Mrs. Audrey Whittington Sidden, age 86 of Wilkesboro, passed away Thursday, May 21, 2020 at Wake Forest Baptist Medical Center. 

A celebration of life will be held at a later date. 

Mrs. Sidden was born December 16, 1933 in Wilkes County to Henry Claude and Grace Dyer Whittington. She was a teacher in the Wilkes County School and Nottoway, VA school systems for 35 years. Mrs. Sidden had such a big heart and always made sure those she loved didn't want for anything.  Mrs. Sidden loved spending time with her family, enjoyed games, and wanted all animals to be cared for.  Mrs. Sidden was spunky with an incredible sense of humor and her laugh lit up a room.  There isn't a person who met Mrs. Sidden who wouldn't have a fun story about her.  Mrs. Sidden was loved and will be missed by all who knew her.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Tyre Abraham Sidden; a daughter, Terrie Sidden,  and a sister Claudine Lovette. 

She is survived by a daughter, Tonya Sidden Granger and husband Chris of Winston Salem; a son, Neil Sidden and wife Laura of Denver, NC; two sisters, Bobbie Burke of Wilkesboro, Midge Adams of Wilkesboro; two grandchildren, Kelsey Granger of Winston Salem and Collin Granger of Charlotte.
