Audrey Robison Obituary
Audrey Robison, 91, died at Evenings Porch Assisted Living, Bayfield, May 9, 2018.

Audrey was born in Cisco, Texas, and spent much of her childhood in Arizona. She went to nursing school in Minneapolis, Minnesota, and became a Registered Nurse. She was Head Nurse for the Phelps Dodge Hospital in Clifton, Arizona, when she met Elmer "Rob" Robison. They were married in the Clifton Presbyterian Church in 1952.

Audrey worked as a nurse until having two children, then became a stay-at-home mom. After living in four different states, Audrey and Rob retired in Tucson, Arizona. Audrey and Rob enjoyed traveling, hiking, golfing, square dancing, and tennis in their retirement. Their many hikes included multiple trips in the Grand Canyon and the Milford Track in New Zealand. Audrey exercised and walked throughout her life and continued to do so until her last days.

Audrey's husband of 62 1/2 years, Elmer "Rob" Robison, preceded her in death in March 2017. A son also preceded her in death in 1962 at the age of nine. She is survived by daughter Laurie Robison & son-in-law Chris Schultz of Bayfield; four nieces & three nephews.
