Obituary of Audrey Epp
It is with extreme sadness that we say goodbye to Audrey Epp. Audrey was born in Moose Jaw on Sept 25, 1930 and passed away on March 4, 2019 at the Dr F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital with her husband and best friend, David, by her side. Audrey is survived by her husband David (of 65 years), and sons David, Eric, and Brian (Diane); she was grandmother to five grandsons: Andrew, Brian, Jesse, Christian, Tyler and great-grandmother to Allister (son of Andrew & Andrea). Her memory will also be cherished by her special niece Sharleen (John) Langford. She was predeceased by her parents, George and Annie Moore, and her sisters Peggy (Ken) McLelland, Joyce (Norman) Fletcher, and Shirley Mitchell. Audrey was born and raised in Moose Jaw. She loved school excelling in math, English and sports. She played on the basketball team and loved baseball. She moved to New Westminster, BC for a brief time, but missed her beloved prairies too much to stay away. When she began her working life, she worked at the Bank of Commerce and Canadays. In her early married life, Dave and Audrey moved to Lafleche where she was the Secretary Treasurer at the hospital during which time she also raised her three boys. When the family moved back to Moose Jaw in 1967 they purchased Handfield Motors, later renaming it to Epp Motors. They had the car dealership for 15 years. Audrey also worked their grain farm, and loved farming and driving the combine. She was a hard worker, but Audrey also liked to have fun. She was part of the Cosmopolitan Club for many years. She loved going to Temple Gardens on Saturday night to dance the night away with Dave. Her love of sport continued into her adult life: bowling, speed skating, and of course watching and cheering on the Warriors. Audrey was generous of heart, always giving to her family and community; she was involved with Meals on Wheels and also belonged to the United Church for over 60 years. Audrey was a wonderful wife, partner, mother and friend. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her. As an expression of sympathy, donations made in memory of Audrey to a charity of your choice would be appreciated. The Epp family would like to say a heartfelt thank you to all of the staff at the Dr F.H. Wigmore Regional Hospital for their wonderful, compassionate care. A Funeral Service will be held on Monday, March 11, 2019 at 1:00 pm at Zion United Church, 423 Main St N, Moose Jaw, SK, with Reverend Tim Ellis officiating.
