Her family loved the special attention she gave to Holidays by making crafts / decorations to celebrate them, the Afghans she knitted for the grand kids, and the ladies all looked forward to the wash cloths she would knit as Christmas presents every year. Audrey initiated many a game of Yahtzee or checkers and there were some very competitive matches of croquet that happened on many a summer afternoon.
