    Audrey and Jack were such a big part of our family when we lived in Lombard, helping the brothers with their paper routes and continuing to be friends thru the years. Rest in peace, Audrey, and I know God will be there for your loved ones. I will always remember the good times.♥️

    I knew Audrey and the Buchholz family many years ago when we were all members of Grace Lutheran Church in Glen Ellyn. We met once again at the Glenbard All Class Reunions in Laughlin, NV and I enjoyed visiting with her and catching up on all the memories from Glen Ellyn. My prayers to Jack.
