Audell was born on July 18, 1932. Her earthly journey ended on April 19, 2019, at St. Joseph’s Hospital. During the final stages of her life, she was surrounded by family members who shared support and love through a difficult time, in particular, her brother- in-law Paul Osier and his wife Betty. Audell was predeceased by her parents, Harold, Sadie, siblings Gwen Anderson (Don), Joe Schimmel (Sophie) and Gail Osier (Paul) and nephew Joe Anderson. Audell was the Director of Culture and Recreation for the city of Hamilton for many years, at a time when women rarely achieved such a position, until her retirement. She is survived by her sister Linda (Michael) of Fergus. She will be missed by nieces and nephews Kathleen Payne, Michael Osier, Michelle Osier, Matthew and Bob Reidy and their children, all of whom will miss her dearly. Audell was a faithful member of Our Lady of the Assumption Parish. A Funeral Mass will be celebrated at Our Lady of Assumption Parish 63 Highway 20 East, on Wednesday, April 24, 2019, at 12 p.m. followed by the cemetery. A short visitation will occur at 11:30 a.m. prior at Audell’s Funeral Mass at Our Lady of Assumption Parish.
