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.

    I am going to miss Audrey so much. I enjoyed having many a cups of coffee and cookies with her and the last few times at Peterson Estate we had those yummy Schwans ice-cream bars. I was so glad that I stopped up in the hospital to see her on Sunday afternoon. I never would have guessed that it would be the last time to visit with her here on earth. I will be praying for you, the family, as I know that she will be greatly miss.

    Audrey was one of the nicest persons I have ever known. It was Ronnie’s and my pleasure to get to know her better during the time we spent at Peterson Estates. Ron and she loved to talk “farming,” and the good ol’ days. I thought she was so kind and sweet to everyone, and we, too, had some great conversations. Audrey enriched the lives of all who had the privilege of knowing her. The world was a better place because of the life of Audrey. Sincerely, with love and prayers for all of her family, Eunie, Clive, IA

    So thankful for memories of Audrey as a Sunday School teacher in my growing up years at Immanuel Baptist Church, and her faithful attendance in the years since. I gained an appreciation for her strength of faith in the loss of Lloyd and as her health diminished. Praising the Lord that her faith is now complete as she lives forever with Jesus. She was a faithful friend to and prayer warrior for my mother in her last years with leukemia. I will miss seeing Audrey’s sweet and welcoming smile when we visit IBC the next time. I am praying for God’s peace and comfort to be with each of the family as you both grieve for her earthly loss, but rejoice in her eternal gain.

    What a neat lady, and good friend Audrey was. Always liked to visit. The last time I talked to her, we were on for almost an hour. That was before she went to the Good Sam. home. Roger, and Anton always enjoyed eating at her house when they were cutting silage. Audrey was a good cook. God bless her memory. Ea. Christmas we give memorials to the Tammy E Benson Scholarship @WWG school, and will remember our friend at that time. R & C.
