Mourning the loss of one of Audrey's Angels, Mr Robert Alderson. ... See MoreSee Less

On Tuesday, April 18th 2017, Audrey’s Angels lost a beloved Angel, Mr. Robert Alderson, Sr. Mr. Alderson, and his wife, Audrey, founded Audrey’s Angels 16 years ago to provide joy and enrichment to senior citizens living in small group care homes. Bob and Audrey have shown us through their dedication and simple actions that individuals can indeed positively impact the world and change the lives of others. We offer our sincere condolences to the Alderson family. Funeral Services will be held Friday, April 21, 2017, 11 a.m., Paradise Valley United Methodist Church, 4455 E Lincoln Dr., Paradise Valley, AZ 85253.
