Sevrence, Audrey

Written by David Green.

Audrey Arlene Sevrence, 82, of Fayette, Ohio, died Jan. 14, 2013, at Heartland of Wauseon.

She was born Nov. 5, 1930, in Montpelier, Ohio, to the late Ora and Mildred (Govin) Zolman. Audrey married Carl Jay Sevrence on Oct. 24, 1947, and he preceded her in death on March 27, 1984.

Audrey lived her early life in the Alvordton-Kunkle area and attended school in Kunkle. She retired in 1994 from Fayette Tubular Products, following more than 30 years of employment.

Audrey enjoyed fishing trips in Coldwater, Mich., as well as knitting and bowling. In her later life, she often spent time camping at Lazy River Campground with her friend, Ralph Powers.

Audrey is survived by her three daughters, Marsha (and Jerry) Leupp of Archbold, Ohio, Lois Sevrence of Fayette, and Amy (and Mike) Cuff of Fayette; five grandchildren, Nichole Leupp, Christopher Leupp, Melissa (and Troy) Bentley, Christina Cuff, and Michael Cuff; and eight great-grandchildren.

In addition to her parents and her husband, she was preceded in death by a sister, Ella Mae Borton.

A private memorial graveside service is planned at Pleasant View Union Cemetery in Fayette. There will be no public arrangements.

Arrangements were made by Eagle Funeral Home-Barrett Chapel in Fayette.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations are suggested to the Gorham Fayette Fire Department.

    ART PARK—A design created by Poggemeyer Design Group shows a “pocket art park” in the green space south of the State Line Observer building. The proposal includes a 12-foot sculpture based on a design created by Morenci sixth grade student Klara Wesley through a school and library collaboration. A wooden band shell is located at the back of the lot. The Observer wall would be covered with a synthetic stucco material. City council members are considering ways to fund the estimated $125,000 project and perhaps tackling construction one step at a time.
