Audrey was born May 21, 1939 in Little Falls to Wallace & Anne (Biniek) Pelkey. She married Clarence Posch on May 29, 1961 at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Little Falls. Audrey was a homemaker and a member of Annunciation Catholic Church where she was a member of the Christian Mothers, sang in the choir, and was a religious education teacher for over 25 years. She enjoyed taking road trips in the RV with her family, being in the sun, gardening, cooking, baking, and spending time with her family. Audrey was a loving, crafty, kind, and selfless person who gave compliments to everyone. She always had a smile that lit up the room, and most importantly she was very proud of her family.

Survivors include her husband of 58 years, Clarence of Rice; children, Debbie (Bob) Then of Rice, Brenda (Will Fallert) Regouski of Little Falls, Greg Posch of Rice, Gary (Meredith) Posch of Sauk Rapids, Anita (Rob) Lindholm of St. Cloud, and Leanne (Jason) Brown of Sauk Rapids; brothers and sisters, Gerald (Laurie) Pelkey, Marilyn Brennan, Robert (Marilyn) Pelkey, and Jeanette Ginter; grandchildren, Amanda, Brianna, Mackenzie, Brady, Cullen, Madelyn, Ethan, and Cooper; and her puppy, Snuggles.
