Audrey Cecelia Denison (Horner)

December 10, 1917 - June 10, 2015


Audrey was born in Creelman, Saskatchewan, the fourth of seven children born to Jennie and Norval Horner. After high school matriculation, she attended the Regina Normal School for teacher training. The first job entailed a five mile ride on horseback to a country school. That January was the coldest January recorded in Saskatchewan. After a few years teaching at various points in Saskatchewan, Audrey made a career change and trained as a lab technician. She worked first at the Sanatorium in Prince Albert, then at the Essondale Hospital in Vancouver and later at the Nelson, Hospital. In later years Audrey worked for the Bitco Company in Nelson.

Audrey met Bob Denison at the Banff School of Fine Arts. Audrey was there on a drama scholarship and Bob on a music scholarship. This led to courtship and then marriage in 1955, taking up residency in Nelson. They both took great pride in their home and flower garden on Hall Street.  Bob predeceased Audrey in 1992.

Audrey was a faithful member and worker at St. Paul’s- Trinity Church. For many years she volunteered at the I.O.D.E Thrift Shop. She was a patron of the theatre and the library, and supported many of the music and art performances in Nelson. She was a true Nelsonite. She opposed any idea of a move elsewhere, choosing to remain at “home”.

A very special thanks for the love and care given to Audrey by the Sturtevant family, as well as many other close friends and neighbours. Audrey’s last years were made pleasant and pain free due to the wonderful care she received at Evergreen Cottage at Mountain Lake Seniors Community. Our very sincere thanks to all her care givers and medical staff.

Following Audrey’s wishes, there will be no service.
