Audrey married James "Marty" Gallagher in 1953. And to that union, they had four children. They later divorced.
Audrey loved her family and extended family. She would do whatever she could to always help others. Her circle of friends was very wide. She was very social and loved to 'do coffee', talk, laugh and spend time with others. She enjoyed playing cards, music, word puzzles, Monday movie night with the Walters and reading her bible. She loved road trips to view the Fall leaves, visit friends, and an occasional mother/daughter get away. It brought her great joy chatting and spending time with her grandchildren.
She loved the Lord. She wanted everyone to know Him and have a personal relationship with Him. She was a prayer warrior. Always praying for her family and those in need. She loved her church family at Harvestime church. She thought the world of 'Father" Kim his wife, Jenny.
