Audrey Garay

SHARON — Audrey Garay, 73, of Sharon, passed away, Wednesday, April 24, 2024, peacefully at home after a brief illness.

She was born on Dec. 20, 1950. Audrey spent her life as a dedicated caregiver and worked as a CNA at Sharon Hospital for many years.

She was known by everyone in town for her knack for mischief that brought laughter to all for decades. Her pranks were legendary, and her antics brought smiles to faces young and old. She knew how to turn an ordinary day into an extraordinary adventure, whether she was harassing her granddaughters at work, driving throughout the northwest corner looking for UFOs, or simply sporting some fake teeth and a Halloween mask at the local gas station. Yet amidst the laughter, Audrey was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. Her love knew no bounds, and her kindness touched the lives of all who crossed her path.

She leaves behind a legacy of love, laughter and cherished memories that will forever be etched in our hearts.

She enjoyed playing bingo, and spending time with her sister and her close friends, Sebby and Joe Amato.

Audrey is survived by her loving husband of 52 years, Joseph Garay; her son, Scott Garay, two daughters, Trisha Bailey and Monica Garay; several grandchildren and great grandchildren; and her four siblings, Robert, Karen, Gary, and Eugene Tuthill.

Audrey is predeceased by her brother Kevin Tuthill.

Per Audrey’s request there will be no funeral service held.

The Kenny Funeral Home has care of arrangements.
