Wife, mother, civil servant, scuba diver. Born January 14, 1921, in Halifax. Died December 7, 2002, in Toronto, of a stroke, aged Audrey ZIMMERMAN (née TOBIN) had God on her side. By all accounts, it was a good deal for both of them. Audrey got the impenetrable protection of her faith. God got a follower of infinite optimism and deepest commitment.
She was often bothered by the sex and violence in movies and on television -- so much so that I never knew her to even watch a newscast. Audrey's oldest and dearest friend, retired University of Toronto professor Margaret DOOLAN, says she'd take special care when picking movies to attend with Audrey. It was just part of the protective filter that people felt they needed to build around her.
Audrey was the second youngest in a family of seven children and, from her earliest days, she radiated an innocence that made people want to help and protect her. She rarely needed the assistance but, because it seemed to make others happy, she accepted it with grace and genuine appreciation. Throughout her life, she maintained an innocent enthusiasm that ran to the naive. How much of that naiveté was real and how much she put on for her own convenience, we never figured out. In some 70 years of Friendship, Marg DOOLAN can only recall once when Audrey seemed mad at someone and then because that person had been rude to her husband.
Audrey left Halifax in the late 1950s. She was working in the insurance industry and her boss was transferred to Toronto. He asked her to come along. Shortly after arriving in Toronto, Audrey met an active and outgoing man. Matthew ZIMMERMAN was a widower with three children. Audrey and Matt were married in the spring of 1959. The marriage sent a wave of concern through her family. How would little Audrey manage with a new husband and the instant pressure of three kids ranging in age from 3 to 15? Very well, as it turned out, and in January, 1960, Audrey and Matt added a new son, David.
The pregnancy was troubling. Audrey was diagnosed with severe diabetes in her 20s and pregnancy, especially at that time and at her age (then 39) was considered very risky; something that Audrey would have never even considered.
Diabetes dogged Audrey throughout her adult life and there were many scary incidents of adverse insulin reactions. More than once, some member of the family would arrive home to find Audrey unconscious on the floor, with no idea how long she'd been there the ambulance would be called and revival procedures started. At the end of it all, Audrey's standard response was "It's okay. I'm fine."
There were emotional challenges too. Audrey outlived all but one of her siblings. In 1972, her husband, Matthew, died of cancer. A few years later, she lost a granddaughter to leukemia and, in 1997, her step-daughter, Darlene, also died.
Audrey was small but strong. She never let her diabetes or her age interfere with her ambitions. After Matt died, she went back to work and was with the Ontario Ministry of Health until she retired in the late 1980s. Audrey was an avid tennis player and downhill skier. At the age of 60, she took up scuba diving. That led to another close call. Once, while diving at Tobermory, Ontario, Audrey ran out of air. She was able to signal her diving buddy but he was so much larger than she was, she couldn't share his regulator. Fortunately, their emergency ascent worked and Audrey continued to dive for several more years. About the only ambition she didn't fulfill was skydiving.
Audrey placed her life in God's hands and that was all the protection she needed. Her son, David, often said his mother didn't have a guardian angel, she had a team of them. And they took their job very seriously.
Kent is a friend of Audrey's son, David.
