AUDREAUN "AUDREY" M. (BORN) MCGINLEY
It is with sadness our family announces the passing of our precious Mother, Audreaun “Audrey” Marie (Born) McGinley, formerly of Sheraden on Saturday, December 21, 2019. Audrey was in declining health and passed peacefully surrounded by her family.
Born August 23, 1925 in Hastings, PA she is the second oldest daughter of seven children to the late Henry and Martha (Kane) Born and the last of their children to pass. Audrey also is step-daughter to the late Marie (Muri) Born and step-sister to three sisters and two brothers.
Audrey moved to Pittsburgh at 19 to live with her Aunt, (the late Hilda Kane) and worked as a sales associate at Gimbels Department Store. She naturally gravitated to Church and joined Holy Innocents Sodality where she would rise to the office of President. She met the love of her life, Thomas V. McGinley and they married on October 6, 1951. With five children all-in-school, Audrey returned to work as a sales associate with Joseph Horne’s Department Store for a span of 22+ years.
Audrey was a faithful member of Holy Innocents Catholic Church in Sheraden for over 70 years. Her life was made complete with her immediate family, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, siblings and in-laws, nieces, nephews, cousins and the many friends she made along life’s journey. Through the years, Audrey enjoyed attending musical productions at Heinz Hall and the Benedum. She traveled often to several parts of the United States and internationally to Rome and the Greek Isles along with her sister Dolores.
A beloved Mother, Audrey leaves behind to cherish and honor her memory, her devoted children and spouses, Tom (Cynthia Folger) McGinley, Jim (Chrissy Johnson) McGinley of Julian, PA, Mary (Gene) Adamowski, Pat (Marci Weiland) McGinley and Ann (Lew) Wintermantel; her seven grandchildren, Brandon (Katie Fletcher) McGinley, Ian (Jenny Reicke) McGinley of Dallas, TX, Megan McGinley, Maura (Nik) Plante, Jenna (Mike) Macek, Erika Wintermantel, and Meredith McGinley; four great-grandchildren, Teresa, Ambrose, Margaret and Agnes McGinley; three special grandchildren, Coty, Caleb, and Abby Johnson all of Julian, PA; sisters, Carol (Born) Cretin of Patton, PA and Delma (Born) Corbin of Camp Hill, PA; brothers, Herman Born of Murrysville, PA and George (Sharon Lowmaster) Born of Carrolltown, PA; sisters-in-law, Lucy (Gelormino) Born of Saxonburg, PA and Rita (Kirsch) Born of Plum, PA; and brother-in-law, William “Bill” Ehmann of Bridgeville, PA.
