Audrey Ann Hines was born on July 17, 1941 in Little Falls, MN to Stanley Hines and Rose (Knopik) Hines. On May 22, 1967 Audrey married Alexander Karpinski at Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church in Little Falls. After raising their children, Audrey and Alex moved to North Carolina to spend their retirement closer to their children. Audrey moved to Hollywood, FL in 2022.

Audrey enjoyed baking, knitting, roses, and being a mother. She loved visiting her children and seeing new places. One of her favorite places to visit was Grandfather Mountain in North Carolina. She faithfully prayed to St. Therese throughout her life and smiled whenever a rose unexpectedly appeared to let her know her prayers had been heard.

Left to cherish her memory are her daughters Amy Karpinski of Apex, NC and Ann Karpinski of Broomfield, CO; and son Alan Karpinski of Aventura, FL.

Audrey was preceded in death by her husband, Alexander; parents Stanley and Rose Hines; sisters Isabelle Karpinski, Esther LeBlanc, and Frances Hines; and infant brother John.

Audrey will be interred at the Minnesota State Veterans Cemetery in Little Falls next to her beloved husband.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that memorial contributions be made to The American Cancer Society, The Society of the Little Flower, or a charity of the donor’s choice.
