Audrey and Heinz lived in Appleton WI until 1984. During their time in Appleton they had two children Bonnie and Gail.

      Audrey was an accomplished cook and homemaker; her favorite place in the world was Disneyland/Disneyworld. She attended Disneyland the year it opened, and visited almost yearly until her late 70s. Some of her grandchildren?s most cherished memories with her are enjoying the rides at Disneyland and Disneyworld with their Grandma, especially the Pirates of the Caribbean (dead men tell no tales) and the Haunted Mansion (?now wait for the ghosts?).
