Obituary for Audrey E. Carlson

Audrey E. Carlson, 91, passed away from natural causes on November 16, 2016 at the Frederic Nursing and Rehabilitation Center. Audrey was born May 14, 1925 in Centuria, Wisconsin to Bert and Martha Fox.

Audrey graduated from St. Croix Falls High School in 1943. Audrey was an outstanding letter writer. She regularly wrote letters to servicemen during World War Two. She married Sherwin Carlson on September 4, 1948 and they had two sons, David and Leland. She worked many years at Bremer Bank helping people set up retirement accounts and other investments. After retiring from the bank, she worked for Studio Works making stained glass. She was very active in St. Luke's United Methodist Church in Frederic, Wisconsin. Audrey was well known for the baby sweaters that she enjoyed knitting and they became very popular. Audrey also enjoyed tasting and sharing her homemade fruit wines over conversations with friends and neighbors. She was an avid bird watcher and particularly enjoyed watching cardinals and the swans on Young Lake. Audrey spent many hours gardening and she was very fond of the beautiful roses that resulted from her gardening efforts.

When Audrey could no longer stay at home by herself, she entered the Frederic Nursing and Rehabilitation Center where she charmed the staff with her sense of humor and outgoing personality. She maintained her cheerful demeanor and brightened everyone's lives that she met.

Audrey is preceded in death by her mother and father; 4 brothers; her son, David Carlson (2006); and her husband, Sherwin Carlson (2009).

She is survived by her son, Leland Carlson; brother, Gordon Fox; daughter-in-law, Cindy Carlson; granddaughters, Cassandra and Jennifer; and 5 great-grandchildren.

A special thanks to the Frederic Nursing and Rehabilation Center and to Paula Johnson for the loving care they provided to Audrey. Audrey will be greatly missed by her church family, nieces and nephews, and many other friends. She will also be missed by Pam Freese with whom she shared a long, loyal and loving friendship.
