It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Audrey Jo-Anne McLeod, age 72, of Truro, formerly of Springhill, NS. Audrey passed away after a 2 year battle with Breast Cancer on Thursday December 23, 2021 at the Colchester Regional Hospital.
Born in Springhill, she was a daughter of the late John and Edna May (Ryan) Kavalak.
Audrey, much like her mother, loved with her whole heart and was a fierce supporter of her family. She spent the last decade of her mother's life looking after her in her home. She loved to bake and you could not enter her home without her offering and re-offering copious amounts of coffee and sweets. She loved to spend time with her grandchildren.
After several years of heartbreaking loss, the time came for her to join those she missed so much. Her parents, her brothers Norman, Charles and Tommy Kavalak, and her most recent loss, the loss that hit her the hardest and from which she never recovered, her son Sean Andrew McLeod. What a reunion that must have been.
Missing her the most here on Earth is her loving husband of 53 years Dale McLeod; sons Scott (Charline) and Chris (Susan); grandchildren Alex, Isabelle, Samantha, Paige and Amielia. She will also be missed by sister in law Jude Kavalak; special nieces, Marla and Stacy; cousins Joanne Griffon and Kathy Sorensen; best friend of over 45 years Brenda Angers.
Arrangements are under the care and direction of A H Brown Funeral Home, 5 McFarlane Street, Springhill, (902-597-2361). In keeping with her wishes, cremation has taken place. A graveside service beside her son in the Hillside Cemetery will take place at a later date.
Donations in Audrey's memory may be made to the Cancer Society, or the charity of your choice.
Audrey's family wishes to extend a heartfelt thank you to the doctors, nurses, and staff at the Colchester Regional Hospital, and to all of those who visited and showed her love during her illness.
