Audrey L. Skelton, 69, of Highland Township, Chester County, passed away at her home on Sunday, June 9, 2024. Born in Huntington, NY, she was the daughter of the late Captain George I. Skelton and Mildred Kraemer Skelton.

Audrey never met an aminal she didn't want to help or a person she didn't want to mother. She loved food, music, art, casinos, easter egg hunts, snooping, collecting stuff, collecting hobbies, and collecting people to take care of. She "couldn't" use technology, unless it was to online shop. If she didn't have her coffee she was likely to start a civil war. She remembered birthdays of strangers and people she met when she was a child, but couldn't remember her glasses even if they were on her head. She drove her children (biological and other) nuts but was also the person they turned to for help, advice and fun. She carried a fake cockroach in her purse to prank people wherever she could get away with it. She was the party, the laughter, the love, the annoyance, the caring, the openness, the goodness, the pack rat, the collector, the life of all of us and she will be missed like hole in the heart.

She is survived by one son; Alexander Robertson of Coatesville and one daughter Allyson J. McClure also of Coatesville and two sisters; Georgia Bethel of Hayesville, North Carolina and Ginger Greenwood of Venice, Florida. She was preceded in death by two sisters; Barbara Southall and Dori Skelton.

A Celebration of Life Service is being planned and will be announced at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, please donate in her name to the Brandywine SPCA, the LGBT Equality Alliance of Chester County, and or the Coatesville Youth Intiative.

Funeral Arrangements have been entrusted to the Wilde Funeral Home of Parkesburg. Online condolences can be posted at
