I first met Audrey the day I married Carol and have loved her as a Aunt, sister and close friend ever since. Never have I ever heard a cross word come out of her mouth to me or any of my family. One of the most enjoyable trips was when Audrey, Jim, Carol and I took a two week vacation to Florida. It was two week of constant laughter to the point my sides would hurt. My family was not into religion, but between Gramma Johnson and Audrey I came to accept Jesus Christ as my Savior, it is the single greatest gift that anyone could receive and I will always honor their memories. I'm so sorry Carol and I will not be able to attend her funeral but my heart will with her family and all the Johnson family that i have learned to love all these years. May God Bless and keep all of you on this day of both sadness and joy.Wayne and Carol Sharp

I have many wonderful memories of Audrey. Mostly from childhood. Especially camping at Cokato lake, with the cousins and other family. The "Big Red Barn", campfires, playing cards in the camper and her "Panacakes". Slides shows that her and Jim had in the basement in Mound. Family Reunions with Audrey rounding up all us kids for family pictures. I loved her cooking, especially her famous Goulash. These memories and so many more will be with me forever. She was more than Aunt, she was like a Grandma to me, and I will miss her dearly. God bless her. Darin Johnson

I'm writing to send my regards to Audrey's family, especially Beverly, Steven, Shirley, Brad, Diane, and Carol. You all were so fortunate to have been such a big part part of Audrey's lifea"and for her to have been a big part of yours. I cherished the little and few times that I shared with her, whether in visits or on the telephone. She was always a friend, interested in my family's lives. She was a wonderful aunt. And, boy, did she like to have fun! I'm grateful that she was a part of my life. With best wishes to all of you. - Dick

My mom I know everyone says their Mom is the best, but I do know she was. I thank God that I(Melinda & sister Shirley too) was able to be with her when she took her last breathe as we finished saying the Lord's prayer & What A Friend We Have In Jesus was playing. That just tops off all the memories as the best, thank you Jesus

I met Audrey 50 years ago and she was a friend, a mom and truly one of the nicest people I ever knew. When I got the call she died my first thought was she is where is wanted to be. There is no doubt Audrey is in heaven with Jim and all she loved. She will be dearly missed but her legacy of kindness and caring lives on forever.
