Dorothy Irene Edwards Koepnick
Born: August 24, 1927 in Corvallis, Oregon
Died: January 21, 2013 in Twin Falls, Idaho
Age: 85 years old
Dorothy was born Aug. 24, 1927, in Corvallis, Ore., the second child of Albert and Mabel Hill Hansen. Five children were born during her marriage to Ted Edwards: Sharyn, Teddy, Jimmy, Timmy and Michele. When Dorothy joined Jim Koepnick, her family grew and she loved Jim’s family as she did her own. Dorothy loved to cook, travel, mine for gold and enjoyed visiting with family and friends. Dorothy was a beautiful, loving wife, mother and grandmother. She will be remembered for her strength, determination, her spark and her lemon meringue pie.
She was preceded in death by her parents; her sons, Timmy and Jimmy; brothers, Norman and Duane; as well as her grandson, Russell. She is survived by her husband, Jim Koepnick; his children and grandchildren; her daughters, Sharyn (Larry) Young, Teddy Flint and Michele (Steve) Buckley; several grandchildren and great-grandchildren; as well as her sisters, Lea Sidel and Donna Sherrill; and her brother, David Hansen.
To honor Dorothy’s wishes, no service will be held. Instead, family will gather to remember her and invite friends to share with us as we celebrate our memories of Dorothy from 1 to 4 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 26, at her home, 3616 Mount Olympus Way in Twin Falls.
Arrangements are under the direction of Trent Stimpson and staff at Reynolds Funeral Chapel in Twin Falls.
