     Audrey M. Dorsett, age 78, of rural Sheldon, Missouri, peacefully passed away Friday night, January 13, 2017, surrounded by family at her home.

     Audrey May and her twin sister, Mary Fay, were born June 30, 1938, in Lockwood, Missouri, to Charles and Mary (Burrows) Taylor.  At the age of 14, Audrey moved with her family to California where she soon met the love of her life, Robert W. Dorsett.  They married June 30, 1954 in San Bernardino and Audrey delighted in her role as a devoted homemaker, wife, and mother to their four children.  In 1966, they moved to Kansas City, Kansas, where she earned certification as a C.N.A. and Med-Tech.  Audrey’s kindness and skill as a nurturing caregiver blessed many through her work as a private duty nurse in the Kansas City metro area as well as at Sharon Lanes Nursing Home and Presbyterian Manor.  After moving to Vernon County in 2002, she had more time to spend in her flower garden or to crochet intricate and unique wall hangings to share with family and friends.  Her door was always open and her cookie jar full in anticipation of spending precious time with children and grandchildren.  Audrey was a faithful member of Fairview Church in Jerico Springs.

     Survivors include her husband of 63 years, Bob, of the home; her daughter, Jackie (Terry) Marks, rural Sheldon; three sons, Mike (Connie) Dorsett, Kansas City, Kansas, Mark (Linda) Dorsett, South Greenfield, Missouri, and Rob (Sheryl) Dorsett, Grove, Oklahoma; a brother, Fred (Ruby) Taylor, Greenfield; two sisters, Dixie Crouch, South Greenfield, and Mary Raley, Robertsdale, Alabama; 19 grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren; and a large extended family.

     Audrey was preceded in death by her parents; a brother, Bob Taylor; a sister, Laverne Spielman; and a grandson, Michael.

     Funeral services will be held at 2:00 p.m. Saturday, January 21st at Daniel Funeral Home in Lamar.  Burial will be in Memory Gardens Cemetery.

R.I.P. Audrey. I will always remember you and your sister in PE class. You were so sweet and kind to me. I never made friends easy but you were easy to be friends with. May all your days of pain be gone and you can be free from all of stress that life throws your way. we all will miss you.

Grandma, you have been such an amazing influence on my life these past 16 years. As sad as I am to know you're gone, I'm glad to know you're in the best place possible. I can only hope to be half the woman you were. This is not goodbye, so to you I say;

So Long And Goodnight, l Love You

Grama, you've always been my voice of reason, forgiveness and love. I'll always be eternally grateful of Jesus for having you in my life. I'll miss you and your laughter. Your laughter was so infectious and your side-eye glinty and scrunched up faces you'd make would always crack me up. I'm honored to be your namesake and now I must carry on your legacy the best way I can, with love, forgiveness and kindness. I only hope I honor you in the way of our precious Lord. I'll be seeing you again and "What a Day That Will Be!" I love you my sweet grama.
