Audrey WILSON Obituary
WILSON (Lundell), Audrey Audrey Lundell Wilson was surrounded by love when she passed away after a quick decline on Sunday, November 5th, 2017, at the age of 88. Despite cancer, the onset of Alzheimer's, and loss of independent mobility, her last months were some of the happiest of her life. Audrey was born on July 24, 1929, in Brooklyn, NY to Ernest Magnus Lundell and Mildred Gieschen Lundell. A graduate of Garden City High School and Mount Holyoke College, Audrey was the first woman officer at the Long Island Trust Company in Manhattan. A resident of Atlanta for nearly 50 years, she was an avid gardener and volunteered for many years as head of gardens at the Tullie Smith House of the Atlanta History Center. She also volunteered as lead periodicals cataloger in the library of her daughters' school; she was google before computers. Audrey was highly creative in natural arts and a student of interior design. She loved children, dogs, walking on the beach, and laughing with friends. In her later years, she was a philanthropist supporting numerous foundations and charities dear to her heart. Audrey was predeceased by her husband, John R. Wilson, who died in April of this year, and her brother, Ernest M. Lundell III. Surviving are her daughters, Jennifer Wilson Sinek and Julianne Wilson, son-in-law Ronald L. Sinek, grandchildren Lizz Holtz, Heather Sinek, Meg Sinek, and Connor Sinek, and great-grandson Emmett Holtz.
