Obituary for Audrey Kathryn Burns

Audrey Kathryn (nee Hettinger) Burns
Audrey Burns was called to heaven by the Lord on December 28th. Born in Aurora, Illinois to Gertrude and William Hettinger, she met and fell in love with Leonard Burns, a best friend of her big brother Bill’s. After Len returned from the war, they married and the family grew and moved many times before settling on 7 kids and Hartford, Wisconsin, where they lived on Grand Avenue for 40+ years.
Audrey was a warm, loving mother who always knew when one of her kids needed a hug. With all those children, she was on the run 24x7. Still, she found time to work the registers at Campbell’s, Esther’s and Kennelly’s, local downtown Hartford stores. She laughed heartily with her bridge ladies, inspired her cub-scout pack and led each and every one of her children through college, even though she never went herself. She found joy in hosting large family events with extended family reaching over 50 people at a time. These family reunions live on in the hearts of her family and are fond remembrances of the love and care she shared.
Audrey will be dearly missed by all who knew her. She will join her parents and her dear brother Bill (William) who are already with the Lord. She is survived by her former husband Leonard, her siblings Jean Ann and Lee and her children, Michael, Lawrence, Jeffrey, David, Susan, Jim and Laura, all of their spouses, as well as 16 grandchildren, three great-grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews and their children.
All of that laundry is finally done and put away. Thanks Mom.
