Personal Quote:

Trivia:

Her last word was reportedly "Jayne!" Her sister Jayne Meadows rushed to her bedside when she heard of her impending death, and after Audrey said this last word, Jayne took her little sister's hand and Audrey squeezed it. She slipped into a coma and never said another word, passing away on February 3, 1996, in Room 8102 of Los Angeles' Cedars-Sinai Medical Center. See more »
