In memory of
Audrey Ann Geyer April 11, 1936 - Sept. 11, 2020 Audrey had many talents but most of all she was a great mother to her three children and two step-children, and eleven grandchildren, as well as being a fantastic wife. She painted in Bauernmalerei, a folk art, and her pieces are cherished. She sculpted many serving dishes as well as a little man that matches a little woman that had been bought in Martinsville many years ago. Her acrylics are hanging in the homes of all of her children. Her friends called upon her decorating talent which led to Warm Accents. Her refinished furniture is in all the family homes. Audrey was a good athlete and enjoyed tennis. It was at a tennis party that she met her husband Bill. They had a small family ceremony and in the spring a large celebration in tents at their home in Scotch Plains, N.J. They played a lot of tennis, went camping , and enjoyed skiing. Their skiing took them from Maine to Colorado, Wyoming, New Mexico, Whistler in western Canada and Mont-Tremblant in eastern Canada, Kitzbuhel in Austria and Zermatt in Switzerland. They spent three weeks traveling to many of the major cities in India including a side trip to Agra to visit the Taj Mahal. She enjoyed Rome and Venus in Italy, Lisbon and the Algarve in Portugal but did not enjoy playing in an international golf tournament in the Algarve. In fact she called golf a game from Hell. Trafalgar Square in London was a favorite. Upon retirement Audrey no longer wanted a large house and decided that they should buy a condo at the Woodlands off Giggleswick Way in North Edison, N.J. A very nice end unit was available. Audrey did a great job in decorating it, enjoyed its kidney shaped pool and the wooded area that attracted birds. They lived there for 17 delightful years. Audrey felt that it was time to move on and wanted to relocate to a continuing care facility in Tinton Falls, N.J. No units to their liking were available so they ended up at Arbor Glen in Bridgewater, N.J. Audrey was happy in art classes where she did many of the things listed above. Audrey grew up in the Cranford, N.J., home of her parents William and Margaret Hessler, along with two older siblings William and Clair. She had many long lasting friends, one from preschool days, another from second grade, and many from her high school years. All of her friends remember her as spreading joy and fun. A delight to be around. Audrey is survived by her husband Bill, her three children from a previous marriage, David DePaul of Fanwood, N.J., Daryl Flagg of Hampton, N.H., and Jennifer Monahan of Red Bank, N.J.; seven grandchildren; two stepchildren, Donna Geyer of Raritan, N.J., Gail Geyer of Pacific Palisades, Calif., and four step-grandchildren. In lieu of flowers, please make a contribution to a charity of your choice in Audrey's name.
