Have a lot of very good memories spent with Audrey during bingo playing together and especially our bingo trips to Tama, Iowa. Met many times to go eat. She was a lovely lady. Will miss her a lot.

I was so lucky to have Audrey as my mother-in-law. She was always so kind and sweet to me. I wish I could come out to Illinois to be with her family but it's just now going to happen. I love you all and am praying for you support and comfort. We will all miss her

I have many memories of her at the legion working in the kitchen on Saturdays for bingo. It was a joy to be around her and the memories that came with it. Prayers to the families
