Audrey Bauer, 83, of Southbury, CT, died April 5, 2010 at Danbury Hospital. She was born Dec. 14, 1927, in Los Angeles, CA.
She moved to New York, NY, as a young adult to pursue a career in modeling and worked with many designers but was best known in the industry for traveling and working exclusively with an up-and-coming designer from Paris at the time, who is well known today, Christian Dior. She married her beloved William Bauer and lived in Manhattan. Then they moved to Manhasset where they raised their family. After William’s passing in 2002, she moved to Southbury, CT to be closer to family.
She is survived by sons: William Bauer, Jr. of Northport, NY; Jim Bauer with his wife Karen, of Newtown, CT; her six grandchildren; Billy III, Lilly, and Mimi of Northport, and Lauren, Thomas and Scotty, of Newtown, CT.
Audrey lived her life with grace, enthusiasm, and kindness. She adored her children and grandchildren and took great pride in their accomplishments. She attended as many football and lacrosse games as she could, and attended her granddaughter’s ballet recitals regularly. She loved to cook and entertained often. Some will never forget the amazing homemade sauerkraut that was served at the Snack Shack at Hawley Field in Newtown, during football season.
She will be dearly missed by her family and all those that loved her.
Graveside services were held Saturday, April 10, at 10:45, at Flushing Cemetery, Flushing. The Honan Funeral Home, 58 Main Street, Newtown, is assisting the family.
