Audrey Bondar

June 26, 1930 – May 19, 2013

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Audrey Bondar, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She is predeceased by her husband Fred, son Barry, sisters Merri Cameron and Marjorie Jeffes, and brother Hugh Cameron. Survived by her son Greg, daughter-in-law Cecelia and grandchildren Laura and Derek, sister-in-law Rose, as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

In 1930 Audrey and her brother Hugh were the first twins ever born in the Hanna Hospital in Alberta. Audrey was a devoted wife and mother, and an active member in the Knox Presbyterian Church in Calgary. Due to Fred’s job, he and Audrey were able to live in many diverse locations around the world. Semi-retirement brought them to North Saanich, where they built their dream house. For several years, Audrey was a dedicated volunteer in the extended care ward at Saanich Peninsula hospital.

Always a great conversationalist, Audrey enjoyed visiting by phone or in person with her many friends and relatives that were scattered across Canada. Positive-minded and with a huge heart, she always made people around her feel comfortable and at home. Audrey especially loved to spend time with her two grandchildren. She has touched the lives of many with her compassion and generosity. She will be greatly missed.

Memorial services will be held at 2:00 pm on June 1, 2013 at First Memorial Funeral Services, located at 4725 Falaise Drive in Victoria.
