We have been informed that one of the earlier Aurovilians and dear friend Auralee (Audrey McCormick) left her body in the early morning of Wednesday 25 May, in Montreal, Canada. She was 77, and had been treated for cancer.
Auralee came to Auroville for the first time in 1986, with her two sons, Michale (Shwetaketu) and John. After her keet house in Fertile had burned down, she went back to Canada to return with Shweta in 1996 when she moved into Vikas. During her years here, she worked at Pour Tous, and later as secretary to the Entry Service. Colleagues remember her as an alert, pleasant and friendly person to work with. She and Shwetaketu left Auroville around 2010 for the latter’s higher studies.
Auralee was a serious practitioner of Sri Aurobindo’s Yoga. We join her family’s and friends’ prayers for her soul’s peaceful journey ahead.
