She “loved” her time at Roger’s Cove. Her days were always full, chatting with staff and residents, playing UNO, Rummy Cube, knitting for family, staff, or a cause, building puzzles, or spending time on the phone staying in touch with friends and family.
A service in her memory will be held at Roger’s Cove in Huntsville . Please visit Audrey's site in the near future for service details.
