May the memory of Audrey be with us forever.
  • 77 years old
  • Born on March 22, 1934 in Bolton, Mississippi, United States.
  • Passed away on December 8, 2011 in Salem, Oregon, United States.

Welcome to Audrey's Memorial Web Site.

With so many family members living in different states and in other countries, I thought it fitting to create this on-line memorial for mother.  I pray that this will give everyone a chance to share their memories, photos, and life stories with others who love Audrey.

Feel free to invite family and friends to this site, so they can share their memories. You can add your pictues, stories, or just leave a simple tribute. In doing this, we build better memories.

May the Lord richly bless all who visit this site and share in His love.

Douglas Sloan

A Memorial Service was held Saturday, Jan 7th 2012, 1PM at Capital Baptist Church in Salem, Oregon.  This was a small gathering of family and friends.

Mother's eulogy is now posted on the "Her Life" page of this site.

Sharon Sloan always talked about what a great Mother Audrey was and I knew her as being Sharon's mother. She was always open to us teenagers hanging around her house, eating food and watching t.v. and allowing us to be teenagers! She is missed by many. Love to the family! Nina

Year four - They say time heals all wounds. While this is true, the scars remain. It still hurts to know mom is gone. I miss her love and kindness more than ever. If more people were like her, the world would truly be a better place. With love always, Doug <><

It's been three years, and I miss mom more than ever! I thought this was supposed to get easier. Unfortunately, her absence still hurts.

I miss calling and talking to you about the everyday instances and you living life vicariously through me. Plainly put, I miss you more than you will ever know, today, and every day, until we meet again.

I never heard that from my own biological mom. I shared secrets, heartbreaks, and everything else with you. And our trips to Frey’s grocery store, took about four hours or more as we would discuss life, and etc., and only you and I know about those conversations. I miss your advice, whether relative or not, you always had an opinion, and it was usually solid. With that said, I miss c

with my homework. I had to write a paper and needless to say, we collaboratively earned an undeserved grade! Since then, I was able to share my improved writing skills with you and hoped that you were proud, and met your approval. You had said to me “Hey, I remember when I knew more than you.” And at another time, you said that you were proud of me and no matter how hard I tried;

GM I can’t thank you enough for all you’ve done for me….you loved me as your own blood, shared and protected me from harm…you were my grandma and mom put into one, and I proudly referred to you as such. I remember when I first came to stay with you; it was after high school. It was you, me and grandpa and we had a ball. After awhile, I went to college and you were so excited to help me wi

laugh, to love, to work, to play.
 Tasks left undone must stay that way,
 I've found that peace at the end of the day. If my parting has left a void,
 Then fill it with remembered joy.
 A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss, 
Ah, yes, these things too I will miss. Be not burdened with times of sorrow,
 I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
 My Life's been full, I savored much,
Good friends, good tim

Don't grieve for me, for now I'm free, 
I'm following the path God laid for me.
 I took his hand when I heard his call, I turned my back and left it all. I could not stay another day,
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
 Tasks left undone must stay that way,
 I've found that peace at the end of the day. If my parting has left a void,
 Then fill it with remembered joy.
 A friendship shared, a lau

This is to the best mom a son could ever ask for! You taught me the true meaning of love and compassion and how to share that with others. I am eternally grateful for having you as my mother. I will miss you every day of my life. Your son, Douglas.

Audrey was a wonderful person, mother and friend to many of us that knew Sharon in our early teen years. My love goes to you all that are missing her.
