Audrey’s interests were eclectic. She collected hospital post cards from across Canada, which reflected her training as a nurse (that same training she put to good use in Hay River). Before the hospital in Hay River had a Lab Technician, she cross-matched blood. Audrey was responsible for organizing the setup of Woodland Manor - a Senior Citizen Care Home - and chaired the Board until the Coverts left the Territories. Her hobbies included collections of many things – owl figurines in particular come to mind. A very special hobby was bird-watching – something she was able to do even this last year, when Earle would take her out on day trips. She loved travel, and was particularly sad not to come to BNAPEX 2013 CHARLOTTETOWN – the first convention she had missed in many years - because it meant missing not only old friends, but also family in New Brunswick. She loved making Christmas pajamas for her grandchildren, and baking and canning.
