HAMPDEN and CALAIS - Audrey Jean Stevens, 41, went to Heaven on Thanksgiving morning at her home in Hampden with Elaine and her Mom at her side.
Audrey had beautiful eyes, thick auburn hair and an infectious laugh. She loved music, twinkling lights and the wind in her face. Some of her favorite foods were ketchup, sour cream, mashed potatoes and coffee syrup in her milk.
Audrey was born on July 16, 1979 to George and Kathleen (O’Brian) Stevens.
In passing, Audrey is reunited now with her maternal grandparents, Paul and Mary (Murphy) O’Brian; paternal grandparents, Neil and Annie (Callahan) Stevens; a special aunt, Greta Stevens; and a special foster mom, Andrea Sinco who cared for Audrey for 33 years.
Audrey leaves behind her parents; her siblings, Earl and Shauna; a special cousin, Annemarie (Robb) Wiley and family; 50 other cousins; 13 aunts and uncles; her special foster mom, Elaine Suzor who took care of Audrey for 38 years, her special foster friends, Paul, Shanna, and Rachel.
There are so many people to thank - the staff at Capri Street, Holden, Cohen, and Bangor High Schools, the Bouchea Center Staff, Mert Enterprises (Mary) for taking Rainbow House on as one of their homes, the Rainbow House staff where Audrey lived for 38 years, especially, Cathy, Brenda, Kathy, Sue, Whitney, Page and a special friend, John.
We wish to thank St. Joseph’s Hospital (Fourth floor Staff) and St. Joseph’s Hospice for the wonderful care that they provided to Audrey and to us and a special thank you to Dr. Pelligrinni for both her skill and her compassion.
Audrey would want to say: Remember me always as only knowing unconditional love, the rainbow of colors in all my adventures, and the wind in my face that brought me smiles and belly giggles.
Audrey, sweetheart, you will forever live deeply in our hearts. NOW RUN FREE!!!
