It is with heavy hearts that we bid farewell to a dear woman and respected coworker at the Community Counseling Center. Audrey Renee Burger, MSW/LCSW, our Clinical Operations Director, passed away on Sunday, October 8, 2017 after a brief battle with bone cancer.

Audrey was a true inspiration to us all. She was a motivator, a dreamer and could energize you with her smile. She was a passionate advocate for suicide and crisis prevention, and was the driving force behind the Suicide Prevention and Awareness Conference, which will see its fifth consecutive year in 2018. Her passion for this and for so much more was contagious and motivated many others to follow where she lead.

Audrey will be missed more than we can express in words, and our thoughts and prayers are with her husband, Philip, and her extended family. We know that she is smiling down on us, and will continue to be an inspiration to us all as we strive to honor her life's work and dedication to mental health.

Online condolences may be left at www.baslerfuneralhome.com. You can honor Audrey with a donation to the Suicide Prevention and Awareness Conference that she helped conceive. You can download/print the Donation Form here, or you can also make a donation over the phone at 573-332-2795.
