Audrey Tanner & Lela Kimber

An active church member, she had a great love for her Savior and was very dedicated in her attendance and in her responsibilities. She served in various capacities including chorister and stake Relief Society and Sunday School secretary. She and her husband served a mission to Louisville, Ky.
Audrey loved jokes, puzzles, card games, poetry, music, crossword puzzles, games, singing, dancing, crafts, visitors, chocolate covered raisins and peanut clusters, tomato soup and crackers, cheeseburgers from Arctic Circle, tuna gravy on toast, Laurence Welk Show, grandchildren entertaining, and best of all she loved to go to Grouse Creek to be with her family. ( That would include her favorite cousins)
She was incredibly witty and loved to play on words – and you know how we love to tease as a family – we never forget the silly things family members do. To those who knew her really loved her for all her kindness.
She knew how to play a piano by ear, and she loved to sew, quilt, crochet, draw, and paint.
