Audrey was a lifelong New Yorker, raised in Brooklyn but a long-term resident of Port Washington, New York. She relocated to the Atlanta area in 2007 to be closer to her daughter and family.

She had two wonderful husbands, Nat Kaiser and Albert Raisin, and was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.
The family is especially grateful for all the wonderful, caring staff at the Solana East Cobb. They respected Audrey’s independence and intelligence and treated her with dignity, kindness and loving support, especially in her final months. A special thank you to Patricia, Sharon, and Jackee, her incredible caregivers.
