She started her years of employment at the age of 15. She began working at Hanes Knitting followed by Ithaca Industries and retired from Wilkes Glove.

Aunt Audrey was a devoted mother and wife. Her greatest loves were her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, and her most beloved son, Joey. She always would say, “There is my sweet Joey”. Where you saw one, you saw the other. Audrey loved spending time with her family. She was a caregiver to many all of her life. She loved to reminiscence about old times, and had the gift of storytelling like her father and brothers. Her laugh was infectious. Her favorite activities were gardening, cooking, canning, reading, studying the Bible and spending time with family and friends. Christmas was her favorite time of year. She loved flowers and always looked forward to the day she would meet Jesus in person. We rest assured that today she is walking with Jesus in the beauty of Heaven’s glory.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by one sister, Karen Nash.
