Audrey Ward Obituary, Death – Audrey C. Ward, a beloved resident of Hamilton, Ohio, died away quietly at Berkeley Square on November 6, 2023, at the age of 95. Audrey Brockway was born on April 29, 1928, in New York, New York. Her parents were Clifford and Margaret F. Brockway. She traveled from the busy streets of New York to the center of Ohio, where she settled in and became well-liked by the locals.
Audrey and Robert N. Ward tied the knot in Teaneck, New Jersey, on June 22, 1947. Their union lasted for almost sixty years, until Robert’s death in 2006. Audrey, a Metropolitan Women’s Club member, enjoyed playing tennis and taking care of her garden, among other things. But her true essence was characterized by her love of music; she was happiest when she was playing the piano. Audrey’s two daughters, Nancy Bergen and Janice Hunsche, who each brought her pride and delight along with their families, have continued her legacy.
Five grandsons and ten great-grandchildren provide witness to the wonderful tapestry of the family she has woven during her life, and they carry on her legacy. Her parents and one sister passed away before her. Berkeley Square Theobald Hall will host a memorial reception on Friday, November 24, 2023, from 2-4 PM. Audrey invites friends and well-wishers to join her for coffee, tea, and her favorite cookies as she shares stories of her colorful life.
Attendees are asked to wear blue, a color that greatly resonated with Audrey, in honor of her choice. To provide them with a private time of contemplation, the family has scheduled a service in Rose Hill Burial Park’s Garden Mausoleum. To honor Audrey’s giving and caring nature, she asked that memorial contributions be sent to the charity of one’s choosing rather than flowers.
The people of Hamilton come together to honor Audrey Ward’s life and pay tribute to a woman whose love of community, music, and family brightened the lives of everyone who had the good fortune to know her. May she rest in peace and leave a legacy that will inspire future generations.
