Hoggard, Audrey Isobel

Born in Collingwood Township on February 21, 1926, a daughter of the late Roy and Ethel (nee Allcock) Ferris, Audrey passed away peacefully at Errinrung Residence in Thornbury on Friday November 15, 2019 at the age of 93.

A longtime resident of Thornbury, Audrey was predeceased by her loving husband Thomas Hoggard in 1989. She is remembered as the dearly beloved mother and “Mom” of Shirley Foster of Thornbury.  She was predeceased by her daughter Gloria Jean Cornfield in 2003 and by her son Bryan Hoggard in 2019, both of Collingwood.   Audrey will be recalled fondly as a dear mother-in-law by Blair Cornfield and Beth Hoggard both of Collingwood.  She was predeceased also by a daughter-in-law Christine Hoggard in 1990.

Audrey was the much loved Nana and Gramma of nine grandchildren: Jody Scott (Joe), Scott Foster (April Akerfelt), Stacey Flint (Trevor), Terri Lyn Eichenburger (Jeff), Ashley McGregor (Warren), Thomas Hoggard (Baan), Kimberly Gosset (Norm), Andrew Reiche (Angie) and Stephanie Reiche (Stephen McCullough).  She cherished her eleven great-grandchildren:  Lauryn Scott, Ella and Georgia Eichenburger, Noah and Ryker Flint, Ronan, Ava and Maeve McGregor, Bruce Gosset, and Cash, Nahanni and Sawyer Reiche.

She was the dearest sister-in-law of Alice  Hoggard of Thornbury and will be sorely missed by her devoted friend Marie Turner of Meaford.

Cremation has taken place and a memorial service celebrating Audrey’s life will be conducted at Saint Paul’s Presbyterian Church in Thornbury on Thursday November 21st at 1 p.m. where family will receive friends the hour prior to service and at a reception to follow.

A private family service of committal and interment will take place at Thornbury-Clarksburg Union Cemetery.

    Audrey was a very ‘Special’ lady. Audrey never came for a visit without something she had made that morning. My thoughts are with all of you. I am sure there is still a smile on her face.

    To Audrey’s Family – I was sorry to hear of Audrey’s passing. I have known her all of my life & I have many wonderful memories of times spent together – especially when we were growing up on the 10th Line.
    She had a ‘heart of gold’ & was always willing to help where ever & when ever she could to make someone’s life easier. She will be missed. Thinking of you all but especially you, Shirley. Your Friend, Bonnie Hammond

    Shirley and Family,

    Sincerest sympathy to you and your family. She will be remembered as a very kind and friendly person. Whenever I saw her, she would always have a story to tell me about my father, Vernon Moore when they lived across the road from each other.

    Shirley and family. My thoughts are with you at this sad time. Words cannot express the emptiness, however having her to age 93 is wonderful in itself. Hold on to the memories, the pictures, and all the kind words from all the people who knew her.
    Her smile is always with you.
