Audrey Elaine Redepenning was born on May 27, 1943 to parents Gilbert and Roma Redepenning in Madison, Minnesota. She was confirmed at St. Paul’s Lutheran Church, Nassau, Minnesota on June 9, 1957. Audrey attended and graduated from Marietta High School in 1962.
Audrey was united in marriage on September 5, 1964 to John (Jack) Weir. To this union one son, John was born. She later moved to Willmar, Minnesota where she met Arnold Thelen. The two of them spent many years together and shared a son, Christopher. After Arnie’s death in April 2013, Audrey moved to the Madison Lutheran Home to be closer to her family.
In life, there was nothing more important to Audrey than her family and friends. She worked hard for many years until she was unable due to her health. Audrey enjoyed feeding the birds and squirrels that lived outside of her windows and loved to get out for a ride in the car. On a nice day, she and Arnie had several favorite places where they liked to go for coffee or a meal. They enjoyed traveling to different towns and would stop by to visit with family along the way. Audrey genuinely appreciated the kindness of others and enjoyed sharing stories and a good laugh with friends and family. Her smile and laughter will be missed.
Death came to Audrey on February 18, 2018 at the Madison Lutheran Home. She had reached the age of 74 years, 8 months and 21 days.
Left to mourn Audrey’s death are her children; John (Amy) Weir of Marietta, MN; Chris (Cheryl) Wehseler; grandchildren Karley, Alex, Clara, Elise and Colette; siblings Ellen Athey, of Ortonville, MN, Eileen (Herman) Haas of Madison, MN, Gary (Betty Jo) Redepenning of Madison, MN, Doug (Annette) of Milbank, SD, Gilbert (Cheryl) Redepenning of Montevideo, MN, and David (Patricia) Redepenning of Madison, MN and many nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents Gilbert and Roma Redepenning, brother Dennis Redepenning and special friend Arnold Thelen.
