Audrey Marie Florek, a beloved soul who touched the lives of many, was born on June 15, 1951, in Sauk Centre, Minnesota. She peacefully departed this world on January 7, 2024, leaving behind a legacy of love and warmth that will be cherished by those who knew her.
Audrey was the beloved daughter of Clarence Alfred Theiler and Bernice Marie Bussman. She was the loving mother of Eric Florek and the doting grandmother to six beautiful grandchildren - BT, Tyler Roberts, Brianna Roberts, Gabrielle Florek, Lincoln Florek, and Andrew Florek.
Born as the eldest among 11, Audrey shared a special bond with her brothers and sisters. Audrey is survived by her siblings, Alice Hanson (Dan), Kathy Lemm (Ken), Mary Vanheel (Don), Marlene Pflipsen (Mike), Joe Theiler (Julie), David Theiler (Bonnie), Dale Theiler, and Lori Buttweiler. She is preceded in death by her brothers Jim Theiler and Eugene Theiler (Donna). Together, they formed an extended family that supported and loved one another throughout the years.
Audrey's love extended beyond her immediate family, embracing an extensive number of nieces and nephews. She is survived by 24 nieces and nephews and a remarkable 57 great-nieces and nephews, all of whom were touched by her kindness and generosity.
A resident of Radcliff, Kentucky, Audrey was an active and vibrant member of her community. Known for her welcoming smile and endless compassion, she left a lasting mark on the hearts of those around her. Audrey had a passion for motorcycles, and her red bike was not just a mode of transportation but a symbol of her adventurous spirit and passion for life.
Her dedication to family was shown in every moment she spent with her loved ones. Audrey had a unique ability to make everyone feel cherished, and her presence was a source of happiness and comfort. Her principles were selflessness and giving, and she touched the lives of many through her acts of kindness.
In the words of Audrey, “we will endure a lifetime of missing you, for the privilege of being able to love you and know you.” Her memory will live on in the hearts of those who were lucky enough to have shared in the warmth of her love and the brightness of her spirit. As we say our goodbyes, let us remember Audrey Marie Florek not with sadness but with gratitude for the beautiful life she lived and the love she so generously gave upon us all. May she rest in eternal peace.
