It is with great sadness that we announce the death of our dear mother Audrey Arsenault at Orchard View Long Term Care Home in Gagetown. Born in 1927, she was the daughter of the late Raymond and Flora (Gauthier) Poirier, and the spouse of the late Ernest Arsenault, who died in 2000.
Audrey was a devoted wife, and mother to her five girls. She enjoyed getting together with her family, especially her numerous brothers and sisters. She was an excellent seamstress, making clothes for her children, grandchildren and friends.
She is survived by her five daughters, Linda Nash (the late Patrick), Carol Wood (Larry), Paula Richard (Eugene), Johanne Lanteigne (Robert) and Stacey Lane (Robert); grandchildren, Jason Nash (Beth), Michael Richard (Gillian), Sarah Aaen (Chris), Troy Lanteigne, Aaron Lane and Abigail Lane; brother, Allan Poirier (Patricia); sisters Marjorie Johnson (Ronald) and Joanne Rowan (Barry); as well as sisters-in-law Louise Poirier and Norma Poirier.
In addition to her husband and parents, Audrey was predeceased by her grandson, Adam Nash; brothers, Lloyd Poirier (Henrietta), Leo Poirier, Ken Perry (Joan) and Raymond Poirier; as well as sisters Elain Dale (Fred), Evelyn Godfrey (Gordon) and Ruth Perry.
The family would like to thank the staff of Orchard View for their excellent care of Audrey.
There will be no visitation or funeral at this time. For those who wish, memorial donations may be made to The John Wood Foundation or a charity of the donor’s choice.
