temperament, and thoughtful ways. Her work at the Mayfield Retirement Home in Prescott introduced her to Joanne and Pierrette, and they became affectionately known as the “The Three Musketeers.” She was an active member of “The Mermaids,” a swim group she joined whose members quickly became dear, lifetime friends. She was resourceful, never wasteful, and a strong conservationist. She believed in seeing the good in everyone, and she had admirable qualities too numerous to mention.
She is cherished by her 16 grandchildren: Donnie Johnson, Jason McKinnon (Shelley), Johnnie Johnson (Joann), Jennifer Mulligan (Christian Salmaso), Jimmy Johnson, Matthew McKinnon, Derrick Johnson, Brooke Kitson, Zacchary Kayuk, Amber Morrow, Dillan Johnson, Taylor Kitson, Kiersten Kayuk, Austin Morrow, Joshua Kayuk, and Sarah Johnson. She is loved by two great-grandchildren Destiny and Shianne.
She will always be remembered for her laughter and her smile.
The arrangements were entrusted to Marsden and McLaughlin Funeral Home in Williamsburg.
