Audrey Maryann Stinar

It is with great sorrow that we report the sudden passing of our beloved Mom, Sister, Aunt and Grandmother. She entered eternal life on June 19, 2009.

Audrey was born in Nimrod, Minn., on Jan. 31, 1935 daughter of Alvin and Marie Benson. She resided in Wadena until she moved to Pinole, Calif. in 1983. An entrepreneurial spirit, she opened her second ladies clothing store, The Hut. In 1987, she obtained her Real Estate License and worked as a Realtor for Security Pacific until 1999.

Her joy was her family, swimming in her pool, road trips, gardening and visiting with friends.

She is survived by her children: Mike Stinar of Pinole, Calif., Jackie Corey of Pinole, Calif., Kathy Casares of El Sobrante, Calif., and Melissa Stinar of San Luis Obispo, Calif.

Grandchildren: Ryan and Arin Corey, Cody and Tanner Casares, Tracy Haug, Tonya Glatzmier and Terra and Tiana Stinar.

Great-grandchildren: Kayden and Lyric Haug, and Adelyn Glatzmier.

Sisters and brothers: Harvey Benson, Ilene Stinar, Gloria Lake, Duane Benson, Denny Benson, Marvis Haro and Gary Benson.

We recognize that she will be missed by many friends and extended family members. We will never forget her remarkable strength, character and strong will!

She was preceded in death by her beloved parents Alvin and Marie Benson; brother, Curtis; and son Bradley J Stinar.

Services celebrating her life will be held on Sunday, June 28 at 1:30 p.m. at the Bass Club, (next to the Nantucket) in Crockett, Calif., 94525.

In lieu of charitable contributions, in Audrey's memory we ask that you spend intentional time with a loved one.
