"The Story of My Life"

Parte de Audrey Smedley L'Heureux fonds

"The Story of My Life" is a DVD that was made for Audrey Ruth Smedley L'Heureux's 80th birthday. The video starts with Audrey's parents, Marion Lucy Auld Spencer Graham (mother) and (father) Bert Spencer. The beginning of the video detailed pre-war life in Vanderhoof and the struggles that Audrey's parents had while raising their three children Audrey, Pat, and Jim Spencer. Audrey later goes on to marry Jack Smedley and moves to the Smedley farm for a short time; the Smedley farm is sold in 1957 and later becomes the Vanderhoof Products & Timber Ltd. headquarters. Before leaving the farm, Jack and Audrey had three children together: Albert Smedley, Georgina Becker, and Teddy Smedley. Jack and Audrey divorced on August 26, 1969. Audrey describes her divorce as a freeing experience that allowed her to start her journey in journalism. For a brief time Audrey owned the Nechako Chronicle but sold it in 1971. After a short stint as a photojournalist at the Langley Advance, Audrey became an editor of the Interior News for a year then moved to the Ingot (Alcan) in Kitimat to become their editor. Audrey's industry experience allowed her to expand her field of research leading her to move to Smithers and Prince George. Audrey and Edmond Joseph L'Heureux married in August 12, 1971. Edmond and Audrey welcomed in seven grandchildren. Edmond L'Heureux died in 2001. The video ends with the awards and accomplishments given to Audrey L'Heureux, including her 1998 Community Booster of the Year award from the Vanderhoof Chamber of Commerce and her 1997 appointment to the Seniors Advisory Council of British Columbia.
