I did know Avril well because we lived so far apart. I know, however, that she was a loving wife and mother and she will be greatly missed by everyone who knew her. My thoughts and prayers go to the family.
Passed away unexpectedly Sunday, September 22, 2019. Devoted mother, wife, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend. Avril, a retired teacher, touched many students’ lives during her 30 years of teaching. Avril is survived by her loving husband of 53 years Ross, her 3 children, Jennifer (Sam), Stephanie and Philip (Christine). Nana to her 4 precious grandchildren, Landon, Owen, Charlotte and Nathan. Avril will always live on through her siblings, Andrew (Rita), Gillian (Rob) and Jonathan (Carol), as well as her 7 nieces and 3 nephews. The family would also like to express their deepest gratitude to their church family at Crosspoint Baptist Church. The funeral service will be held at Crosspoint Baptist Church, 3883 Navan Road, on Saturday, September 28. The family will begin receiving friends at 10 am, with service at 11 a.m. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Avril’s memory to the College Scholarship Fund at Crosspoint Baptist Church.
