Audrey Jane (Lintner) Spielman was born in Des Moines River Township on August 20, 1923, to Albert and Mildred (Flor) Lintner. Audrey grew up in the Des Moines River area and attended school at District 108 and Westbrook High School. On December 30, 1942, Audrey was united in marriage to Lloyd Spielman. Lloyd and Audrey farmed the home place from 1947 until they retired in 2000. After Lloyd passed away in 2005, Audrey stayed on the farm until 2010 when she moved to Peterson Estates. She was a devoted and loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Audrey accepted the Lord as her Savior believing that “For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God.” She was an active member of Immanuel Baptist Church where she taught Sunday School for several years and served as deaconess. She was a faithful prayer warrior. Audrey enjoyed reading, gardening, and visiting with family and friends. She always had a pot of coffee ready and a cookie drawer full of goodies.
