Audrey Kaune Restani Smith, age 57, passed away peacefully on Tuesday July 4, 2017, in her Walnut Creek, CA home. Audrey was born in Boston, MA on September 25, 1959. Growing up as a daughter of a Navy Captain, she moved 15 times with ease, always able to make new friends and enjoy her new environment. She graduated from Sweet Briar College with a B.A in Sociology and Economics and continued to start earning her Masters in Business. Audrey worked in various positions within the AAA Insurance Company. She was a devoted mother and enjoyed time in the kitchen experimenting with new recipes and family favorites. She actively volunteered at both of her children’s schools, especially the Seven Hill’s School. Her friendliness and kindness to all people, and her incredible strength, is a tribute to the beauty of her heart and soul. Her inspiring presence will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure to have known her. Audrey is survived by her parents, James and Pauline Kaune; her husband, Cabot Smith; her children, Jennifer Restani and her husband Christopher Johnson, and Christopher Smith; her future grandchild; her brothers, Bradford Kaune and his wife Mary, Jason Kaune and his wife Kristin; her nephews, Matthew, James, Aleksander, and William Kaune; and other family and friends. A memorial service will be held at Saint Stephen’s Episcopal Church in Orinda at 2pm on July 22. In lieu of flowers, the family requests memorial donations be made to a charity of the donor’s choice.
