Audrey Faye Anderson Legg passed away in the early morning hours of Sept. 18, 2015, just two days after celebrating her 82nd birthday. She was born in Stringer, Mississippi, to Lamar and Beatrice Anderson. Her three brothers were Harold Ray, Latrell and Larry Anderson.
Funeral services were at 2 p.m. Sunday, Sept. 20, 2015, at the Rose-Neath Funeral Home in Minden. Officiating was the Rev. Steve Gilley. Interment was at the Gardens of Memory, Minden. Visitation with family and friends was at Rose-Neath Funeral Home on Saturday, Sept. 19 from 5 until 7 p.m.
Audrey worked for many years as a bank teller, first in Brooklyn, New York, where her husband, Jim, was stationed in the Navy; then in Baton Rouge, where Jim attended LSU, and finally for many years in her hometown of Minden, where she and Jim raised their family.
She was a graceful, elegant, and devoted wife and mother to her three sons, as well as a committed daughter to her parents and brothers. She was a proud and loving grandmother to eight grandchildren and remained active in their lives. They adored and looked up to her. She was a very active member of the First Baptist Church senior adult group, where she enjoyed singing in the senior adult choir and participating in many senior adult activities. Her family looked to her as a shining example of tireless and devoted love for others.
Audrey was a passionate sports fan, most notably following the LSU Tigers football team, and years back the hometown Minden Crimson Tide. It was a joy to watch her in her later years as she continued to follow all LSU sporting events very closely. She was a supporter of the Minden Crimson Tide in her earlier years, participating in the Minden High Quarterback Club, and cheering the Crimson Tide teams on to state championship victories in both football and baseball in the 1980 and 1981 seasons.
Audrey is survived by her children, Mike Legg of Minden, Don and Catherine Legg, of Monroe, and David and Rhonda Legg, of Yardley, Pennsylvania. She is also survived by one brother, Latrell Anderson, of Laurel, Mississippi. She is survived by her eight grandchildren: Amy Legg of San Antonio, Texas, Mark Legg and wife Lindsey of Tomball, Texas, Corbin Legg of Monroe, Kaleb Legg of Baton Rouge, Bailey Richardson, of Monroe, Olivia Legg, Adrienne Legg, and John David Legg, all of Yardley, Pennsylvania.
Serving as pallbearers will be sons Mike, Don and David Legg, along with grandsons Mark, Corbin, Kaleb and John David Legg.
In lieu of flowers the family requests that memorials be made to First Baptist Church Building Fund in Minden.
