RHINELANDER / OREGON - Audrey L. Aylesworth, age 82, of Rhinelander and formerly of Oregon, passed away on Friday, July 3, 2015, at Milestone in Rhinelander. She was born on Nov. 3, 1932, in Dent, Minn., the daughter of Frederick and Emilie (Wilschewski) Bunkowski.
Audrey graduated from Devils Lake High School in North Dakota and then took business courses at the junior college in North Dakota. She married Robert Aylesworth on Sept. 2, 1951, in Devils Lake, N.D. Audrey worked as a divisional secretary and then also took over the Placement Office for the Chemistry Department at the University of Wisconsin-Madison from 1965 until retiring in 1994. She was a member of People's United Methodist Church in Oregon from the early 1960's until 1995. During that time Audrey worked on many committees, which involved planning the congregation's 150th anniversary celebration, the annual Presidents' Day Roast Beef Dinner, and the Wednesday night dinners. Audrey was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She also pursued many interests including cooking and baking, sewing, gardening, painting and writing short stories.
Audrey is survived by her husband, Robert; sons, Dr. Robert (Sue) Aylesworth and Mark (Mary Ann) Aylesworth; grandchildren, Rebecca (Jason Paulson) Aylesworth, Brett (Amanda) Aylesworth, Paul (Sara Ansell) Aylesworth, and Laura (Josh Brown) Aylesworth; great-grandchildren, Sophia, Lorelai, Alaina and Ruby; and sister, Cheryl (Don) Graves.
