"Your Mother is always with you. She's the whisper of the leaves as you walk down the street. She's the smell of certain foods you remember, flowers you pick, the fragrance of life itself. She's the cool hand on your brow when you're not feeling well. She's your breath in the air on a cold winter's day. She is the sound of the rain that lulls you to sleep, the colors of a rainbow, she is Christmas morning. Your Mother lives inside your laughter. She's the place you came from, your first home, and she's the map you follow with every step you take. She's your first love, your first friend, even your first enemy, but nothing on earth can separate you, not time, not space… not even death." -Unknown
“Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.”
What a life she had... and what a life she gave all of us!
Audrey has chosen to be cremated. She said she didn’t need or want a service or memorial...she just wanted a party. We honored her request with a family gathering and we told our favorite Audrey stories and memories.

Grandchildren: Chris (Cindy) Whitney and Jeff (Sally) Whitney all of the Seattle WA area. Kay (Don) Geist of Springfield MO, John (Danae) Schindele of Nixa MO, Michael Schindele of Siesta Key FL. Great Grandchildren: Caleb Geist and Jacob (Amanda) Geist and her son Miles and a great great granddaughter due in one month; Carson and Carli Colvin of Nixa MO; Ethan and Shelby Schindele of St. Augustine FL.
