The world lost a true angel, Audrey Davies Gavin, who was born May 4, 1938, to Frank and Winona Fietkau Davies, in Duchesne, Utah. She lived in Duchesne until she was 8 and then moved with her family to Mapleton, Utah.
She married Jack Asay in 1953 and had 2 sons; Rodney and Greg. She married David L Carter in 1959 and had 3 children; Connie, Corey, and Lucinda. She married Terry C Gavin in June of 1976 and had 2 more sons; Warren and Clint.
In Audrey's younger years she was teased about running out of gas anywhere and everywhere she went but was never left in the lurch thanks to her father and brothers. Her claim to fame was “I put $5 in last week”. She always welcomed people into her home and made them feel like family. She was called ‘Mom” by her children's friends and they looked forward to eating her tacos, and beef stroganoff. Audrey sewed many costumes for the pep club and a suit coat and pants for her husband Terry and was a wonderful seamstress. Her children’s friends, nieces, and nephews loved coming to spend time with her and also loved her cooking. She had a bubbly personality and connected and maintained relationships with many she came in contact with.
Audrey was a wonderful cook and will be remembered for carrying on family traditions of making her mother’s boston creams and cookies at Christmas and sharing them with her friends and family. Audrey was talented in knitting and especially crocheting and loved giving her handmade gifts to others. She loved the outdoors and fishing. Her excitement when catching a fish was evident as her pole widely whipped around in every direction stopping only after hitting everyone in arms way.
Audrey struggled with diabetes and was diagnosed with kidney failure in 2014 and started dialysis 3 times a week. She encountered many rough times with her health but was blessed to have medical professionals, neighbors, friends, family, and especially her daughters Connie, Lucinda, and husband Terry by her side who tenderly took care of her daily needs.
She is survived by her husband, Terry C Gavin, and her 7 children: Rodney (Lani) Asay, Greg (Chris) Asay, Connie Carter, Corey (Karen) Carter, Lucinda Carter, Warren (Misty) Gavin, Clint (Trish) Gavin, and her grandchildren: Adam, Cliff, Allyson, Weston, Braydon, Chelsey, Cody, Camille, Cortney, Shalyn, Colby, Natalie, Tyler, Keylee, Travis, Ciera, Dylan, Ava, and 29 great-grandchildren and her sister Mildred Haymond.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Frank and Winona Davies; her brothers: Eugene, Verl, Lyle, Kirk, and Russell. She also sadly lost her grandson Dylan Gavin, and great-granddaughter, Madilynn Rose Cooley.
To know Audrey was to love Audrey! She touched many lives and she will be greatly missed.
A celebration of life will be Friday, October 21 at 1 pm at Legacy Funeral and Cremations in Spanish Fork. The family wishes to thank the kind and expert medical care she received at Mountain View Hospital and the dialysis team.
