Audrey Christiansen

Audrey Jean Johnson Friedow Christiansen, 99 years of age, passed away peacefully on March 6, 2023.

Audrey was born February 8, 1924, in rural Kanawha at her family’s home. She was the fourth child of eight born to her parents, Gundvel and Nellie (Hanson) Johnson. Audrey was baptized and confirmed at the Kanawha Lutheran Church and graduated Kanawha High School, class of 1941. While in primary school, Audrey was taught by her older sister Lavonne for a year at Norway #6 (the Johnson Country School). In high school, Audrey was the baton twirler for Kanawha High, which she loved. She also was crowned the first annual Miss Kanawha in 1941 and was selected as Queen of the Mason City Music Festival that year, both events she remembered fondly.
