Audrey Marlow

Posted: April 27th, 2018

AUDREY MARLOW, Daily Mirror newsdesk secretary for a quarter of a century, died on Friday, April 20 (2018), aged 88.

She joined the Mirror from a similar job on the News Chronicle when that paper closed in 1960. After she retired, she and her husband Terry, a former librarian at the Chronicle, moved to the Norfolk village of Brancaster.

The funeral will take place at St Mary’s Church, Brancaster, Norfolk at noon on May 22.

From Deborah Thomas, former Daily Mirror Feature writer, and current AMP chairman: Many of us will be saddened by Audrey’s death. She was the efficient lodestar in the middle of a frenetic newsroom. I was always terrified when I went abroad for the Mirror and Audrey was like a mother to me. She arranged everything and made it all sound so simple.
