Audrey Christine Howell, age 73, of Burlington, passed away May 13, 2020 in Sedro-Woolley.  She was born November 3, 1946 in Park Rapids, Minnesota to John and Phyllis (Nelson) Nelson.

Audrey was the youngest of three children.  She was a very kind, thoughtful and witty person who was a loving mother and a friend to many.  Audrey’s favorite hobby was to go thrift store shopping, looking for that perfect second hand treasure.  She always dressed with perfection and looked her best no matter where she was going or what she was doing.  In 1965, Audrey graduated from East Valley High School in Moxee, Washington.  Listening and singing along to Doo-Wop genre music was a favorite pastime of Audrey’s.

Audrey is survived by her son, Erik Howell; her sister, Beverly Western; nieces and nephews and many other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by her parents, John Nelson, Clifford Johnson, Phyllis Johnson; and her sister, Valeria Smith.

At Audrey’s request, there will be no services; her final resting place will be Terrace Heights Memorial Park, Yakima.  Please share your memories of Audrey and sign the online guest register.

    Audrey was a good friend of our family. We always enjoyed our visits with her and her family! She was definitely a family girl, loving to be with her mother, Phyllis and son Erik. My husband and I would have so much fun, and lots of laughs with them all! She was always so beautifully dressed, and had a smile and sense of humor that would cheer us all. We mill miss her immensely, and we are sending our love and sympathy to her surviving son! Frank and Brenda Wilfert
