What Matters


Amongst the numerous recognitions and rewards Audrey received over the years, what she prized above all was the peace and serenity she found at La Paisible, her deep and trusted friendships nurtured over many years, and the closeness she shared with Robbie and her beloved sons, Sean and Luca. 

Toward the end of 1992, after Audrey's last mission for UNICEF, she felt progressively more and more ill and, at the time, physicians were not able to pinpoint the origin and thus cause of her worsening state of health. Near year's end, Audrey underwent exploratory surgery and was diagnosed with inoperable colon cancer.

On January 20, 1993 while at La Paisible with Robbie, Sean and Luca by her side, Audrey Kathleen Hepburn gracefully slipped away.
