Audrey was born & raised in East Boston. She was educated in Boston Public Schools and was a 1978 Alumna of East Boston High School. Immediately after graduation, Audrey began to work at Broadway National Bank in Chelsea. On November 15th 1981, she married the love of her life Robert L. Fisher. The couple settled in East Boston just steps away from her childhood home before moving to Point Shirley in Winthrop. In 1983, Audrey took a position with the Commonwealth of Massachusetts in the Department of Revenue. Audrey’s skill set and dedicated work ethic allowed her to rise quickly and she soon became the Assistant to the Deputy Commissioner of Tax Payers Service Division of the Department of Revenue. In 1996 & then 1998, Audrey was blessed with the birth of her sons, Bobby, Jr. & Zachary. She cherished her role as mother and embraced it with unconditional love. Her dedication was easily seen on the baseball fields, basketball courts, football fields, banquets, fundraisers and many more events for her children & in her community. After her diagnosis with ALS, she maintained her strong will & spirit to continue to live. She continued to work every day until the disease became too debilitating. She was blessed to have her family, extended family, friends, & colleagues around her for support & strength. Audrey was an inspiration to many, not just ALS but to anyone who may be afflicted with any disease. Her unwavering strength was with her until she went home to God.

She is the beloved & devoted wife of 36 years to Robert L. Fisher, Sr., the loving & proud mother of Robert L. Fisher, Jr. & Zachary S. Fisher all of Winthrop. Cherished sister of Coleen A.
