She was Aunt Audrey. We knew all that was good about her. I’m proud for others to know that she was really a good, caring person who was loved very much.” By The Penny Hoarder Sponsored Content Remember America’s heroes on Memorial Day Pike County Sheriff’s Office offering community child ID kits Audrey Sheppard grew up in rural Pike County, met Hank Williams at a medicine show in Banks, married him and, by most all accounts, pushed him into stardom, into legendary status in the world of country music.But how would a performer from Reading, Pennsylvania tell a story about Audrey Sheppard Williams? The answer probably was not what the audiences expected. “Actually, we didn’t know what to expect,” said Dinah Kelsey of Troy, who is familiar with stories of Audrey Williams.  “Dolores Hydock told Audrey’s story in her own voice and in the voices of Lucretia, Audrey’s daughter, and Lynette, her sister. She told Audrey’s story with honesty and sensitivity. The story was put together beautifully.

She didn’t deserve all the bad things said about her.”His wife, Pat, agreed.“That was one of the best performances I’ve ever seen,” she said. “Like folks were saying after it was over, Audrey’s true story has finally been told. She deserved for the truth to be told.”Peggy Faulk said the performance was an indication of how personality can affect the outcome of one’s life.“Audrey did not want to live in a small town. She wanted to get out into the bright lights,” Faulk said. “She was driven. Sometimes it works out well, sometimes it doesn’t.”Gail and Rob Thomas of Pensacola are patrons of the We Piddle Around Theater and are familiar with Hydock. “Six of us came to the Audrey Williams story,” Gail Thomas said. “We all loved it. What a wonderful performance. I thought it would all be in first person but to hear the story from the voices of Audrey’s daughter and her sister made for a very believable story.”Thomas said Audrey came across as a strong woman and it was possible that her strength worked against her.“Audrey Williams was used to taking care of business, to doing for herself,” she said. “So, she turned to drinking and isolation instead of reaching out to those who loved her. If they had known, maybe things could have turned out differently. But either way, she was portrayed as a human being. We were proud of that.” Plans underway for historic Pike County celebrationlast_img read more
