In 1996 & then 1998, Audrey was blessed with the birth of her sons, Bobby, Jr. & Zachary. She cherished her role as mother and embraced it with unconditional love. Her dedication was easily seen on the baseball fields, basketball courts, football fields, banquets, fundraisers and many more events for her children & in her community. After her diagnosis with ALS, she maintained her strong will & spirit to continue to live. She continued to work every day until the disease became too debilitating. She was blessed to have her family, extended family, friends, & colleagues around her for support & strength. Audrey was an inspiration to many, not just ALS but to anyone who may be afflicted with any disease. Her unwavering strength was with her until she went home to God.
