Audrey L. (Doney) Prescott, 84, of Glasgow, Mont., passed away Sunday, March 3, 2024, at Frances Mahon Deaconess Hospital, Glasgow.

A rosary will be prayed at 6 p.m., Thursday, April 11, at St. Raphael's, Glasgow.

A Funeral Mass will be held at 10 a.m., Friday, April 12, with burial following at Highland Cemetery, Glasgow.

Audrey was born on Jan. 10, 1940, to Dan and Grace (Ebelsizer) Doney in Malta, Mont. She joined three other daughters: Doris, Iris, and Shirley. She attended schools in Malta and graduated from Malta High School in 1958.

Shortly after graduation, she married John H. Cortez and they had a son, John Jr. Over the next year John Sr. worked on a farm outside of Malta where the couple resided for eight years until they divorced.

Audrey and her son lived in Malta for a couple of years and then moved to the Glasgow A.F.B. in the summer of 1969. Audrey trained and worked as a receptionist/secretary, working at various places on the base.

It was around 1976, that Audrey met the man she was always hoping and praying for to spend the rest of her days with, Phillip Prescott. They shared time together, getting to know one another. They built a really good relationship filled with love and laughter. Years later they married on Jan. 1, 1983, in Holy Matrimony at St. Raphael's Catholic Church, Glasgow.

In 1985 the happy couple moved to Glasgow, where Audrey was working as a receptionist at the C.D.C. at Frances Mahon Deaconess Hospital and later she worked at the Mental Health Center, retiring in 2000.

Audrey and Phillip enjoyed their retirement years together until Phillip passed away in 2010. In 2013, Audrey went to work as a Sacristan, at St. Raphael's Church and worked until 2019. After she retired, she stayed home until her final days.

Audrey will always be remembered as a good lady with happy spirits and a nice smile when meeting and greeting people at the stores, on the street, or wherever she went. She will surely be missed and thought of for quite some time.
