Resident Spotlight – Audrey Williams

Audrey Williams was born in Brooklyn, N.Y. in 1921 to Jenny and David Meadow. She was one of three children, but unfortunately her sister and brother both passed away. Audrey went to elementary and high school in Brooklyn, and she graduated in 3 years instead of 4. After graduating, Audrey moved to Miami in 1953 and worked for the Miami Dade Public School Systems, as the treasurer for Southwest Miami High School. She worked there for 28 years, handling all the money that came in and out of the school, sock hops, the prom, football games, and all other activities and parties.
Audrey met her future husband Bob, when she had a flat tire. She went to get a new tire not knowing what to do, and a nice young man helped her. When her car was finished, he asked her if she would like to have coffee with him and she said yes. The rest is history and they were married within one year. Audrey has two daughters from a previous marriage and Bob had a son, now there were three. They had a boat and fished all over Florida. Their favorite fishing trip was when they went salmon fishing in Alaska. Audrey travelled to many exotic places all over the world, including Europe, the Orient, Israel, Egypt, Hawaii and Thailand. Thailand was her favorite place to visit. Audrey was a bowler and bowled for 20 years, with an average score of 200. Amazing! She also ran a game call Bunko for 18 years at the Senior Lift Center in Kendall. Audrey and Bob were married for 51 years, but unfortunately Bob passed away 7 years ago, after breaking a hip and complications with his heart. Audrey remained in her home until she decided she wanted to be closer to her daughter. She moved into the Imperial Club and is very happy here. She is active in many activities and she has made many friends. We are so happy to have you here with us Audrey!
