Obituary for Audrey Van Pelt Fuller Combe

Audrey Van Pelt Fuller Combe

September 20, 1930 - February 18, 2016

Audrey was born in Keansburg, New Jersey. She entered peacefully into rest on February 18, 2016 at her home in Saint George, Utah.


Audrey was the fifth of ten children. She was raised in New Egypt, New Jersey with four of her siblings on a poultry farm by her foster mother Miss Barbara Dietz.


After High School, Audrey worked at a law firm as a secretary. She soon became employed by the United States Air Force where she met her first love, Otis Kay Fuller from Ogden, Utah. They married in 1951 and raised three beautiful children: Gregory, Pamela, and Jeffery. Audrey and Kay divorced 27 years later.


Audrey then met Archie Frank Combe, her second love while working at Hill Air Force Base in Clearfield, Utah. They were married in 1979. Archie brought four children into the family. They were very much in love. Archie passed away in 2010.


Audrey spent her entire life helping and being of service to others. For many years she served as a Pink Lady and Candy Striper at different hospitals and health facilities. Audrey was always at the neighbors and family member’s homes helping with whatever they needed. Her constant love for others was second to none.


Audrey cherished her children, she loved life, she was blessed with a beautiful voice, loved to sing, had a passion for gardening, enjoyed beautiful birds, and her favorite hobby was crocheting.


Audrey’s last and favorite job was at Lindquist Mortuary. She had the magic touch for comforting people. She was a delightful woman, loved by many and will be dearly missed.


Audrey is survived by her son, Gregory Otis (Donna) Fuller of Clayton, California; her daughter, Pamela (Robert) Murray of Washington, Utah; stepchildren, Tawnya Combe of California, April Combe of Ogden, Utah, and A.

I had the honor of working with Audrey at Lindquist Mortuary. She is a gracious and loving woman who greeted each person that stepped in the mortuary door with kindness, patience, and a soft voice. I sang for them at the time and Audrey always made me feel loved and that I had done a fantastic job- I even have a pair of her favorite shoes that she said she could no longer wear. They are a reminder of a beautiful woman, inside and out. I'm sad I didn't know she had passed until the Sunday after her funeral but know that she made a huge impact in my life and self confidence. I will always remember her laugh and beautiful smile. Thank you for sharing her with me even for such a short time.

I am so sorry to hear of the loss of your mother. I remember your mom from when Kay and my dad worked at Wonder Bread. (I hope I got that right!) But when my dad passed she was there every day for us and our mom. She was always there if you needed her. My deepest sympathy.

Audrey was a wonderful friend. She was so kind and thoughtful. We had some very good times together. She did so much for everyone that she knew. Her kindness will always be remembered. Audrey was a beautiful person inside and out. She will be missed by all of us that had the privilege of knowing her.
