We knew Audrey through the dancing Senior group. She was a beautiful lady of great spirit and generosity. It was our great pleasure to know her over the last several years. We know that you will miss her very much but will take great comfort in the knowledge that she was loved by many. She was a strong and independent person. A lovely lady to know.

To all of Audrey’s Family: I remember going to the grocery after school for meat for that night’s dinner. Mom made the list. My family lived about five blocks from the store, so my sisters and I were there often. I had a nice visit with your Mother at Munchers. Great lady.
