  1. To Jim and the Murray family: My dear friend, Audrey, has gone home to meet Jesus face to face! Alleluia! I was blessed to know her for many years through our parish life. What a wonderful, gracious, woman of faith. She was a model for many of us women, showing love of family and how to care for those dear to us. Well done good and faithful servant!

  2. CandleImageAudrey was a gentle, loving soul. She was a joy to play with at the bridge table. Sadly, duplicate bridge in Pueblo has nearly disappeared.
    She gave me excellent recommendations for a surgeon and a dentist.

  3. CandleImageMy memories of Audrey were how kind, wonderful and funny she was. My deeply sincere condolences to the Murray family.

    Jane Gebhardt and the rest of the Don Gebhardt Family.

  4. A life well lived is a family gathering together to rejoice in her going home. While we stand here, with sorrow and alone, on the otherside is Jesus, whom she believed in devoutly and those who have gone before, all calling out, here she comes! My deepest sympathies to you all.
