KERR, Audrey Gladys

August 1, 1931 - July 10, 2021

With great sadness we announce the quiet and peaceful passing of Audrey Gladys Kerr at The Village of Aspen Lake Long Term Care home in Windsor on Saturday July 10, 2021, just 3 weeks shy of her 90th birthday. Beloved mother of David (Jeanette Fenty), Edward, Donna (Mike Terhart), Robert, and John (Angela Singh). Cherished grandmother of Laura, Michael, Matthew, Natasha, Kierani, Maggie, Hannah; and great-grandmother of Sydney. Audrey was the only child predeceased by her mother Beatrice Hamilton (1993) and father Garnet Inkpen (1932). Widow of John Fraser Kerr (2007). Audrey was born in Peterborough, lived in Toronto, Montreal, Mono Mills, Brighton, Mount Forest and spent her final months in Windsor visited and cared for daily by her son Robert. Audrey’s lifelong career was in the legal profession where she held jobs as a legal secretary and office manager for several lawyers and retired after years of working in the legal department at Manulife in Toronto. Audrey had a passion for gardening, knitting, crocheting, bridge and bowling and was always willing to share her talents at every opportunity. Her love for cats and dogs over the years led to her breeding shelties and pedigreed cats. Her home was never without a loved pet. Audrey is best known for her sharp and witty personality. Her friends will remember her for many good laughs and cherished times together. She will be greatly missed by her friends in Mount Forest where she actively served in community outreach at the Louise Marshall Hospital, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 134 and the Mount Forest seniors bowling and bridge clubs. The family is extremely grateful to Bertha and Harvey Jackson, Myrna and Doug McTavish and the many friends who went out of their way to help Audrey on a regular basis. The family would like to thank the staff at the Grand River Regional Cancer Centre and the Windsor Regional Cancer Centre for their exceptional medical care and support during Audrey’s diagnosis and treatments for lung cancer. The family would also like to thank the staff at Royal Terrace (Palmerston), Lifetimes on Riverside (Windsor) and The Village of Aspen Lake (Windsor) for their heroic acts of care and compassion amidst limited visiting with pandemic restrictions where she could not be surrounded by her family and friends leading up to her final days. In honour of Audrey’s wishes, cremation has taken place. A private family celebration of life will be held at a later date. Inurnment will be held at Glen Oaks Memorial Gardens (Oakville). In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to The Canadian Cancer Society or The Canadian National Institute for the Blind. Online condolences may be left at
