To the extended Mugford and Bond Families, we extend our deep and sincere condolences on the loss of a cherished family member. Audrey was without doubt a character, who took a keen interest in her family and her wide range of friends. She was not a passive person, but one who engaged you because she was genuinely interested in you and what you were doing. She loved life and lived it to its fullest. She has earned her peace and is now in the house of her Maker. She will be missed!
You are in our hearts and prayers, sincerely, Brent and Sheila MacDonald.

You all have been so blessed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Heaven has another angel. She has surely earned her wings.

I have fond memories of being at the Mugford home as an adolescent. Mrs. Mugford was always full of energy and was never afraid to give direction and advice to Allan, Carson and myself as we were “heading out.” She had the wisdom of bringing up 10 kids and knew all the tricks. She was a very kind, compassionate, and caring person who had the wisdom of faith on her side. As much as I am saddened to hear of her passing, she has lived an incredible life and merits her everlasting reward. She is certainly bringing great energy and a wonderful sense of humour with her. I appreciate her influence on my life.
