WARREN, Avis Katherine. Our beloved wife, mother and grandmother left us ever so gently and peacefully in the early morning hours of August 7, 2011, in Abbotsford, BC. Avis was born in Victoria, BC on March 3, 1937. She was predeceased by her father Harry, by her mother Gladys and, most recently, by her brother Donald this past spring. Her memory will live on in her loving husband, Al, her children, Antoinette (Steve), Sandra, Todd (Lisa) and Noelle (Markus), her grandchildren, Christian, Carly, Nicholas, Benjamin, Oliver and Peanut. Avis led a quiet life, though those who had the good fortune to come to know and love her were blessed by her warmth, humour, generosity and kindness. She was a woman of considerable strength and courage, as she demonstrated by her many years of living with rheumatoid arthritis. An avid sports fan, she was known to loudly share her feelings about her Canucks and Lions, win or lose. Politics was no less a sport for her as well. Avis’ life was devoted to her family, and her legacy will be the values and spirit that she has left with us. A celebration of Avis’ life will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations to The Arthritis Society would be greatly appreciated.
