She was a Newington resident for 52 years. In her early years, she worked from her home as an electrologist. Audrey was a devoted member of the Church of the Holy Spirit, Newington. She loved to travel and loved spending time at the beach, especially floating in the water, therefore enjoyed her homes in Point-O-Woods Beach, CT, and Ft. Pierce, FL. She also loved her trips to the casino and was a remarkable pie maker. She was especially known for her apple pie and her pork and sauerkraut. She was the happiest when surrounded by her family, and her grandchildren and great grandchildren were her greatest love. Always devoted to her six children, she leaves Richard Schaller and his wife Kathy of Rocky Hill, Gustave Schaller of Newington, Greg Schaller and his wife Nancy of Berlin, Audrey Caruso and her husband Johnny, and Sandy Petela and her husband Gregory, all of Wallingford, and Joanne Schaller and her partner Sandra Tullius of Durham; her loving grandchildren, Scott Schaller and his wife Tammy, Heather Wenzel and her husband Derek, Renee Balda and her husband Brian, Dana Sirois and her husband Joshua, Kelly Cooper and her husband James, Kevin Schaller and his wife Lindsey, Keith Schaller, Rebecca and Matthew Caruso, Eric and Kirstin Petela; great grandchildren, Olivia and Bryce Schaller, Nicole and Colleen Balda, and Everett Sirois.
