Audrey Backus Obituary
POQUOSON - Audrey Backus passed away at home Tuesday, May 17, 2016, just five weeks after her beloved husband's death. She was born in Poquoson and lived most of her life there. Audrey was a caring person and would give you her last dime, but she would also tell you what she thought. Audrey was employed at Food Fair Grocery Store for 25 years and in her working years she was also a seamstress, nail technician and great cook. She could do anything she set her mind to, and also loved going on cruises and visits to Atlantic City. Audrey was preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, Charles "Sonny" Backus; parents, Robert and Annie Holloway; brother, John Wayne; sisters, Vionia and Naomi; and grandson, Robert Christopher Backus, Jr. Audrey leaves behind her loving family; son Robert (Kathy); sisters, Ramona, Brenda (George), and Carol (Allen); brother, Robert (Ellen Mae); her special and caring nieces, Ronnie (Moe), Freda, Tammy (Ty) and Nina; and grandson Wesley (Tina). A Celebration of Audrey's life will be held Friday, May 20, 6:30 PM, at Claytor Rollins Funeral Home, Poquoson, led by Pastor George V. Insley Jr. The family will receive friends immediately following the service, and at other times the family will be at Audrey's home. Burial will be private. In lieu of flowers, make donations to the Southeastern Virginia, 6350 Center Drive, Suite 102, Norfolk, VA 23502, and/or the Peninsula SPCA, 523 J. Clyde Morris Blvd, Newport News, VA 23601, Attn: Megan Steele. Online condolences to claytorrollins.com .
