Audrey Sunburn



I received this email over the weekend:


"Hi, Those of you who already know, I am sorry for repeating the information. My name is Paula, I'm Audrey's daughter. I'm emailing you all to let you know, my mom passed away.
She passed on Friday May 2nd. They believe she had a heart attack, we had no idea this was coming. She wasn't ill. She was just having a terrible back ache. I know that she has many friends from her beading community, and she cared for you all very much. She had a gift, and enjoyed beading, knitting, and getting together with her beading buddy's. Please know that she spoke of you with affection. Thank you for being a friend to my mom, she was fortunate to have found soul mates in crafting."


I've been an on-line friend of Audrey's for years - we first connected on the forum "Bead Talk" We have met for the last several years at the Bead and Button show in Milwaukee. Above are several pictures from our meetings over the years (the third picture was taken by Bev Herman).
I will miss her.

I'll miss her too. I kind of took it for granted she'd always be around. Thanks for the photographs, and my condolences to her family and dear friends.

Im sorry to hear of Audrey's passing. What a shock to her family and freinds. She was too young...

I knew Audrey way back in the 60's. I was friends with her sister Sarah. Her father was the minister of my childhood church in Fort Atkinson.

My condolences to her family and friends. Jackie

I just found out today about Audrey Sunburn's passing. I first her in Kirtland, Ohio when her father came to our church in the last 1960's. I know that she was a very caring person, who took care of both of her parents when they needed her. Condolences to her family and friends.
