Audrey J. Polzin, age 81, a resident of Petersburg IL, died Sunday December 8th 2013 at the Sunny Acres Nursing Home in Petersburg.
Audrey was born June 30, 1932 in Kenosha to the late Oliver and Ruth (Berry) Shields. She was a homemaker and took great pride in her five children. She loved puzzles, old movies, Elvis and the Chicago Cubs. Audrey especially enjoyed the time she spent fishing, camping and watching birds near the Sangamon River in Petersburg. She loved her children and grandchildren unconditionally and though her manner could be brusque, they all agreed that she was “one of a kind”. The “Aud-Fest” in honor of her June birthday is a family tradition that will live on.
Audrey is survived by her sons James (Maria Eduarda) Aceto of Racine, Dale Polzin, Jr. of Iron River MI and Robert (Mary) Polzin of Kenosha; and her daughters Carol (William) Hummell and Ruth Polzin both of Petersburg IL. She is also survived by her grandchildren Alex Aceto, Emilie Aceto, Valentina Aceto, Steve Polzin, Jennifer (Tim) Jones, Danielle Polzin, Nicole Polzin, Stefanie (Tom) Hansen, Kim (Matt) Granstrom and Lisa (Wayne Koski) Hoffman. She is survived in addition by four great-grandchildren Katelyn, Maxwell, Brayden and Draven.
Audrey was preceded in death by her parents, a brother William Shields and a daughter Nancy in infancy.
