Audrey Marie Swofford passed away in her sleep on Monday, April 7, 2014 at Northbrook Healthcare Center in Willits, at age 84. She was born to the late Robin and Minta Bauer (Martindale) on August 14, 1929. She grew up in the mountains above Covelo where she enjoyed being in the outdoors. She was especially fond of her horse "Jimmy" and loved riding the long and winding horse trails between the homesteads and ranches. In her later years she was mostly known for walking from one end of town to the other so she could stop in at the coffee shops for a quick meal and a short visit. Although not known for being a talkative person, she could always hold her own in "giving a hard time" to her coffee buddies. She always expressed a sincere care for others and tried to help them out if she could. Audrey considered herself "retired" after she stopped working at Seaside Industries in Willits. She and husband "Red" enjoyed square dancing, traveling, baseball and being active in the community. Audrey dedicated herself to helping the Willits United Methodist Church where she was an active member. Audrey now joins her late husband A.O. ("Red") Swofford who also was very active in music and ministry of Willits United Methodist Church. She is survived by her daughters Linda and Diane Smalley, sister Opal Miner, step daughter Aleen Swofford, nephews Ron, Denny and Gary Miner. She will be greatly missed.
