Buckingham,

Audrey Jean

We Shall Not See The Like Of Her Again

(With deference to Shakespeare)

​With sadness we announce the passing of Audrey Jean Buckingham, known to many as AB.  Audrey was born in London, England on September 5, 1924 and she died in Almonte, Ontario on June 5, 2017.  She was predeceased by her husband Norman Buckingham (darling Bucky) and her second child, Judith.  Audrey leaves behind her son Gordon Buckingham (Stephanie) and her daughter Phillippa Doherty (Daniel), her grandchildren Adrienne and Phillip Buckingham, and Joshua and Claire Doherty.  She also leaves her 6 great grandchildren Thomas, Gemma, Gracie, and Valerie Tagg, and Harriet and Iris Doherty-Moore.

A Celebration of her Life will be held at C.R. Gamble Funeral Home and Chapel, 127 Church St., Almonte, Ontario, on Friday, June 9, 2017 at 11am, with visiting the hour prior.  Tea and refreshments will be served following the service.  In lieu of flowers we ask that you make a donation to the SPCA, if you are so inclined.

The family wishes to extend our deepest gratitude to all the members of “Team Audrey”: Dr. Rossi, Dr. McKillop, the wonderful staff at the Almonte General Hospital, the remarkable home support team from Bayshore Healthcare, Julie and Ron McGrath, Cathy Huffman, Susan Gibson, Rob Lockwood and Audrey’s many friends, a list too long to document here.  Audrey had a more than 4 decade association with the Ottawa Valley Hunt Club and we acknowledge our appreciation of that connection as well.  We feel blessed, privileged and deeply moved by all the support, caring and acts of kindness so many have offered to our mother in the past few years.
