JENKINS, Audrey (nee Hart)

March 8, 1928 - January 2, 2020

Audrey’s journey of 91 years began on March 8, 1928 in Littlehampton in West Sussex and ended on January 2, 2020 at Hospice Wellington in Guelph, Ontario. After time in WRAF, Audrey met and wed Roy in October 1951 in what became a loving partnership for 68 years. Audrey is survived by their daughters Heather Schubert of Sebring, Florida and Angela Lynch (Ernie), grandsons Andrew Lynch and Gavin Lynch (Sabrina), and great-grandson Emmett, all of Toronto. Also by her sisters Deirdre Gussenhoven of South Africa and Terry Pullen of England, nephews and nieces. In 1957, Audrey, Roy and daughters emigrated to Canada, living in Etobicoke for 44 years before moving to Rockwood in 2002. During those years, Audrey was much sought after for her typing and secretarial skills, working in Etobicoke pharmacy offices and in Roy’s financial consulting company. Her social life included singing alto in their local choir. Audrey also owned and operated the Houghton Bridge Tea Gardens near Amberley in West Sussex from 1977-1982. Roy and Audrey travelled widely on business and visiting their vacation homes in Sebring and the U.K. A serious fall in 2015 led to a succession of ailments, including dementia. Our grateful thanks go to Dr. Rabia Khan and to the nursing staff at Guelph General Hospital and Hospice Wellington. Friends will be received at Gilbert MacIntyre and Son Funeral Home, Hart Chapel, 1099 Gordon St, Guelph, on Friday, January 10, 2020 from 10:00am – 12:00pm.
