Obituary of Audrey Edith Gordy

Audrey Edith Thomas Gordy was born in Bradford, Florida on December 1, 1947 to the late Euford Thomas and Thelma Wiley Thomas. She was one of seven siblings born to this union. On April 22, 1967, Audrey was married to the love of her life, Curtis L. Gordy. They shared forty-five years together. Audrey and Curtis left Florida and moved to North Carolina living there for several years. Then nine years ago they fell in love with a small town called Red Boiling Springs and an old historical two story house; that they couldn't resist. Audrey took great pride in working on the house and decorating it during the Holiday seasons. Family and home meant more to Audrey than anything else. Audrey revolved her life around her husband and seven children. Corky, their talking bird was a big part of the family also. They got him from a rescue center eighteen years ago. Nothing excited Audrey more than planning a trip with her family; she was like a kid in a candy store. She was full of fun and wore a smile on her face. Like most women, Audrey liked to spend the day shopping for pretty things. She enjoyed making flower arrangements and crocheting. Audrey liked to play games on television and watch old movies. Besides her parents; son, David Sellers, and sister, Thelma Crews also preceded Audrey in death. On Thursday, October 18, 2012 Audrey passed away. She will be greatly missed by her family and many friends. There was a Memorial Service conducted Monday at 1 pm from the Chapel of Alexander Funeral Home with Elder J.E. Shoulders officiating.
