Emms, H. Audrey (Kitchen), in its 98th year. Born March 5, 1924 in Wasaga Beach to Fred and Clara Cook. Sister (with lots of great stories) of June (Stan Brown), Fay (Bill Gee) and predeceased by her brother Cyril (Edythe). Proud wife of 67 years of Everett Emms who died in 2012. They had 4 children – Cherie, Kerry, Randy and Lisa, 8 grandchildren (Amy, Tim, Cara, Kyle, Shane, Adam, Jake and Matt) and now 12 great-grandchildren with more to come. Our mother and father were very active in The United Church of Canada. Mom was the former president of the UCW Ladies at the Local Level (Burton Ave), Simcoe County Level, Toronto Conference Level and proudly Nationally. She has had the pleasure of meeting many women and ministers with the opportunity to speak to so many congregations throughout her busy years. She also had fond memories of New Lowel United Church. Dad had a long career at GE while Mum had her gardens and Mr. Antiques sold them from our home for many years, including the table we all sat at for a Thanksgiving meal one year! They went to lots of auctions together, she was always interested in glass, dolls, and furniture – mum would refinish the furniture and dad would cane the chairs. Mum had lots of nieces, nephews and cousins ââon the Cook side and of course the Emms gang that seemed to be endless with relatives. Friends of the Church, Allandale, Tollendal, New Lowel, IOOF Condo, and of course their Texas beach house. She was able to live independently until early December and only made a short trip to RVH. We would like to thank all PSSPs, nurses and doctors at home and during his stay in the hospital. Special thanks to his “friend” Dr Van Zyl for his continued care. Donations in memory of Audrey would be appreciated through your church, RVH, Hospice or a charity of your choice. Family and friends are invited to share their written condolences, memories and photos by visiting the Innisfil Funeral Home website. (innisfilfuneralhome.ca) A family party will be held in the spring.
