Audrey Mary Martin, age 82, of East Dundee, IL, passed away on July 11, 2021. She was born March 27, 1939 in Chicago, IL to her loving mother, Pearl Carlson.

Audrey spent many years snowmobiling and boating. She enjoyed Bingo, Yahtzee, playing the lottery, and reading mystery novels. She also loved to cook. She was always trying new recipes, and she made the best soups you’ve ever tasted!

Audrey was sweet and sassy, with a great sense of humor. Loved ones will remember her very caring heart. She adored her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren, and took great pride in them. Family gatherings were her greatest joy.

Audrey was preceded in death by her mother, Pearl Carlson; son, Stephen Martin; and brother, Edward Connally. She is survived by her children, Richard Martin, Craig (Anna) Martin, and Susan (Walter) Sweeney; God daughter, Brandi (Tom) Dauer; siblings, Doris Connally-Miller, Donald (Carol) Connally, and Floretta Seeland-Connally; grandchildren, Richard (Amber) Martin, Stephanie (Joseph Himes) Martin, Cameron (Lauren) Martin, Kelsey Martin, CJ Martin, Kylie Martin, Michael (Jackie) Pease, Sean (Kayla) Pease, and Nicole (Mike) Becker; and several nieces, nephews, and great-grandchildren.

The family has decided to mourn their loss privately. A celebration of Audrey’s life will be held later this summer.

Final arrangements entrusted to Symonds-Madison Funeral Home.  For more information, call 847-741-1128 or visit

Eternal peace and salvation granted onto you and may perpetual light shine upon you!

  4. Will attend my Loving Sisters Celebration Of Life. Wonderful, caring and hard working. My Sis didn’t pull any punches, told it like it was and if you didn’t like it, too bad. We loved Bingo and Casino’s, though our pocketbooks didn’t. My heart ❤️ is broken in two, as many others. It’s so had not talking to her every morning and night. Thanks for your words of wisdom and our secret talks.

  5. God Bless & keep you my dear friend. Rest in peace.
