We Remember

Kroschinsky, Audrey

January 1, 1970 — January 1, 1970

Audrey Kroschinsky (nee Roe), 74, of Kelowna B.C. peacefully went to be with the Lord on October 15, 2013 with her loving family by her side after a brief and courageous battle with cancer. Born December 19, 1938 in Neepawa, Manitoba she was the 5th child of the late Harold and Eva Roe.


She will be deeply missed by her loving husband of 54 years, Jerry, her daughter Dianne, son-in-law Greg, son Kevin and his wife Terri, grandsons Neil and Ian, step grandchildren A.J. (Jordan), Jaimie, Ryan, Brandon, great grandchildren Jakob and Zakary, brothers Richard (Lillian) and Ron (Judy), sisters Ella, and Irene (Harvey), brothers-in-law and sisters-in law Alma (Jeff), Leona (Paul), Rob (Trudy), Mick (Trish), Don (Ina), Dave (Brenda), Marlaine (Harold), Dolly, and numerous nieces and nephews who she loved dearly.


She is sadly predeceased by her parents, Harold and Eva, father and mother-in-law Joe and Elizabeth, brothers-in-law Ernie, Lad, Jack, and sister-in-law Lorraine.


Audrey enjoyed a 35 year banking career and in retirement loved wintering with Jerry in Yuma, Arizona. She was very playful, active and well known in park activities including shuffleboard, cards, dancing, hosting pancake breakfasts, the odd glass of wine, and delighted in her many many snowbird friends.

I send warmest condolences to all the family at this time, when u must feel so very sad to lose Audrey. I send u all a big hug.

  • Susanne Bell says:

    So sad to hear of Audrey’s passing. I was the Manager at TD Plaza 33 when Audrey worked there as a part time teller. She was awesome at her job ! The customers loved her because she remembered them by name and always took the time to chat with them. Micky ( the admistration officer ) and I loved her because when we had staff shortages we could phone up Audrey and she would rarely not come in – – saved us countless times !! She was an inspiration to the whole staff – her work ethic and sales skills were amazing – – and she always balanced to boot !! After we both retired Audrey became my friend and we enjoyed many visits and coffees together. She touched many lives in a positive way and she will be missed. Sadly, she died too young ! My heart goes out to you, Jerry, and the family. Please know she was loved.

  • Linda West (Hong) says:

    Very sad to hear of Audrey’s passing. I rember her giving me car rides to school when Dianne broke her arm skiing, and our camp outs at Marie lake. And the rides to our soccer games. She will be missed. All the great memories in Cold Lake.

  • Darlene Kastner (formerly Gruber) says:

    Uncle Jerry,
    I am so very sorry to hear of your loss. I was recently in touch with Aunty Audrey on Facebook and hoped to see her in Calgary, we had talked about getting together at some point when she was here. I will always remember her for her warmth, kindness and laughter. She was a very special lady and she (and you) made a remarkable impression on me during my younger years. Thoughts and prayers go out to you, Dianne and Kevin.

  • JoanThomas says:

    Sorry to hear about Audrey she was a lovely person and always had a smile for everyone and the best customer service ever.
