Tiena Epp

1925 ~ 2022 (age 96)


Our mom, Tiena Epp, who loved Jesus and loved her family, passed peacefully into heaven on Wednesday June 8th, 2022.  As we began to say our farewells, our tears were mixed with rejoicing and praise as she leaves a legacy of faith and love which she passed on to her children; Elvina (Bob) Parker, Debra (Steve) Mowers, Valerie (Ron) Hellwig, Freddie (Rod) Gelleny, Alfred (Laura) Epp; her 14 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren.  Our hearts are filled with our memories - so many of them contain so much laughter - and we would like to thank everyone for their expressions of love, comfort and support during this time in our lives. 

Our family has chosen to honor our mom in a private service at a later date.  

Mom’s favorite verse; Romans 5:1-2 Therefore, since we have been justified through faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ, through whom we have gained access by faith into this grace in which we  now stand.


First Place ~ Adapted from the song by E. Inman

The first place I saw Jesus

Was in my mother’s eyes

The first time I heard Jesus

Was in her lullaby

Tenderly she cared for me with love and gentleness

The love of God she gave to me

And I know that I am blessed


Memories from childhood are often on my mind

Of special moments with my mom

Forever treasured time

The life she lived each day

Showed me Heaven’s way

She loved the Lord with all her heart

That’s why I can say

The first place I saw Jesus

Was in my mother’s eyes.  


Now we all have children of our very own

With sparkling eyes and a happy smile

I can’t believe they’ve grown

I pray to God the life I live

Will show to them the way

That they will love the Lord with all their heart

And one day they will say


The first time I felt Jesus

Was when I heard her pray

And I’m thankful for my mother

Who loved me everyday.
