Beloved wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and friend, Audrey Marie Young passed away suddenly on November 18, 2011, with her husband, Joe, at her side.
Audrey was born April 12, 1937, in Vancouver, Wash., to Ruben and Lulu Green. She graduated from Vancouver High School in 1955.
Audrey was passionate and proud of her children and loved her grandchildren deeply. She always put the needs of her family above her own. She was a very loving and compassionate mother who inspired and encouraged her children to be the successful and grateful people they have each become.
The thing she loved and looked forward to most in life was attending her grandchildren's school activities. She loved shopping and preparing special meals for friends and family. She also loved puzzles, gardening and caring for her very special pet, Rocky.
