Ms. Willis was born December 6, 1947 in Shreveport, LA, where she was a lifelong resident. Her proudest role was as a selfless ,loving mother. Ms. Willis worked in the admitting department at LSUMCS, retiring after 27 yrs of devoted service. She was a loyal friend, and "Aunt Audrey" to many. Audrey was a loving spirit and one of the kindest people anyone could have the honor of knowing.

Ms. Willis was once asked what she'd do with the money if she won the lottery, without hesitation, she stated she'd give one-third to find a cure for sickle cell anemia. The family requests that memorials be made in lieu of flowers to: The Sickle Cell Foundation of Louisiana. http://sicklecellnwla.org/donation.html
The family would like to express their sincere appreciation to the wonderful staff at Riverview Care Center, her nurse Millie, and Dr Deanna Donley.
