Audrey was born on October 31, 1916, in a small shotgun house in Samstown, Louisiana, the first of ten children born to Lawrence Adams and Agnes Hebert Adams. She will be remembered by family and friends for her remarkable memory concerning facts about family, friends, birthdays, deaths, towns where she lived, and places where she visited. She was a devoted Mother, Grandmother, and Great-Grandmother and loved to be with all of her family, reminiscing, telling stories, laughing, and having fun. She especially loved times in the family when there were new babies. Audrey was always interested in what was happening in the world and was always up to date on current events and trends because she had always "just read an article." The bus trips with her friends, Teel Blanchard and Mary Dunn, brought her great enjoyment, and for many years, Thursday of each week was devoted to a 42 party with her friends.

During the 1940's, Audrey, her husband, and sons lived in many places in Louisiana and Texas as a result of her husband's employment with Shell Oil Company. Living in small apartments, "tourist courts", and with family on occasion was difficult, but Audrey was always up to the challenge. The moving around finally came to an end, and in 1950 the family made their last move and made Sheridan, their permanent home.

Audrey is survived by her sons, Warren C. Dupre Jr., and Wayne L. Dupre and wife Natalie of Sheridan. Grandchildren, Mark Dupre and wife Kim of New Braunfels, Texas, Michael Dupre of Baltimore, Maryland, Matthew Dupre and wife Ashley of Spring, Texas, Byron J. Dupre and wife Julie of Austin, Texas, and Lara Dupre Sudik and husband James of Port Lavaca, Texas.
