Obituary for Audrey M West

Audrey M. Shiron West, 86, passed away Sunday, March 19, 2023 at Virtua Hospital in Willingboro. New Jersey. Born in Trenton, NJ, Audrey was the daughter of the late Vincent and Irene Bolos Shiron.

Audrey and her late husband Bruce were married for 64 years. They took great pride in their children and grandchildren's lives and activities; never missing a game or an event they were involved in. They also loved going to the casinos.

Audrey began her hairstylist profession in New Hope, PA. This afforded her the opportunity to rub shoulders with many actors from the Bucks County Playhouse as she styled their hair. She loved sharing many stories of her experiences over the years; a favorite was the time she sat at the piano with Liberace when waitressing to pay her way through beauty school.

A lifelong resident of Lambertville, Audrey owned and operated Audrey's New Image Salon for 50 years, retiring in 2019. Having been in business that long, Audrey made many friends and had many faithful customers. When she was no longer working behind the chair, she enjoyed spending time in the salon visiting with them.

She is survived by two daughters, Debbie Vickery, Robin Mason and her husband Jeff, one son, Bruce West and his wife Sheila, her brother Anthony Shiron and his wife Nancy, her sister Fini Vasey, her six grandchildren Kevin Vickery, Nicole Russell, Janean McClelland, Peter Wyckoff, Bradley and Brian West, and her two great grandchildren Hailey McClelland and Mason Wyckoff, and several nephews and nieces.

Audrey was a very caring and giving person. She donated to many charities including Shriners Hospitals for Children, St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, the Veterans, and the SPCA,

In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to any of those charities that she cared so much about.

A memorial service will be held Friday March 31, 2023 at 12:00 noon at the Garefino Funeral Home, 12 N. Franklin St. Lambertville, NJ. Calling hour will be from 10:00 am until the time of the service at the funeral home.

There will be a private burial for Audrey at a later date. She will be laid to rest at the Washington Crossing National Cemetery in Newtown, Pennsylvania with her husband Bruce.
