COLLINGS (Smith), Audrey Marie

October 14, 2017 - December 23, 2017


Born Audrey Smith in Hamilton, Ontario. As a young adult Audrey became a member of the RCAF reserves where she met her sole mate Dale Collings. The couple soon married and spent a short time in Cold Lake, Alberta before being posted to Marville France where they had their first two children. After four years abroad, Audrey and Dale moved to the Comox Valley, where they had their third child. Audrey worked at several jobs over the years but in 1978 Audrey and her Husband embarked on an exciting new opportunity and together bought and operated a men’s clothing store in the Driftwood mall. They would run the business for the next 15 years and then retire to enjoy life and their grandchildren. Audrey was also a huge baseball fan never missing a game of her beloved Toronto Blue Jays.

A devoted wife and mother, Audrey is pre-deceased by husband Dale, and survived by sons Roy (Deborah) Stephen, and daughter Lorraine (Mitchell), grandchildren, Jason, Mathew and Tarryn and great grandchildren, Harrison, Rosalie, and Quinn.

Audrey enjoyed the laughter and companionship of her family and friends. She had a sharp wit and would always try to find the best in people. Sadly, Audrey passed away quietly in the night of December 23rd. We honor our mother`s wishes in having no service and know that she is loved and will be forever in our hearts.

Arrangements have been placed in the care of Eric Toneff.

I would like to offer my sincerest condolence to the Collings Family on the passing of their Mother, grandmother, Mother in Law and great grandmother. I had the pleasure of knowing Audrey for over 30 years and considered her my friend. We didn’t see each other as often as we would have liked but the friendship was always there. She was a really great lady and will be missed by all who knew her. We will meet again and have a coffee and visit . You were one of the best and may you rest in peace. Your Friend Sharon.
