Audrey – Anna Leilani Hickey

Audrey – Anna Leilani Hickey was born March 25, 2002 in Bellevue and passed away Oct. 23, 2017 on Bainbridge Island at age 15.

Audrey leaves behind a mother, Heather; father, Sean; sister, Alexandra; a cat Juno; dogs, Sunny and Skipper; and friends, teammates, schoolmates and the Bainbridge Island community.

Audrey will be remembered for her love and empathy of all animals – having at one time gerbils, birds, cats, dogs and took care of and rode horses. She loved the outdoors, taking walks on the beach and collecting shells, windsurfing at the Columbia Gorge, horseback riding, swimming, camping, hiking and backpacking with friends.

Audrey was known for her creativity and dry sense of humor – she loved drawing, painting and sculpting. She enjoyed writing stories and scripts — participating in Destination Imagination and making short films with friends.

Audrey also was a young athlete who played Select soccer for years, Lacrosse and ran cross country. She loved music and dabbled with violin, ukulele, guitar, piano and played trumpet at Sakai and Woodward.

Audrey – Anna was very empathetic and would often go out of her way to help others – friends, family, and strangers with a smile. She was an avid Girl Scout and participated in 4H. Mostly Audrey was a free spirit who was loved and who loved, who is now free from her pain that she kept inside.

She said her version of heaven was to live in a little house on a hill with her pets, next to a river with fresh air.

Audrey-Anna’s celebration of life was held Dec. 16, 2017 at the Suquamish House of Awakened Culture, Suquamish.
