Lord Beaverbrook #33 mourns the passing of Sister Aulay Sample.

Mrs. Wanda "Aulay" Sample of Penobsquis passed away at the Sussex Health Centre on February 8, 2018 at the age of 96. "Aulay" was born in Bearbrook, Nova Scotia on June 10, 1921, the daughter of the late Stanford and Mary (MacAskill) Fraser.
She will live on in the hearts of her children: Stanford Sample of Penobsquis, Susan Sample of Coles Island, Kenneth Sample of Irish Settlement, Michele Sample of Irish Settlement and Bonny Sample of Ontario; her sister, Fayne MacNeil of Ontario; her grandchildren: Chris, CJ, Marcie, Kyle, Benjamin, Samantha, Sarah, Candice, Samantha, Mitchell, Jennifer, Selena, Kristine and Danny; her great grandchildren: Alex, Annabelle, Abigail, Amanda, Aisha, Chance, Brian, Marcus, Tristan, Melanie, Isabelle, Julia, Danielle, Jacob, Cameron and Jewels; as well as several nieces and nephews.
Along with her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Benvie and her sisters: Nita Reim, Marion Fraser and Betty Campbell.
Aulay was a hardworking woman; working as the manager of Eaton's after the war. Later, she would meet and marry the love of her life, Benvie and spend her days raising five exceptional children and keeping her spare time busy working as the district distributor of the Telegraph Journal or her time spent with Royal Gardens - she was always busy. An active member of Kings Chapter #21 OES and later of Lord Beaverbrook Chapter #33 in Hampton, she was also a Sunday School Teacher with St. Paul's United Church for many years.
She had a passion for baseball and at one time probably knew all the players for the Toronto Blue Jays better than they knew themselves. She could even dictate their stats from memory. She had such a love for the sport that when Benvie coached the local minor league, Aulay even did stats for the team. Aulay loved to cook and was very handy with a set of needles, whether it was sewing clothing from scratch for her kids or teaching them how to knit backwards.
Arrangements were entrusted to the care of Wallace Funeral Home, Sussex NB from where the Eastern Star held a tribute on Feb 11th. A Celebration of Aulay's life was held the following morning.
The family has recommended that donations be made to the Shriner's Hospital.
