Audrey was a homemaker and loving mother to her family of five children. Around 1995, Audrey earned her CNA license and chose to help other people. She was dedicated and had only two clients that she cared for; Catherine and Sam Dardano. They became "part of the family" and passed before her. Catherine used to say that Audrey has to be an ANGEL because of the way that she cared for her.

She is survived by her four children; Guy, John, Judy and Joe; brothers-in-law, Bob of Colorado Springs and Eddie of Maine; sisters-in-law; Mary, Carol, Joye of Colorado and Berniece of Arizona; 14 grandchildren and 19 great grandchildren.
