Audrey Lee Rose Hux, age 74, of Roanoke Rapids, passed away on Monday, February 11, 2019.
Audrey was born in Halifax County, daughter of the late Lester Freeman Rose and Blanche Johnson Rose (Shell). In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her son, Christopher John Hux, her daughter, Melinda Gail Hux, her sister, Verlie Rose Cullom, her step-father, Johnnie Shell, and step brother, Alton Shell.
Audrey was retired as a Special Project Supervisor from Variety Wholesalers where she spent many years enjoying her travels setting up stores in the southeast. For most of her career, she worked in retail, but also was a licensed cosmetologist. She attended Liberty Pentecostal Holiness Church, enjoyed fishing at the coast with her husband, playing bingo, and loved spoiling her grandson, Matthew. She was always a positive person with a quick wit that would make the people around her laugh and enjoy life. She was happiest when she was in her rocking chair drinking a Sun Drop.
