Truro Daily News - - COLCHESTER COUNTY -

Audas, Elizabeth (Beth), Truro, passed away Thurs­day, May 2, 2019 in the Colch­ester East Hants Health Cen­tre, Truro, after a lengthy ill­ness. Born in Truro, NS March 27, 1945, she was a daugh­ter of the late Eileen (Field­ing) Richards and the late Wil­fred Richards. Fam­ily meant the world to Beth. Grow­ing up, Beth shared a spe­cial bond with her mother Eileen and sis­ter Sharon. Her mother adored the two girls and they all had fond mem­o­ries work­ing at the Sugar Bowl on Inglis Street when the girls were in high school. After grad­u­at­ing at age 16 from Colch­ester County Acad­emy, Beth re­ceived her Di­ploma from Suc­cess Busi­ness Col­lege and started her ca­reer at the Royal Bank of Canada in Truro. The fam­ily moved to New Glas­gow and Beth en­joyed a lengthy ca­reer at Tren­ton Works, ini­tially as an ad­min­is­tra­tive as­sis­tant to sev­eral man­agers and later as the ex­ec­u­tive as­sis­tant to the CEO. Beth also vol­un­teered her time with the Can­cer So­ci­ety, Kids Helpline and the Trin­ity United Church in New Glas­gow, teaching Sun­day school when her kids were young. Beth had a nat­u­ral flair when it came to cook­ing, en­ter­tain­ing, dec­o­rat­ing and gar­den­ing, spend­ing many hours en­joy­ing her gar­dens. She had a won­der­ful flair for style and was al­ways show­ing off her lat­est ‘ find’ from Frenchie’s or a con­sign­ment shop. Beth also en­joyed cross coun­try ski­ing and spent many week­ends ski­ing at Tren­ton Park or the Aber­crom­bie Golf course. She loved na­ture and had a spe­cial place in her heart for the el­derly and chil­dren. An­i­mals were very dear to her and she en­joyed spend­ing time with Pa­triska, Jenny and Abby. Her chil­dren will cher­ish many won­der­ful and happy times grow­ing up; sum­mers at the beach, win­ter week­ends ski­ing and our an­nual May long week­end trek to PEI. She is sur­vived by her lov­ing chil­dren, son Sean (Lorelei) Audas, Bed­ford; daugh­ter Jennifer Audas, Halifax; grand­chil­dren Matthew and Ash­ley Audas, Bed­ford; cher­ished sis­ter Sharon (Lloyd) Smith, Kelvin Grove PEI and their daugh­ters Shan­non, Kirsh and Vanessa all of PEI; her first hus­band Charles (Bud) Audas. She was pre­de­ceased by her sec­ond hus­band, Pierre Poidevin. Ar­range­ments have been en­trusted to Mat­tatall-varner Fu­neral Home, 55 Young Street, Truro. As per Beth’s wishes there will not be a vis­i­ta­tion or fu­neral and only a small cel­e­bra­tion of life for fam­ily and friends will oc­cur. If so de­sired, do­na­tions in Beth’s mem­ory to the Colch­ester SPCA or a char­ity of choice are wel­comed. Sean, Jennifer and fam­ily would like to add a spe­cial Thank You to Mom’s lov­ing and life­long friend Judy Fraser. She has been an an­gel for Mom and tremen­dous sup­port to us all. Pri­vate mes­sages of con­do­lence may be sent to the fam­ily by view­ing Beth’s obit­u­ary on-line and se­lect­ing “Send A Con­do­lence” at: www.mat­tatal­l­varn­
