Dyck Audrey.jpgOn Saturday, December 22, 2007 at Salem Home in Winkler, Audrey Dyck aged 81 years of Winkler formerly of Morden, MB went to her eternal rest.

Audrey was born April 7, 1926 at Myrtle, MB to William and Daisy Helen Hurry.  She lived with her parents at Myrtle until the age of 4 when they moved to Morden.  Her mom died when she was 10 years old.  Clinton and Vera Cairn, ministers of the Morden Pentecostal Church took Audrey, her sister, Heather and brother, Ray into their home.

July 29, 1947, she married Cornie Dyck.  They lived in Morden their entire married life. Music was an important part of her life; she played the piano and the accordion and sang in choirs.  Together, they enjoyed going to the midweek Bible studies.  Going for coffee with Cornie to the Dairy Queen, Chicken Chef or Norma’s place was a regular thing to do.  Somehow auction sales were an attraction, where they socialized and occasionally bought a few things.

Audrey loved cats and would feed any stray cats but not in the house that was hers.  But birds were a thing she did not appreciate; in fact, she had a fear of them.  But every time she saw birds sitting on a hydro line, she would say they are having church.  Gardening was not her hobby but she enjoyed canning and helping cut the lawn and do the trimming.  Audrey spent many hours crocheting afghans and other items.  In later years, she together with Cornie loved to peel, cut and freeze apples.  She never worked outside their home, but volunteered at various places, such as at the Morden Senior Centre, Morden Thrift Store and babysat for others.

She leaves to mourn her passing; 2 daughters, Norma and Bob Epp, Pam Banman and Carl Gordon; 8 grandchildren; 13 great grandchildren; sister, Heather and Peter Hoeppner of Winnipeg, brother, Ray and Ruth Cairns of Carstairs, AB and their families as well as 1 sister-in-law, Cornie’s sister, Nettie George of Cambridge, ON and her best friends Henry and Rita Bergen of Killarney.

She was predeceased by her husband, Cornie (2005) and 1 son-in-law, Gary Banman; her parents; and 1 brother, William in infancy.

Funeral service was held on Thursday, December 27, 2007 at Wiebe Funeral Chapel in Morden at 1:00 pm with Pastor Weldon Yeo officiating.  Interment followed at Hillside Cemetery in Morden.

The family would like to thank those who have supported them during this time.  A special thank you to Isaac and Dorothy Kroeker who so faithfully visited Audrey during the time she resided at the nursing home.  Thank you to Pastor Weldon, Pastor Dean, Wiebe Funeral Home and the Church family.
