She is survived by three sisters and three brothers: Barbara Pike of Fraser Park, CA; Shirley Davenport of Exeter, CA; Pamela Lansden of Visalia, CA; Larry Phillips of Exeter, CA, Ronnie Phillips of Exeter, CA; and Danny Phillips of Rancho Cordova, CA.
Audrey was preceded in death by her parents and ten brothers and sisters: Ruth Phillips, Mary Crowley, Sonny Phillips, Walter Phillips, Betty Rudolph, Gene Phillips, Lorraine Chamberlin, Gary Phillips, and Steven Phillips.
Growing up, Audrey worked on her grandfather’s family farm and attended Exeter High School. With such a large family, Audrey and her brothers and sisters entertained themselves by playing outside games such as war with rocks and baseball. Audrey was known to run around with her two sisters Lorraine and Barbara. The three sisters would get into mischief especially when the family lived in San Francisco prior to moving to Exeter, CA.
Audrey met Robert Stanley Luttman (Bob) in Exeter, CA at a dance while he was on leave for the United States Army as a private. They married on June 9, 1954, in Woodlake, CA. In 1955, Audrey and Bob welcomed their first son, Michael Stanley Luttman in San Pedro, CA where Bob was serving in the Army. In 1959, they welcomed their son, Allen Curtis Luttman in Tulare, CA. They lived in Exeter until moving to Visalia, CA.
After moving to Visalia, CA, Audrey worked at Exeter Produce until working for EMI- Everything Metal Imaginable which created bronze sculptures. At EMI, she was the purchasing agent until she retired.
Audrey also attended the First Pentecostal Church of Visalia (presently known as The Master’s House). She taught Sunday School to first through fourth-grade students for twenty-five years. She was also a member of the Golden Voice Choir. In addition, Audrey and Bob took motorcycle riding trips with church members all over California.
In 1995, Audrey moved with her family to Colorado where she built a home with Bob in Florissant, CO. She attended The Master’s House where she was a prominent church member. In Colorado, Audrey owned her own house-cleaning business. In 2004, Audrey and Bob celebrated their 50th Wedding Anniversary with a party thrown by their children and grandchildren. They relocated to Colorado Springs in 2011.
Audrey was a prayer warrior and had an infectious ability to draw all generations to the Lord. She was everyone’s grandmother and mother as many would call her Nana, Grandma, or Mom. She loved telling stories, spending time with family, and worshiping the Lord. Whenever there was a church event, she was there. Whether a church member was a young child, teenager, or adult, Audrey always took the time to listen.
Audrey's legacy is one of courage, strength, and faith. She shined brightly with a twinkle in her eye that was unmistakable - even through her toughest times. She embraced life with passion and enthusiasm; an inspiration to us all to never give up. Even when things weren't going her way, she kept her spirit and faith alive, always seeking out the next opportunity to spread the love and hope of Jesus Christ! Audrey was truly one in a million, leaving behind her radiant mark that will shine on forever. She finished her course speaking in a heavenly language with her hands lifted up; henceforth, there is laid up for her a crown of righteousness.
She is preceded in death by her husband Robert Stanley Luttman and her eldest grandson, Curtis Allen Luttman.
