Moorman (Hestness), Audrey (Ari)
Born in Minneapolis, MN on April 27, 1914 to Elias and Alma (Vaage) Hestness. Returned to her Creator on March 1, 2016 and reunited with Maurice, her husband of 64 years; son Tom; and son-in-law, Bob Cardinale. Survived by children, Shelly Ann Moorman (Kevin Sweeney), Kate Cardinale, and David (Barb Juntunen) Moorman. Audrey was known as "Ari" in her family - a nickname giver to her when her first grandchild Elizabeth struggled to pronounce "Audrey". Thus a new title accompanied her new duty as grandmother. Ari was the clear matriarch of a most American family - what she referred to as her own United Nations: among her 15 grand and 33 great-grandchildren are included White, Black, Latino, and Vietnamese, both immigrant and native-born. She wasn't a drinker ... except for that first sip of beer when you open a can. She wasn't a gambler ... though she spent plenty of time playing bridge. She wasn't an exerciser ... unless it was water aerobics class at the Y, followed by cookies in the locker room afterwards. She was a fierce defender of the English language - ever correcting "yeah" to "yes". She was a prolific writer and shared her talent with friends for many occasions. She was never one to mince her words- whether they be encouragement, love & praise ... or the occasional "You're going out in that?! Come share more stories about Ari as we honor and remember her life. Mass of Christian Burial on Saturday, April 2, 2016 at 11 am ~ Church of Christ the King, 5029 Zenith Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN with private interment at Sunset Memorial Park.
