Audrey Lovine Silver


Audrey Lovine Silver
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Audrey Lovine Silver, age 101, on August 28, 2022 at Mahone Nursing Home.

Born in Blockhouse on November 30, 1920 she was the youngest and last surviving member of her immediate family.

She was predeceased by her parents Harold and Regina (Demone) Ernst; her husband, Everett; son, Vernon and granddaughter, Sarah Wentzell; sisters, Leila Joudrey, Jennie Joudrey, Frances Haugen, Emily Curll, and Geraldine Slauenwhite; brothers, Ellard, Walter, Stanley and two infant brothers.

She is survived by daughters, Faye (Dan) MacNeil; Marilyn (Gary) Wentzell, daughter-in-law, Carolyn Silver-Crouse (Sheldon); grandchildren, Kim (Allan) Larkin, Kevin Silver (Angela), Kelly Silver, Ian (Marianne) MacNeil, Michael MacNeil and Anna (Wentzell) Bellows; great-grandchildren Melissa, Trevor, Megan, Eric, Ben, Rory, Kenzie and Gabriel and many cousins, nieces and nephews.

Audrey was a devoted member of St. John’s Lutheran Church, Mahone Bay where she taught Sunday school for over 30 years. She was a gentle soul with a warm smile and she remained young at heart throughout her life. “Nannie Audrey” enjoyed going for Sunday drives, playing cards, swinging on her hammock, going to dances, summer trips to Faye’s in Ontario, Christmases at Carolyn’s, and attending the Big Ex with her grandchildren. She also loved music and enjoyed playing her organ and guitar; she was self-taught and played everything by ear.

Audrey lived at her home in Blockhouse, and in the last three years, Marilyn and Gary moved in to care for her. Audrey will forever be remembered for her love of family, love of sparkly things and jewelry, her painted nails, her positive outlook on life and her ability to see the beauty in all things. She lived a simple, happy life and will be greatly missed.

The funeral service will be held 11am, Friday September 2, 2022 at St. John’s Lutheran Church, 89 Edgewater St., Mahone Bay, Pastor Brooklynn Lane officiating. The family requests that mask's be worn. Burial to follow at Garden of Rest Cemetery, Blockhouse.
