Auga was born in Lemmon, South Dakota and lived most of her life in Nakusp, British Columbia. She served with pride and service for years starting in New Denver with the Girl Guide movement and with the Pythian Sisters, the Royal Canadian Legion and the Eastern Star, Martha Chapter. She worked extremely hard all her life and was
dedicated to the Arrow Lakes Hospital for many years before retiring. Auga was known for her great love of helping others and in
return she received a bounty of love from her family and friends.
Much gratitude and love goes to the staff of Acacia Ty Mawr in Shawnigan Lake where Auga was blessed with exceptional care –
she was treated like the queen she was. There are not enough words that can express this gratitude.
