Cole and Audra Wilson

Cole and Audra Wilson

They were married Sept. 11, 1993, and loved to travel, particularly road trips. They traveled every spare minute they could find, and in May 2015 they flew to Rome, rented a car and drove through Italy, Hungary, Austria, New Czech Republic and Germany. Other favorite trips were to many of the national parks in all of the western United States.
They also made two different trips with a carload of kids to help work on repairing homes damaged by Hurricane Katrina. They then went back to Louisiana to work for Habitat for Humanity in building 100 homes in partnership with the Oprah Winfrey Foundation. While living in Louisiana, they made road trips to all of the southeastern states.
They both graduated from Central Washington University in June 2004. Audra majored in accounting and went on to obtain her CPA license, and Cole majored in business administration. At the time of their deaths, Cole was employed at the Washington State Department of Transportation and Audra was employed in the accounting department of Grant PUD.
They were both creative, talented and vibrant people who were an integral part of our lives. They will be greatly missed.
Cole and Audra are survived by their parents, Esther L. Nolan of George, Linda (Charles Jr.) Chittim of Sprague, Kenneth D. (Pat) Wilson of Cheney; paternal grandmother Goldie L. Nolan of Quincy; brothers Donavon Nolan, Jeremy (Tammy) Nolan and Torry (Suzanne) Wilson; sister Pam (Chris) Realme; uncles Lester (Sue) Albright, Ted Razey, Terry Razey, David (Darla) Nolan, Roger Nolan; aunts Polly Razey and Sandra Nolan; cousins Les (Mickey) Albright, Shalynn (Neil) Sligar; and numerous nephews and nieces.
Cole and Audra were preceded in death by father Gregory K. Nolan and grandparents LJ and Betty Razey, Lester and Esther Albright, and William Nolan.
A graveside service is planned. Time and date to be announced later.
A celebration of life is planned for May 28, starting at 10:30 a.m. at the George Community Park. All are invited.
