After a brief period at Strong Memorial Hospital, she was employed by St. John’s Home for over 35 years. She retired holding the position of nurse manager.
Audrey had an infectious giggle and a great sense of humor. She loved her little dog, Lucy and if you called Audrey, you often got the opportunity to talk to Lucy as well! She enjoyed lunching out regularly with nursing friends from St John’s.
Audrey was an amazing quilter and shared her passion with a fun group of quilting friends. She was a member of the Genesee Valley Quilt Club and participated in their shows held at RIT. Audrey was active in the local organization, FLACE, sewing lap robes for veterans. She and Dick were members of the American Legion in Henrietta as well. They participated in events such as sending veterans on honor flights to Washington D.C.. Audrey would present lap robes and Dick served as a veteran in the color guard.
