DeDe Audet Says Goodbye to Her Beloved VNC

These are a few of the people who worked with her on the board.  Left to right are Jed Pauker, DeDe, Darryl DuFay, and Barbara Gibson.

DeDe Audet said goodbye to her friends and members of the Venice Neighborhood Council at the regular VNC meet Wednesday (17 May).

DeDe is a former president of the Venice Neighborhood Council (VNC) and was a member of Venice’s original governing body called the Venice Town Council that later evolved into the Venice Neighborhood Council.   The VNC was about to be decertified when DeDe took office.  She brought it out of the “decertification drama” and put it on the road to what it is today.  After serving office she covered the Department of Water and Power for the VNC and only recently gave it up.    She never missed a VNC meeting when she was in town.

She always gathered a group of friends after each meet to have a drink. She had to have her whiskey.She is noted for carrying a “medicinal” flask.  Many of the people who served with her attended the meeting. She is moving into an assisted living facility in Chatsworth this month and will be near her son, Brian, who lives in Sylmar.

Linda Lucks, former VNC president, talks about DeDe and later reads letter from former VNC President Mike Newhouse.

Ivan Spiegel, parliamentarian, introduced DeDe Audet.
