MCEACHERN (King), Lily Audrey Elizabeth

July 23, 1929 - February 13, 2021

It is with great sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Audrey in her 92nd year. She leaves behind John (Jack), her beloved husband of almost 70 years. She was the loving mother to Rob (Jeanette) and proud grandmother to Todd, Jocelyn (Miles), Shelby (Joe), Sarah (Kevin) and Brandon (Lyndall). Great-grandmother to Matteo and Ivy. Predeceased by her sister and best friend Dorothy Smith, and will be missed by many Smith, Wilson and Hurd nieces and nephews. Audrey was born and raised in East Garafraxa and made her home in Orton for over 60 years. She taught grades 2, 3 and 4 at Ross R. McKay Public School and was an active member of St. Andrew’s Presbyterian Church in Hillsburgh, the Orton Community Association, the Grove Cemetery and the Guelph-Wellington Retired Women Teachers. Audrey had a great love for gardening, knitting, travel, winters in Florida and playing a competitive game of euchre. In lieu of gifts or flowers, donation to the Groves Memorial Hospital, the Grove Cemetery or the Heart & Stroke Foundation of Canada would be greatly appreciated.
