Audrey Menke of O’Fallon, MO, passed away at the age of 86 on Wednesday, July 29, 2020. She was preceded in death by her husband, John “Jack” R. Menke; her parents, Rudy and Freida Holba; and her sister, Gloria Rosati.
Audrey is survived by her children, Maryfran (Tim) Kiely, John "Rick" (Catherine) Menke, Mike (Pat) Menke, Steve (Debbie) Menke, Tim (Tammy) Menke, and Matt (Kathy) Menke; her eleven grandchildren; her sixteen great-grandchildren; her sister, Rosemary Jacobson; and her brother-in-law, Joe Rosati.
Audrey was an excellent seamstress who loved to grocery shop and enjoyed cooking delicious meals for her family. She was huge fan of the St. Louis Cardinals and also liked to watch soap operas on television – especially her favorite, The Young and the Restless. Audrey was passionate about many causes and was proud to give her support to the police, firefighters, wounded veterans, and animal wellbeing. She will be dearly missed by all who knew and loved her.
Audrey missed her dear husband Jack more than words can express and longed for the day when she could reunite with him in heaven.
