Our beloved mother, Audrey Hoagland, departed this world to be with her
Lord at 4:50 a.m., Wednesday, February 4, 2004 at the age of 75. An avid
gardener and past President of the Garden Club, golfer, dart thrower, bowler, gifted
musician, artist, and wonderful cook, Audrey was deftly creative and
talented. She was a loving Mother, grandmother and wife, and, above all,
a shinning light to all who met her. Her energy, humor, love, and
generosity was infectious. Words cannot depict what a great woman our
Mother was.

After moving to Trumansburg in 1955 with her husband, the late Charlie
Hoagland, she made this her home for her remaining years. Audrey worked
as a waitress at Taughannock Farms Inn for 35 years, obtained her RN
license at age 50, and organized the first couples' golf league.
Audrey, and her husband, Charlie, were instrumental in the establishment
of the Trumansburg Golf Course.

Audrey is survived by a son, George; a daughter, Jean Slocum; three grandchildren,
Justine Hoagland and Kira and Kelly Slocum and three brothers, Nelson, Edmond and Ernie.

To us, her children, she represented the best of her generation: a
loving wife and mother, independent, honest, dependable, optimistic,
hard working, community oriented, and uniquely polite, always giving her
best. We could not have asked for a better Mother. We love and will
forever miss Audrey Hoagland.

A Memorial Service will be held at the Church of the Epiphany in Trumansburg
on Saturday, February 7, 2004 at 2:00 pm with the Rev. Gurdon Brewster officiating.

Contributions in Audrey's memory may be directed to the Church of the Epiphany,
P.O. Box 459, Trumansburg, NY 14886 or to a charity of the donor's choice.

The family has entrusted arrangements to the Ness-Sibley Funeral Home, 23 South
St., Trumansburg. 1-888-534-5446.
