Wilmington - Audrey E. Gioffre, age 84, passed away peacefully on Thursday, January 21, 2021.
Audrey was born and raised in Wilmington, DE. She graduated from P.S. DuPont High School and immediately went to work at Wilmington Trust Company, until she married the love of her life, Ralph Gioffre, who passed away January 4, 2021. Audrey loved working at Winterthur Museum for over 27 years and being surrounded by all that beauty.
Audrey was a dedicated mother and MomMom first and foremost. She treasured her friends, children, grandchildren and embraced every moment with her loving family. Audrey loved working crossword puzzles and playing games. Those who played against her can attest that she certainly was a card shark! One of Audrey’s favorite things was to sit on the beach, soak up the sun and listen to the ocean. The excitement of spending summers at the beach with her mother-in-law Freda meant so much to her. Enjoying that time with so much of the Gioffre Family created memories that have been passed down for many years.
Audrey is pre-deceased by her loving husband, Ralph Gioffre and son, Kevin, who passed away in 1981, as well as her parents Aubrey and Eleanor Gregg and in-laws Frank and Freda Gioffre.
She is survived by her children Gayle Gioffre McKearin (Bob), Jim Gioffre and Gary Gioffre (Penni); her loving grandchildren Rob McKearin (Megan), Michael McKearin (Susie), Josh Quillen, Laura Gioffre, Jacob Gioffre and Sophie Gioffre, as well as her ten great grandchildren. She is also survived by her in-laws Lucille Eyre (Bill), Marion Buddo (Jim), George (Joanne), William “Weg” (Lynn), Bess Beste (Robert), Deborah, Eileen, and Barbara Giannone.
We are beholden and forever grateful for the loving care given by Rose Court, Maris Grove and especially to Willow Tree Hospice staff for the best care we could have asked for.
Friends wishing to honor Audrey are invited to make a donation in her name to Ronald McDonald House of Delaware, 1901 Rockland Rd, Wilmington, DE 19803.
