Obituary of Audrey Ann Place

It is with saddened hearts that we announce the passing of Audrey Ann Place on September 27, 2021 at 72 years old. Audrey will be greatly missed by her son Tate (Kelly) and cherished by her grandchildren Hailie, Parker, Tyler and Morgan. She will be fondly remembered by her sister-in-law Shirley Debeau, and her niece and nephew Chistopher, and Tanera and their families. Audrey will be thought of often by her good friends Jill O'Guin, Donna Summerville, and Patty Turke. She is predeceased by her parents Sissy and Larry DeBeau, her brothers Jim and Les DeBeau, her son Troy Place as well as her ex-husband and friend Harold Place.

Audrey was born and raised in Fort Erie, Ontario. She was a very gifted and talented person. She enjoyed her arts and crafts; she did everything from reupholstering, to making drapes, clothing and costumes. She also enjoyed volunteering at the legion and playing darts. Audrey’s favourite place to travel was to Florida where she would visit her family on a yearly basis. Audrey cherished every moment with her family. She was a hard worker and was a proud employee at the District School Board of Niagara.

Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to Essentials Cremation and Burial Services (905-354-2133). Cremation has taken place. The family will have a private Celebration of life at a later date. A special thank you to all the Staff at Gilmore Lodge for the love and compassion that they extended towards Audrey.
