Sippel, Audrey Elaine
Passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 17, 2022 at GRH Freeport Palliative Care, Kitchener at the age of 93. Loving mother of Luanne (Brian) Gingerich, Donna (Jim) Moore, and Richard Sippel. Grandmother to Kevin (Karen) Gingerich, Michael (Lauren) Gingerich, Jeff (Jen) Gingerich, Jonathan (Erin) Moore, and Karen Moore. G.G. to Faith, Katelyn, Leigha, and Rachel Gingerich. She will be missed by brother-in-law Bill Quirk, nieces, nephews, and their families. Audrey is now reunited with her beloved husband Eldon Sippel (1989). She was predeceased by her parents Norman and Florence Demerling, her brother Jim (Edna), her sister Sharon Quirk, and dear companion Walter Hagarty. Audrey was the ultimate Blue Jays and Elvis fan. She was a talented seamstress and in her later years an avid knitter and quilter. Audrey spent many years as head of Admissions for the Elmira Raceway and was known for her keen sense of humor and wit. Following Audrey’s wishes, cremation has taken place and a private family celebration will follow. As expressions of sympathy, donations to the Grand River Hospital Foundation or the charity of your choice would be appreciated and can be made through the Dreisinger Funeral Home, Elmira.
