Biographical or historical data
Audie Tilghman was born in 1909 in Lunenburg, VA to William and Eulee Tilghman, and lived most of her life in Norfolk, Virginia. She was an only child, graduated from Maury High School, and was a life-long member of Norfolk's Epworth Methodist church. She attended the State Teachers College in Harrisonburg, Virginia from 1926-1927 as a first year student. Audie did not return to school after her first year as her family's finances dwindled. She then returned to Norfolk and worked for a Sears Department Store and later as a dispatcher for a furniture moving company. While in Norfolk, she often played the piano at the Loew's movie theatre in downtown and was involved in her church. She married Henry Ottoway Holcombe in 1948, and died in 2001 in Portsmouth, Virginia.
