Audrey and George operated Glenrothes Shorthorn Farm in Beaverton together for some 60 years, moving there permanently in 1984.  Audrey was the consummate hostess welcoming visitors from near and far who dropped in to Glenrothes to visit, tour the cattle and enjoy a cup of tea.  A strong community supporter Audrey worked tirelessly as a volunteer at the Pickering and Beaverton Presbyterian Churches and for many community organizations.  Audrey always had a special place in her heart for those who had less fortunate circumstances or for whom life had been unkind and would offer generously her friendship and support.
