She was an amazing wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and best friend. Andrea loved people, life, sandy beaches, long drives on country roads and motorcycles.
She was happiest in life helping others. Whether helping them get to school as a bus driver, or helping them learn after they arrived, as a paraprofessional.
She would offer encouraging and comforting words while sewing on a special patch or repairing a beloved leather garment during the many years we spent traveling the biker circuit!! She will be missed dearly.. Arrangements to be made at the convenience of the family. In lieu of flowers please consider planting a tree, or donating to an animal shelter of your choosing..
