Audrey Frank, 88, St. Augustine, Florida, passed away quietly in Inverness, Florida, on Aug. 25, 2016, close to her family, after a brief stay in hospice. She moved to St. Augustine in her early sixties as a recent widow, and her shop, Stamp Augustine on Aviles Street, was one of the first art rubber stamp shops in the area. She was an inspiration to her family and friends that you could accomplish anything at any age. From photographer and children's writer in her younger years, to shop owner in her sixties, at age 84 she got back to her roots as a writer. Her short stories can be found on many online writing sites and in several anthologies.
She wrote seven romantic family novellas, a memoir, and a book of short stories published on Amazon. She was a member of The Florida Writers Association.
She is survived by her three children, Pam King, Barbara Barth, Steven Frank, and their families.
The family will have a private memorial for her later this month in St.
Augustine, her home and the city she loved and used as the base for her writing.

I will always miss you Audrey. We shared many good times together,always going out to celebrate each others birthday, going to stamp conventions while she was able and the Wednesday calls or visits. I have several of her books and yes she does capture you in the first paragraph. I shall always treasure our friendship,

I am so sorry for your loss. I did not know Audrey very well, but my Mother loved her shop so much and I would be there with them and listen to them talk on and on about the stamps, and their art. God Bless

I miss her daily phone calls and our dinners out. Every time the phone rings, I think it's her. I'm the second art rubber stamp store in St. Augustine so we had a lot in common. I miss her a lot.

I had the pleasure of working with Miss Audrey at the Government House. She was a blessing to know and I will always treasure our long talks and her words of wisdom. She spoke so often of her daughters and even let me read the Barbara book the unfaithful widow. She was sharp and provided so much knowledge to the visitors that would be passing through St Augustine. The world is a better place because of sweet and kind people like Miss Audrey and Miss Jeannine. They both might be gone but never forgotten.

I met Audrey a few years back driving my cab in St. Augustine. As an aspiring writer myself, we had many talks about the craft and what I would need to do to become a published author. What a wonderful lady.

Book signing at River House a few years ago.
My wonderful mother will be in my heart forever. She was an awesome woman who accomplished everything she set out to do. Growing up our home was full of pets to spark a child's imagination, from lizards, frogs, mice, fish, cats, dogs, ducks, and even a pet monkey. While raising her family she wrote children's stories and became a sought after wedding photographer. Later in her early sixties, after our dad died, she moved from Georgia to Florida, Jacksonville at first, close by my sister. Then on to St. Augustine, where she opened her art rubber stamp shop. She loved sharing the new art form with her customers. Her pets were still exotic. She raised birds and had a huge iguana on her porch. At 84, she started writing again, short stories and novellas. Her way with the written word was direct and her dialog captured you from the first paragraph. Creative and artistic, she chose to reinvent her life at a time when many slow down. She lived to see her dreams come true and is an inspiration to me to do the same. I miss you, Mom.
