After retiring as a legal secretary she and Alex travelled extensively throughout the world. Also she was a gifted writer. Thank you so much to the staff on the Ellison ward of Sun Pointe who were so wonderful to Audrey. Special thanks also to Elsie Robertson who cared so lovingly for Audrey for the past 10 years.
