A life-long resident of Erie, she graduated from Academy High School and was employed at Lake Shore Pattern Works.  She was a member of Immanuel Baptist Church, a member of the Ladies Missionary Society, and sang in the choir for many years. 

She was a loving wife and mother who enjoyed taking care of her home, playing the piano, shopping, and watching Lawrence Welk.  Mom loved going to classic car shows with her two sons when they displayed their cars; never refusing a ride! The many family gatherings were very important to Audrey, she will be greatly missed.

To them all, she was their beloved “Nanny”.
