1942 ~ AUDREY AMMANN ~ 2017


With great sadness we announce the passing of Audrey Ammann, wife, mother, grandmother and friend on Monday, August 21, 2017 at the age of 75 years. Audrey is survived by her husband of 56 years, Fred Ammann, loyal sons Darren (Sarah) and Todd (Elisha). She was known as the “World’s Best Grandma” to Tanner, Tyler, Grace and Emily. Audrey is also survived by her loving sisters Janice (James) Austin and Ethel and their families. Extended family and many friends will also miss Audrey’s smile. Born in Medicine Hat, AB on January 15, 1942 to Otto and Frieda Reuer, Audrey grew up in both Medicine Hat and the family farm in Alliance, AB. Audrey enjoyed her childhood on the farm with her sisters Janice and Ethel and their weekly trips to town for the movie theatre and, as they became teens, to Saturday night dances. Audrey moved back to Medicine Hat to attend college, during which time she was introduced to Freddie Ammann. She immediately fell in love with his “Elvis style” hair and charm and in 1961 they were married. In 1963 they welcomed their first son Darren. Audrey loved being a mother and savored every moment. Later they moved to Stettler, Alberta, where they welcomed their second son Todd. Audrey dotted after her children and was always cooking their favorite dishes for them, right until the last months of her life. After a move back to Medicine Hat in 1970 Audrey and Fred invested in and managed a new hotel, the Travelodge. Hotel life was busy but they took pride in their work and made many lasting friendships along the way. The arrival of grandsons Tanner and Tyler brought a new focus to Audrey’s life as becoming a Grandmother was one of her greatest joys. During retirement Audrey and Fred continued traveling all over the world…warm weather was always Audrey’s favorite destination, Hawaii especially. When granddaughters Grace and Emily arrived Audrey relished in spoiling her little girls, whether it was with fancy dresses or ice cream, Grandma would never say no. Audrey was always generous to those she knew and loved. Happy to share her love of cooking of kuchen, strudel, cabbage rolls or homemade pickles, everyone always enjoyed a meal at Audrey and Fred’s home. Her infectious laughter, determination and warm hugs will be sadly missed by all of her family and friends. The Funeral Service will be held at MEDICINE HAT EXHIBITION AND STAMPEDE GROUNDS, AUDITORIUM, 2055 – 21 Avenue SE, on Monday, August 28th, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. with Pastor Bob Findley officiating.
