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.
