SHAW, Audrey

It is with broken hearts that we announce the passing of our beautiful mother, Audrey Lenore Shaw. Audrey passed away peacefully, with family at her side, on Wednesday, November 8, 2023 at the age of 92. Audrey was a loving mother of Lauren Veitch (Brian), Linda Linforth; Grandma (Nana) to Connor Veitch (Shauna), Braedon Linforth, Spencer Veitch, Ryan Linforth; Great Nana to Maxwell Veitch, Shay Veitch; and was predeceased by her loving husband Barton Shaw, lifelong companions for 72 years. Audrey was predeceased by her siblings Hilda Stevenson, Jeannie Lozo, Lawerence Kolisnyk.

Born in Winnipeg, Manitoba to loving parents William Nicholas Kolisnyk and Anastasia Kolisnyk (nee Smelsky) on October 1, 1931; Audrey moved to Vancouver after the war. She possessed a beautiful singing voice and was asked to join a group that performed every Saturday night at the “Y”. There she met and fell in love with the drummer of the band, Bart; they were married in June 1953.

Audrey was full of love and shared that love with everyone. She had an incredible life with her family and life long wonderful friends; met during their 46 years of boating on the Shalady, and later cruising the province joining the Old English Car Club. They enjoyed travel around the world, celebrating life’s special moments with many parties, and truly had a life full of adventure.

The last fifteen months were difficult for Audrey, missing holding hands with her greatest love; but we truly believe she is now holding hands again with Dad, with their adored pet Charlie by their side.

Please join us for a special celebration of Mom’s life, to be held on Monday, November 20, at Noon at the Richmond Funeral Home, 8420 Cambie Road in Richmond, BC.
