Audrey loved to craft and give to the children in the community. She was actively involved in water aerobics and looked forward to them. She loved to camp and travel. She enjoyed taking trips on the golfcart around the park visiting people and looking for the alligators. She adored all of her children and grandchildren, great grandchildren and great-great grandson and was just thrilled when she would get pictures of them. When not doing these activities, you could always find her out in the lanai working on a new puzzle.
