Audrey Lake

October 29, 1939 - February 19, 2015

10/29/1939 - 02/19/2015

Audrey Lake was born on October 29, 1939 in Brooklyn, New York to Vivian Harris and Christopher Buckner. She grew up in Brooklyn, and graduated from Central Commercial High School in New York, NY in 1957. After high school she began her long career with the New York City Housing Authority as an Office Associate where she worked for 37 1/2 years.
Audrey married the love of her life, Richard Lake and they were together for nearly 42 years. They enjoyed traveling and spending time with family and friends. After their retirement, they relocated to Chesapeake in 2001. Audrey was devoted to her family and to her friends, who she treated as family. Audrey was fiercely loyal and when she loved you, there was almost nothing she wouldn’t do to help you whenever you were in need. Her caring side shined through when she helped care for her Mother and sister Kathleen during their long illnesses. She was always available to be a sounding board, lend a sympathetic ear, offer encouragement, or provide compassionate and honest advice. Her conversations with her grandson lifted her up through some of the difficult times.
After battling illness for many years, Audrey passed away on February 19, 2015. Left to mourn her loss are her loving and devoted husband Richard; daughter Joanne; son-in-law Ernie; grandson Christopher; brother Leslie; sisters-in-law Blanca, Merle, Eunice, and Cecily; and her nieces, nephews, other relatives, and a host of friends.
Audrey was preceded in death by her mother Vivian; her sisters Kathleen and Helen; sister-in-law Mavis; and brothers-in-law Wilbur Curt, Albert, and Freddie.
The Family would like to thank everyone for their heartfelt condolences. They would also like to express their sincerest gratitude to all those who helped Audrey during her time of illness, especially Josue Cruz, and Blanca and Leslie Buckner.

Dear Family, we are sorry to learn of your loss. May your many memories bring you peace. May the words of Psalm 34:18 bring you comfort. The words of this Psalm of David reminds us that Almighty God is always near to those who have a broken heart; He saves those who are crushed in spirit. Our sympathy to all of you.

To Richard & Joanne, we just wanted to let you know our thoughts and prayers are with you and the rest of the family and friends through this heartbreaking time. It will be the little things that we all will remember, the quiet moments, the smiles, the laughter. And although it may seem hard right now, it will be the memories of these little things that help to push away the pain and bring the smiles back again. We wish we could be there in person for you and the family, but know that we are there in spirit with you, holding you and the family up with love.

Words cannot express the depth of our sorrow over the death of Aunt Audrey. She will be missed, but not forgotten.

Our heart goes out to the entire family during this difficult time and the days ahead.

If there is anything we can do or if you need someone simply to listen, please don’t hesitate to call.

All the Very Best
