In her spare time she enjoyed gardening, cooking, crafting, and spending time with family, friends, and her dog Ella Grace. Audrey was very social and loved meeting new people and building friendships. She was a former member of the St. Augusta Legion Auxiliary and was dedicated to helping veterans. She was a wonderful historian who had a fascination with researching and documenting her family’s ancestry.
