Duncan, Audrey D. DELMAR Audrey Dolores Duncan passed away on September 10, 2012 after a short illness. Audrey was born in New York, New York, to Linford and Lilla and was raised in Jamaica, West Indies. She returned to the United States after graduating from high school. She attended Hunter College in New York City before marrying the love of her life, Conrad Duncan. While raising their children, Audrey took on the duties of a U.S. Army officer's wife in the United States and overseas, making lifelong friendships during these tours of duty. Audrey enjoyed hosting bridge club parties, ladies teas and taking on many charitable endeavors as part of her duties. When Audrey and her family moved to Delmar in 1975, she began selling real estate, working with several local real estate offices. She retired in 2000, to care for her husband, which she did for more than 10 years. Her greatest joy was being with her family and friends, and she especially loved to host Thanksgiving dinner. Audrey adored flowers and plants. She loved spending hours creating beautiful gardens outside her home and lovingly tending the many plants inside her home. She enjoyed the watching and wagering on the thoroughbreds running at Saratoga and was an avid and accomplished bowler for more than 40 years, earning dozens of trophies in the mixed doubles and women's leagues. Audrey was predeceased by her loving husband, Conrad; her son, Michael; her infant daughter, Linda; her parents; and her brother, Ralph. Audrey leaves behind to cherish her memory, her beloved daughters, Patricia Holliday (Rhoderick), Denyce Duncan Lacy (Thomas), Leslie Fottrell (Kevin); daughter-in-law, Rebecca Duncan; eight grandchildren and three great-grandchildren.
