They moved to Fernie, BC and then later to Lethbridge. They raised their two children in Picture Butte, where Audrey was an avid golfer and homemaker. Audrey and Vern enjoyed curling, camping and fishing and for several years, spent a lot of time at their cabin in Edwards Lake, BC. When they retired, they moved to Parkbridge Estates, and when Vern passed away, Audrey moved to Black Rock Terrace in Lethbridge, where she was a resident for the last six years.

Don and Gwen want to thank her niece Karen Row, who was so caring and giving of her time, love and compassion through the past six years. Also, thank you to the staff of Black Rock Terrace.

Audrey’s wishes were to be cremated and ashes spread with Vernon’s.

TANESHA GRACE DIETRICH

Tanesha passed away on 18 June 2020, aged 28.

Tanesha was born in Lethbridge, Alberta, on 9 June 1992, a Tuesday, and was (for the most part) truly Tuesday’s child, exhibiting grace both in her name and her many passions (though not so much in her eating habits).

Tanesha was a lover of art, music, dancing, and people, and brought laughter, joy, and compassion to her many friends and family, and never used her black belt in Taekwondo in anger (or never admitted having done so).

Tanesha lived in Canada, the US, and Australia and leaves behind family and friends in each country who are as devastated by her loss as they are grateful for the 28 years she graced our lives.

We love you T. xx

A Celebration of Tanesha’s Life will take place at 1:30 PM, Saturday, June 27, 2020 at CORNERSTONE FUNERAL HOME, 2825 – 32 St. S, Lethbridge, Alberta.
