Audrey Lucille Thom, of Cambridge, formerly of St. Paul, Mora and Braham, passed away on Thursday, May 28, 2009 at the GracePointe Crossing West Gables of Cambridge. She was 84 years old.
Audrey was born on June 24, 1924 in St. Paul, Minnesota to parents Clyde & Magdeline Parriot. She attended and graduated from St. Paul schools and went to work for the University of Minnesota as a bookkeeper for the Agriculture Department.
On September 16, 1950, Audrey was united in marriage to Dr. Leroy W. Thom in St. Paul, Minnesota. Together they moved to Cambridge where they raised their family and Leroy began his veterinarian practice with Audrey’s help. The family moved to Mora where they lived for 12 years before settling in Braham. After their retirement, Audrey and Leroy loved to travel, going to Europe and Alaska, and wintering in Arizona. After Leroy passed away in 1995, Audrey moved back to Cambridge where she continued to reside until her passing.
