Audrey Elizabeth Culpin (Foster)

February 20, 1927 - February 8, 2022


Our  Mom passed away surrounded by love, family and so many happy memories.  She was an extraordinary woman who over the course of almost 95 years nurtured four kids and countless others (both human and animal) who came through her door.

Mom was a fabulous cook, an enthusiastic gardener, a gifted artist in many disciplines.  She loved the natural world, Bowen Island,  Qualicum Beach on Vancouver Island, singing, music and social gatherings of any size and for any reason.  She was incredibly kind and loving and never complained, no matter how difficult life got.  Her stoic acceptance of medical issues in her final years was an inspiration to her family, and we still find ourselves often saying, with a smile, “It is what it is”  or “It could be worse.”  She loved to laugh, was always up for some fun or silliness, and had a wicked sense of humour.

Mom’s sweet, polite demeanour  made her a favourite with her caregivers, and we feel so very fortunate that she spent her final years in the loving care of the staff at The Mayfair Senior Living and Care.  She will be missed, always, by all of us.

Audrey was predeceased by her beloved husband, Victor Albert Culpin.  She is survived by her children Shirley (Michael) Chris (Ellen), Val and Tammy Blount Canavan (Patrick), grandchildren Leigh (Cassandra), Marissa Visnjak (Robert), great-grandchildren Winston and Oscar and niece Audrey Morgan Green (David).
