It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our wonderful mother, grandmother and sister, Audrey on Monday, March 31, 2014 in Roseburg, Oregon, at the age of 84. She was born on July 9, 1929, in Sioux Falls, SD, to Selmer and Mabel Kittleson. In 1954 Audrey married Frederic Watson Harrington. Audrey, Fred and their six children moved to Oregon in 1965. Together they raised their family in the Roseburg area until Fred’s untimely death in 1983. Audrey, a practicing RN since 1949, continued working full-time at the VA. In 1985 Glenn and Audrey found much in common and married. Beginning a near 20 year marriage, with Audrey’s six children and Glenn’s five children all grown and on their own, they were off to explore the world. They did just that, Glenn passed away January 27, 2005. Audrey carried on with grace and a thankful heart for Glenn’s love, enjoying her children and grandchildren, as well as serving others. She was an active member of the Roseburg Alliance Church where she faithfully served in many ministries, Bible studies, as well as any needs presented, knitting caps for cancer patients and everyone else who desired one; she volunteered with the local Red Cross as well as Mercy Hospital in Pastoral Care, and at the Day Surgery Dept. Audrey felt a deep calling to help others who were hurting. She is survived by her loving children Mark (Stacy) Harrington, Marianne (Mike) Vernia, Eric (April) Harrington, Lynette (Mike) Butler, Kirk (Rosa) Harrington, Kelly (Melinda) Ellis; step children Brad (Susie), Dana (Ann) , Lewis (Karrie) Baughman; Christine (Gordon) Cottrell, Jennie (Steve) Seefeld; grandchildren: Joseph and Audrey Nelson, Sarah and Samuel Harrington, Esten and Skyler Harrington, Dustin and Daniella Harrington, and numerous step grandchildren and great-grandchildren; brother: Robert (Gladys) Kittleson and several nieces and nephews. Audrey is also preceded in death by her daughter, Janis Nelson. A Celebration of Life Service will be held on Sunday, April 6, 2014, at 3 p.m. at Roseburg Alliance Church, 2165 NW Garden Valley Rd., Roseburg. A reception for family and friends to follow.
