Octogenarian Audrey Ghiglione Bender shares birthday memories

From bowling and dancing trophies to a sign that says “Don’t Mistake Me For That Nice Little Old Lady,” almost 80 years of living cover every inch of the tiny living room in Audrey Ghiglione Bender’s South St. Louis house. (Read more about Audrey here).

I share the couch with 17 stuffed animals, a 2009 Gold Glove Award Winners St. Louis Cardinals pennant, and, appropriately, two Budweiser beer pillows. In Dan Tham’s video Audrey describes what she remembers most about her four-month-early 80th birthday bash.
