AIKEN, Avril Victoria Louise (nee Springer)Aiken - 1933 - 2022
Died peacefully in her 90th year, with her family around her at the Oak Ridges Hospice in Port Perry, Ontario.
Avril was pre-deceased by her husband, Robert Aiken in 2017.
She was so dearly loved by her family: her children, Reed (Gail), Jeff (Susan) and Christina (Irving), her grandchildren, Brigid (Todd) and Ned (Jenni), and her great-grandchildren, Grady, Bennett, Marin and Jack.
Avril often told stories of an idyllic childhood in Deep Cove, British Columbia and though her heart was always there, she travelled east with her husband for a new adventure. Together with their children and grandchildren, they enjoyed many years at their cottage on the Severn River.
Avril had a fulfilling career as a bookkeeper/accountant and made many lasting friendships.
She will be terribly missed by all of us, but will live in our hearts forever.
We want to thank the staff of the Oak Ridges Hospice for their kind and compassionate care of our Mom in her last days.
Donations to the Oak Ridges Hospice, Port Perry, Ontario would be greatly appreciated by the family.
Memorial to follow in January 2023.
