Audrey Marietta Volp, 100, of Stockbridge, died on September 21, 2018, at Libby’s House in Chilton. She was born January 14, 1918, daughter of Orville and Anna (Meier) Head. On December 30, 1947, she married Richard Volp at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Stockbridge, and together they celebrated 65 years of marriage before his death in 2012.

Audrey attended two years of Normal School and went on to earn a teaching degree at the University of Wisconsin – Oshkosh. After graduating, Audrey taught in Brothertown, Hilbert Elementary, and retired from Stockbridge Elementary after 53 years of service. She was proud to be the editor and publisher of the Stockbridge Alumni Newspaper following her retirement.
