Audrey L. Hultman died peacefully on the morning of December 9, 2021 at The Village in the memory care unit in Greeley, CO. She was 85 years old.
She was born in Minot, ND to Rudolph and Luella Helstedt. She was married and had four children Faron, Cindy, Jill, and Desiree Eslinger. After her divorce she attended nursing school in Devils Lake, ND and graduated as valedictorian of her class in 1969, she practiced as an LPN until her retirement. In March of 1970 she married the love of her life, Arthur Hultman. They had a son together, John Hultman who brought them much joy. They resided in Minot, ND until they were transferred to CA (her husband was in the United States Airforce), then to Cheyenne, WY until his retirement in 1974, she lost her oldest child, Faron that same year due to an automobile accident. They then moved to Greeley, CO and after a few years moved to Wheatland, WY where they both retired. They had an incredible life driving around the United States after they retired delivering animal cages for Britt’s. They enjoyed every minute with each other whether at work or play. Unfortunately, due to her husband’s illness they moved to Casper, WY where she lovingly cared for him until his death in 2009. She stayed in Casper and enjoyed watching her sons’ children London and Talon grow up. She moved to Greeley in April of 2021 due to declining health and dementia, and so her daughters could assist in her care.
