Audrey Mae Fancher

Audrey Mae Fancher, 75 of Potterville, a woman who was known for always helping others, passed away on January 5, 2024. Audrey was born July 21, 1948 at Fort Benning in Columbus, Georgia to Aubrey and Flora (Decker) Eason (Pearson). In her younger life, she loved roller skating with her cousins. Family and friends meant a lot to her. Audrey retired from General Motors where she was more than just a line worker, she was able to fix many different types of equipment, was involved in many different committees, and became a mother figure to many of her coworkers there. Perhaps her most coveted accomplishment was the completion of her Master’s Degree in Child Development to use in the caring of her son.

Not one to like being in the spotlight, but always looking for ways to help others, she spent the majority of her life protecting her son Calvin and providing options for his life. She liked to work behind the scenes doing things to support her son and extended family. She fiercely cared for others, often putting their needs above her own.

Audrey loved to travel to North Carolina and Alabama to visit family. She was also an avid NASCAR fan. Part of her travels included visiting many of the southern NASCAR tracks following the progress of her favorite driver Butch Fedewa, a local friend.

Audrey is survived by her beloved son, Calvin Showers Jr; her chosen brother and sister, Ken and Diane Pierce; and cousins, Brian Decker, Jeff Decker, Gerald Decker, Rochelle Decker Bargerhuff, and Lester Ingram. She was preceded in death by her parents, Aubrey Eason, and Flora Eason Pearson; her stepfather, Glenn Pearson; and her much loved brother, Gary Eason.
