Our family is deeply saddened to inform you that my mother, Mrs. Audrey Patrick Johnson Thornton passed away in her sleep on the morning of April 8, 2019. 

As many of you know, she was having health challenges for some time now, but at 93 years young, she put up a good fight.


We are comforted in knowing that her passing was peaceful and painless, and we remain encouraged by our faith and support from family and friends. 

Condolences may be sent to the family of Audrey Johnson Thornton Fund, 3235 Bridal Path Lane, Dresher, PA 19025. 

Following mom’s wishes, in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the American Women’s Heritage Society (AWHS), the organization that she founded 35 years ago to maintain and preserve the historic Belmont Mansion, 2000 Belmont Drive, Philadelphia, PA 19131.

Repast immediately following services at The Belmont Mansion, 2000 Belmont Mansion Drive, West Fairmount Park, Philadelphia, PA 19131

–Regretfully submitted, Dr. Naomi Johnson Booker
