Audrey was born on March 23, 1931 to Higno and Ann Olson of St. Paul, MN. She was a kind, honest, family-oriented and caring person who will be deeply missed by her loved ones. Audrey cherished every moment with her family.

Audrey had many passions. As a campfire leader, she helped with many crafts and singing. She also loved to sew and knit. Audrey was a card shark with bridge being her favorite. She had a love for movies and to travel, whether it was flying somewhere or camping. Audrey had a heart of gold, loved everyone, and went out of her way to make new friends.

She is survived by her children, Mary (Michael) Keller, Rebecca Erickson, Stephen (Betty) Smothers, Jonathan (Gizelle) Smothers, Sarah (Jeffrey) Bradfield; 10 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren.
