Audrey D. Carley__________________________
Audrey D. Carley, age 80 of Clearwater Beach, Fla., and Philip, S.D., died November 10, 2013, at her home in Clearwater Beach.
On Sunday, November 10, 2013, Audrey Carley joined her parents, Joseph and Edith Barber, and 12 siblings in their final resting place.
Born in Manchester, England, on November 4, 1933, she immigrated to the United States in the fall of 1953. Her first marriage brought a daughter, Georganna, and two sons, Chris and Roy Iversen, into this world and her second marriage another two sons, Jerry and Milo Carley. Children, grandchildren and great grandchildren were her life. With the blending of the two families there were a total of nine children, 20 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren.
Audrey will be remembered for her excellent work ethic and her unforgettable assistance helping her husband develop and operate a successful steakhouse and lounge in Philip in the mid-1960s and 70s. Later, she assisted with the operation of their grocery store in Philip and finally a venture of her own with a series of ladies fashion shops in Philip and several surrounding communities.
Audrey retired in the mid-1990s and started putting pressure on Jerry to retire and spend winters in Florida. In 2000, her dream came true and they started doing just that. Her final wish was to return to Florida to spend her final days in the place she loved. That wish came true also. She loved being by the sea.
A memorial service will be held at a future date.
