A graveside service will be held on Saturday, April 13, 2019 at 4:00 p.m. at Oak Grove Cemetery with Rev. Kerney Wilson officiating.
The family wishes to extend a special thank you to Audrey’s music friends, her friends at the McDowell County Senior Center and neighbors for their support during her illness.
