Avis R. Reid
Avis loved the simple things of life, the laughter of her family, a full garden and gospel music. Her heart and home were always open with a fridge and freezer full of your favourite treats. She loved to travel and enjoyed destinations near and far. She lived her faith daily, she didn't always have a lot to say but she knew how to hug the hurt right out of your heart. She loved and is loved, she will be greatly missed by all who knew her. The family extends their heartfelt gratitude to the staff of Riverview Manor for their gracious loving care and compassion shown to our mother during her time there.
Avis is survived by her loving husband of 66 years, Doug; 8 children, Rosalie Milheron (Robert), Lillian Barton (Wes), Allison Reid (Sue), Evelyn Rossitor, Harold Reid (Cheryl), Keith Reid (Roxanne), Mary Cassie (Terry) and Kimberly Prosser (Raymond); 17 grandchildren; 7 great grandchildren; 8 siblings, Norma York, Charlene Watson (Alton), Floyd McAffee (Lois), Jack McAffee (Joy), Judy Davenport (Gary), Alan McAffee (Beverly), Carmen McAffee (Mary) and Oral McAffee (Susan) as well as many nieces, nephews and extended family.
