Services will be held on Saturday, Jan. 18 in Barrington, Ill. for Audrey Armour Ayars, who died from a long illness on Christmas Eve.

A lifelong and frequent visitor to Boca Grande, Audrey was the daughter of Jean and the late T. Stanton Armour of Boca Grande and Lake Forest, Ill.

Born in 1953, she attended the Lake Forest Country Day School and Westover School in Connecticut, was trained in Chicago as a Montessori teacher and taught at the Lake Forest Montessori School. She later taught at Lake Forest Country Day School, until her marriage to William Ayars of Barrington.

She is survived by their two children, William S. Ayars and Skyler Ayars; her mother; her brother, Thomas S. Armour Jr.; her sister-in-law, Robin P. Armour; and a very large extended family.

Beautiful and much loved, Audrey was known for her kindness to others and her great sense of humor. She is sorely missed.
