Audrey Lynn was born on April 29, 1973 to Doug and Ann Hefner Dunlap in Lubbock, Texas. She was a beautiful baby and grew up to be a beautiful young lady. She attended Rush Elementary, Mackenzie Junior High, and Lubbock High School. She was a gymnast and cheerleader while in school. She attended South Plains College and Texas Tech University. She then moved to Chicago to live with a friend for a year where she worked with special needs children and as a waitress at Fat Tuesday’s. She then moved back to Lubbock for a while before moving to Houston where she worked as Leasing Agent for apartments. There she met her husband and they had two beautiful children together. They moved to California in 2004 and a year later she had a traumatic brain injury and was left physically disabled. After spending 2 years in hospitals and rehab facilities she was finally well enough to travel back to Lubbock with her mom. She has resided at home with her mom for the last ten years.Audrey was the strongest person we have ever known. She was funny, beautiful, caring, strong willed, and never gave up. Before her brain injury she was a very active person. She loved to rollerblade down the boardwalk in California and around Chicago. She loved to work out and was always the life of the party. Her smile never failed to light up the room. She loved to dance and be the center of attention. She made friends everywhere she went and was loved by everyone. She loved her children and was very involved with their school and activities. She loved her children more than anything and gave the world to them, never giving up until they were safe and by her side for the last few months of her life.Audrey had a fantastic team of physicians, nurses, and medical staff. A special thank you to Dr. Kelly Klein and the Texas Tech Physicians Family Medicine team that has cared for her so much. They have been a huge support system for Audrey as well as her whole family. Also, thank you the staff at UMC, especially the MICU nurses, physicians, respiratory therapists and other medical staff.Survivors include her mother, Ann Dunlap; children, Benton Maxwell and Annabella Rose Christopher; sisters, Mandy Renee Dunlap, and Alicia Nicole Dunlap; nephew, Jayse Howard Parchman; niece, Megan Elizabeth Casarez; and maternal grandmother, Patsy Ruth Hefner;She was preceded in death by her father, Delbert Douglas Dunlap.
