I will treasure all of my long conversations with her. Please know she will be sorely missed by all of those who she touched. May your beautiful soul rest in peace always. <3 Love you, Tara

I was so sorry to hear of your mom‘s passing. I have wonderful memories of time spent with all of you. Audrey was such a special lady and was so much fun. One of the many things that made her special but she always told you what she thought whether you liked it or not. She was a wonderful wife mother and friend. I loved your mom very much, I always thought of your parents as my second Mom and Dad.
I will miss our time together When Audrey would come each summer to Michigan and stay with Wendy and Dwight.
Thanking of you all and love you so much.

I visited Audrey's Englewood house many years ago. She was wallpapering the kitchen with real leaves! It was beautiful but as she was explaining the intricate process I realized I would never copy her talent. Everytime I re-do a piece of furniture, I think of her redoing Beth's sofa, which was quite a feat. I was always glad when I heard she would be up for holidays.

As one of the aunts of the Karbon family, Audrey was well known to our family. As many have stated due to the CV-19 that kept us from one another for far too long, we have missed her and others of her family over the years. She will be forever remembered for her humor and the great mother she was with her kids and grandkids. She was also a mother to all of her nieces and nephews as well. Family get togethers will keep her in our hearts as if she was still with us. She will be missed by her family that were closest to her and others that were part of her family. Enjoy those that have gone on before you. We'll keep you in mind in future reunions. God Bless you and those of your family!

Sorry to hear this. Aud can be united with Tom and they will be able to do together once more what they were known for. Condolences to the kids & grandkids. Yes, she will be missed at the family functions. Aud always had a chuckle just waiting to come forth and seemed to take
things well in stride.

Audrey will be very missed by the Boggemes family. She was a wonderful woman who took time to talk to and help others. Family gatherings will never be the same. It is also very sad that we had not seen her in a long while because of the pandemic. Our prayers and love are with her and the whole Shinske family.
