Mrs. Audrey Mae Witherspoon was the daughter of Elease Williams and the late Luther Woodberry.   She was born on February 25, 1970 in South Carolina.  God called His beautiful angel home to take an eternal rest on Sunday, March 31, 2019. 

 Audrey attended Wilson High School.  Later in life, she gained employment with the food service industry.  She worked more than 20 years at Burger King as a persistent and faithful worker. Her diligence and work ethics spoke for itself.   She was promoted to a manger shortly before she became ill.

Audrey loved serving God in her spare time.  She fellowshipped and worshiped at Mt. Pisgah Baptist Church.  She knew God was a way maker and she always put her trust in Him because she knew God never fails. 

She loved her children.  She was high-spirited and never let anything get her down.  She was known as Beyoncé, Black Beauty, Ting-a-Ling, but known to many as a good friend and to others as a mother that will be greatly missed.
