Audrey Kathryn McAlevey Obituary
McAlevey, Audrey Kathryn (nee Venneman), Fortified with the Sacraments of Holy Mother Church, Monday, October 28, 2013. Born Audrey Kathryn Venneman on August 31, 1931, in Saint Louis, Missouri, she died peacefully and quietly on Monday, October 28, 2013, surrounded by her family, following a prolonged and arduous battle with Parkinson's Disease. Daughter of the late Henry J. and the late Caroline Dierkes Venneman; survived by her loving husband and devoted caregiver of 62 years, Raymond J. McAlevey; dear mother of Susan M. Huckfeldt (Jerry), Mark McAlevey, Steven J. McAlevey (Terri); beloved grandmother of Ryan T. Huckfeldt (Amanda) and Casey I. Cook; great-grandmother of Kylar and Vivian; devoted sister of Dorothy M. Eschbach; our dear cousin, aunt, great-aunt and friend. Audrey was a woman of quiet dignity and powerful faith who will be missed by those she loved and those who loved her. The family also wishes to extend its heartfelt gratitude to the skilled-care and Hospice Team of Bethesda SouthGate for the exemplary care and compassion they provided during her final weeks. As a final demonstration of her generous spirit, Audrey donated her body to the Washington University School of Medicine with the hope that the medical community might one day find a cure for Parkinson's Disease. Her family and friends take comfort in the fact that she is now free from the bonds of the disease that slowly consumed her. Services: A Memorial Mass is scheduled for 10:30 AM, Saturday, November 9, 2013, at Saint Francis of Assisi Catholic Church, 4550 Telegraph Road, Saint Louis, Missouri 63129.
