Audrey Marie Dipper (Taylor) -May 16, 1928 to April 10, 2022 - Mom passed away peacefully at Albright Manor in Beamsville, Ontario on a sunny Sunday morning. How appropriate; a perfect Sunday for Mom was church, family and making Sunday dinner.
Mom was born in Hamilton and grew up at Hamilton Beach. She moved to Grimsby with her family as a teenager and married Dad in 1949. Common to many women of that era, she left her job as a Bell Telephone operator to start a family. Dad’s position with Ontario Hydro took them to Keswick where David, Ken, Cathy and Doug were raised.
A sense and service to neighbours and the church defined Mom. She was devoted to Dad and dedicated to her children; Mom personified true motherhood. She was a positive person and didn’t let life’s disappointments and health issues defeat her. She wrestled with cancer more than once. The long road of Alzheimer’s dimmed her bright light and eventually took her from us, but it never broke her spirit.
The family wishes to thank and honour the entire staff of Albright Manor for their heartfelt care. Dad has lost his bride of nearly 73 years and the children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren have lost an endearing part of their lives.
“Her children arise and call her blessed;
her husband also, and he praises her:
Many women do noble things,
but you surpass them all.” Proverbs 31:28-29
In lieu of flowers, we know that Mom would truly appreciate a donation to the Canadian Cancer Society which was near and dear to her heart.
