Mrs. Audrey Mary Boll August 16, 1920 - November 14, 2008 - With heavy hearts we announce the passing of Audrey Mary Boll on Friday, November 14th, 2008 at Veteran’s Village in Saskatoon, with her children by her side. Audrey was a sweet, gentle, kind soul, and she touched many hearts during the eighty-eight years she was here with us. Our loss is heaven’s gain. She was predeceased by her parents John & Beatrice Biggs and by her loving husband Phil Boll after 60 years of marriage in 2005. Audrey is survived by her children Judith (Ed) Nelson, Sharon (Grant) Robertson, Bonnie (Terry) Fernets, Marilyn (Randy) Boll and Ken Boll, her grandchildren Michael (Rae-Ann) Nelson, Lori (Scott) Wilton, Alana Nelson, Donna Nelson, Shannon (Brent) Paterson, Karl (Amy) Peters, Logan (Tatrina) Peters, Julie (Aaron) Sesula, Angela Guenther, Cory Fernets and seven great-grandchildren. Audrey was born on August 16th, 1920 in Bassano, Alberta. She was a fearless tomboy growing up, often climbing up the town elevator. Audrey loved to play baseball and wished she could wear blue jeans instead of dresses. When she finished school in Morse, SK she wanted to travel and joined the Canadian Air Force. Audrey was stationed in St. Thomas, Ontario, working as a telephone operator and met the love of her life, Phil Boll from Viceroy, SK, who was a corporal there, teaching aero-engine mechanics. They were the first couple allowed to marry on the air force base on March 24th, 1944 with Phil in uniform, and Audrey in a wedding gown. Shortly after, Phil and Audrey moved back to Saskatchewan and started raising their family. Phil taught Audrey how to bake bread and pies, because he came from a large family and had learned at a young age how to care for his siblings. She took on many new challenges in a positive way, and was a wonderful mother to her five children. Audrey’s passion was music and dancing. She was often surrounded by music and even when she became unable to dance, you would still see her keeping time to the music with her fingers or toes, with a twinkle in her eyes. Audrey’s children loved many things about their mother, but one of her qualities that really stood out was her love for people. She did not care about the colour of a person’s skin, how much money they had, or what they looked like. Audrey treated everyone with kindness and love. She will always be remembered for her beautiful smile, her positive outlook on life, and her belief that there is good in everyone. She prayed every day for all of her family. Audrey was an angel walking among us, and now she is the brightest star in our heaven. The Funeral Service to celebrate Audrey’s life will take place at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, November 18th, 2008 at Hillcrest Funeral Home, (east on 8th Street, turn right before railway crossing). Burial will take place at Hillcrest Memorial Gardens. The family wishes to thank the staff at Amy McClure, Veteran’s Village (Sherbrooke), Fay Sittler and Ed and Lynda Schneider for their loving care of our Mom in her latter years.
