Audrey moved to Ventura in 1979 from Erie Pennsylvania when she married her late first husband's brother, Lou Fromknecht. It was a blissful marriage. She worked for GE in Pennsylvania and then for a brief time doing clerical work for the County of Ventura. Audrey had many good friends being an outgoing, friendly, warm kind and generous person and she was loved by all who knew her. She had a wonderful sense of humor which endeared her to her friends and helped her get through the many trials of life she endured. She took daily walks to Camino Real park with her beloved dog, Casey and she loved to bowl which she did once a week for years with her two bowling friends. She was a devout Catholic and had many friends at the Our Lady of Assumption Church in Ventura California. She was an active, vital woman until her illness in early November 2017. She will be missed by everyone particularly those special friends and her dog Casey.
