Audrey was a kind person, an excellent Mother and an example to us all in her sense of duty and commitment to others. 

It is with great sadness that we record the passing of Audrey. She was one of the kindest, most caring, loyal and utterly reliable people we have ever known. She was totally self-effacing, being happy to help and get on with work, but always in the background, doing her bit with charm and humour, but with no thought to herself.

She was one of the kindest most caring, loyal and utterly reliable people we have ever known 

In Orwell for the past twenty years she was, until comparatively recently, actively involved with the WI, the Horticultural Society, the Royal British Legion and the Church. Additionally she did voluntary work at Arthur Rank Hospice and raised money for them by selling fruit, vegetables and flowers on her stall by the garden gate.

Towards the end of her life, when movement became difficult, she was frequently seen in the street, determined to carry on walking as long as she could.

Audrey was a kind person, an excellent Mother and an example to us all in her sense of duty and commitment to others.
