  2. Chris, sorry for your misfortune of not finding out the news earlier. Perhaps you could contact Rock funeral home, they should have a record of the burial location. I tried but I could did not get a result. Please keep in mind, it may have been in the final wishes of Audrey to not publish the info. Should that be the case, a burial site is just a final resting place and you may find comfort in returning to a familiar place where you shared precious time with her. You can anytime, anyplace remember her and I’m sure it will help heal your feeling losing her. Best wishes for you in your search.
