Audrey Jean O'Krafka
Audrey Jean O’Krafka, formerly of Bluevale, passed away at Huronlea Home for the Aged, Brussels on Monday, Aug. 2, 2021. She was 89.
Audrey was the beloved wife of the late Tom O’Krafka who predeceased her on March 4, 2020 and the loving mom of Barry O’Krafka, Belgrave. She was the devoted grandma of Zack and Stephanie, Meaford and their daughters Alanna and Paige and son Liam, and Xav and Alex, Toronto and son Parker.
Audrey was eagerly awaiting the arrival of a fifth great-grandchild. She will be lovingly remembered by her nieces and nephews and their families.
Audrey was predeceased by parents Harry and Ruby (Cathers) Hastie, parents-in-law Claus and Rebecca O’Krafka, sisters Evelyn Johnson and her husband Errol, Lolo Mann and her husband Ross, brother-in-law Edward O’Krafka and sister-in-law Marie Irwin and her husband Don.
Audrey was a familiar and friendly face within her community, and her warm, kind-hearted and caring nature made her a great friend to many. As an avid sports fan, Audrey found joy in supporting minor sports by cheering on the local kids at the baseball diamond, rugby field and lacrosse and hockey arenas. You knew good things were happening when everyone’s favourite sports grandma was proudly tooting her air horn from the stands. Audrey was genuine and generous, and always kept a positive spirit even when facing life’s challenges. She will be greatly missed.
A private memorial to celebrate both Audrey and Tom’s lives will be held at a later date. Final resting place, Wroxeter Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to an athletic association of your choice would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy.
