On the evening of July 2, 2012, Audrey finished her race, crossing the line into the waiting arms of her precious Savior, Jesus. Audrey was born in Colton, CA. and was a 1950 graduate of Riverside HS. She attended the University of Idaho where she met William E. Boardman. They married on September 23, 1954 at Pensacola, FL. After several years in the Navy, they settled in the Seattle area where they raised nine children as well as fostered several special needs children. They also welcomed a number of foreign exchange students and refugees into their home. Audrey was an exceptional lady, always on the go, enjoying family, friends and any new friends that came to their home.
Audrey loved her Lord and relied on Him in all things. She abides with Him now, along with her dear daughter LeaAnn, her brother Bud and her parents. Her loved ones will miss her, but rejoice in her "Graduation”. Audrey is survived by her husband Bill and her children and their spouses: Brad (Carrie), Kimberly (Bob), Marc (Marsha), Lisa (Christoph), Heather (Greg), Matthew (Lizbeth), Bethany (Troy) and Susan. She is also survived by her sister Diana, 21 grandchildren, 15 great-grandchildren and 4 great-great-grandchildren.
