Her family's intent is to continue to spread her light and love by supporting causes that were important to her. Examples include; funding opportunities for kids to play soccer at the Portage Soccer Club, scholarships for graduating Portage Northern seniors planning to attend MSU, donating to causes like food pantries and animal shelters. Audrey Hensley, age 22, passed away on November 24, 2023.
