Audrey O. Knapp passed away on April 24, 2020 at Brookside Manor in Hood River, Oregon. Audrey was born on May 3, 1931 in Honolulu, Hawaii to Lawrence and Puna Dang. She was raised there and at Huelo, Maui with her grandparents and was always surrounded by her ohana (family) including many aunts, uncles and cousins.
After high school Audrey moved to New York City and worked for United Airlines before moving to San Francisco where she was introduced to a Navy seaman, Arthur Knapp, by her cousin Charlie Kiakona and they married in 1958. The Navy moved the young family, including daughters Sharon and Charlotte and son Jake, around every year or two until they settled in the Bay Area for five years, then finally in Hood River in 1974. Audrey resided in Pine Grove for 31 years until 2005 when she moved to Down Manor, then to Brookside Manor.

Audrey retired from working as a teacher’s aide at Hood River Middle School in about 1995, and in retirement spent time with her family, doing quilting and needlework, traveling, hiking, gardening and reading. Her grandchildren were her greatest joy in life, and she loved music and going to see musicals. She is known for her handmade Hawaiian quilts that she learned to make from her grandmother and which she shared generously with her family.

In addition to her parents, sister, and ex-husband Arthur, she is predeceased by her son Jake Knapp. She is survived by her daughters: Sharon (William) Queen, Charlotte (Albert) Gosiak and, grandchildren: Sarah (Kelly) Queen-Foster, Jason (Andrea) Queen, Aaron (Kimberly) Gosiak, and Alec Gosiak, and great-grandchildren: Alivia and Adelaide Queen, Jake Foster, and Henry Gosiak.
The family wishes to thank the caring and outstanding staff at both Brookside Manor and Providence Hospice of the Gorge.

Private graveside services will take place at a later date. Arrangements are under the direction of Anderson's Tribute Center (Funerals • Receptions • Cremations) 1401 Belmont Avenue, Hood River, Oregon 97031. Visit to leave a note of condolence for the family.

My condolences to all of you. I remember Audrey (Mrs. Knapp, to me) always being so kind and patient when I was over to visit. Charlotte, my prayers are with you and your family at this time. Goodbyes are never easy - may you experience laughter, fond memories, and joy mixed with the tears. A life well lived!

Aloha Knapp ʻOhana,

I have such fond and wonderful memories of Aunty Audrey. Her stained glass hangs in my house. She had a wonderful sense of humor, and could give as good as she got from my Dad, Uncle Dale. She had a contagious smile. Alzheimer's is such a hard road, and I am glad she is at peace. I know my brothers and sisters and I remember her with love and deep affection. All our aloha to your 'ohana at this diffucult time.

Aloha no - Maile Alau, Jason Teaney, and Niho Bennett
