MORRISON, Audrey (nee Adams) 1908 - 2006 Audrey (nee Adams) Morrison, aged 97, passed away peacefully on Sunday, November 19, 2006. Born in Tofield, Alberta on December 27, 1908, she will be lovingly missed by son Neil (Shirley) Morrison, daughter Marilyn Burtt, daughter Gail (Chuck) Thompson; grandchildren, Wayne (Mary) McElroy, Vicki (John) Schleppe, Bryan (Patty) McElroy, Valerie (Ian) Brown, Michael (Rona) McElroy, Jill (Brian) Neufeld, Neil (Lisa) Thompson, Margie (Vin) Fichter, Steven (Marlie) Burtt and David (Chris) Burtt; nineteen great-grandchildren, Michael Schleppe, Audrey Carmel McElroy, Caitlyn Schleppe, Matthew Brown, Taylor McElroy, Cassidy McElroy, Lindsay Neufeld, Jared McElroy, Vanessa Brown, Jordan McElroy, Adam Schleppe, Rochelle Thompson, Jacob Thompson, Alyssa Burtt, Lindie Burtt, Stephanie Burtt, Jaime Burtt, Matthew Fichter, Vanessa Fichter; and one brother-in-law Mel (Illina) Morrison. Audrey was predeceased by her beloved husband Roy in 1986; son Wayne in 1997; parents, Harvey and Maude Adams; brother Art Adams; and sons-in-law, Murdoch McElroy and Donald Burtt. Affectionately known to most as Granny, Mom and her brother Art were the children of early Alberta pioneers. After leaving Oklahoma for Montana, Audrey's father and mother moved to Edmonton and formed a partnership to establish one of Edmonton's first butcher shops known as Morton and Adams. With the coming of the Grand Trunk Railway and on the award of a contract from Pat Burns, the business was moved to Tofield in order to supply the construction crews with meat. In 1919 the family moved to Calgary where Harvey owned and managed the livestock commission firm of Adams, Wood and Weiller. Mom was very proud of her roots and was an active member of the American Women's Club and was a great fan of the Calgary Stampede, having attended every year until frail health prevented her attendance. Audrey and Roy met as teenagers and they were married in 1932. They enjoyed a wonderful fifty-four year marriage raising their four children through the joys and challenges common to all. Upon Dad's passing in 1986, in an effort to combat her grief, Mom became a very active member of the fitness program at The Glencoe Club where she had many friends. True independence was defined by Mom, deciding for herself when it was time to move from her home on Royal Avenue to Trinity Lodge as well as the decision as to when her driving days were over. These were not easy choices for Mom, but she felt privileged to be able to make them on her own. Never wanting to be an imposition on the family which gave her great joy, Mom passed away as she would have wished, at peace and without the loss of her independence. We will miss her dearly. A Memorial Service will be held at Scarboro United Church, 134 Scarboro Avenue S.W., Calgary, on Thursday, November 23 at Noon with the Very Rev. Bill Phipps, Presider.

Box 5002, Red Deer, Alberta T4N 5Y5. HERITAGE FUNERAL SERVICES "Heritage Funeral Home" Telephone: 299-0100.
