This news is so heart breaking.  Frank and I met Andrea at Bryson Elementary many years ago.  She was a kind and lovely person.  I was looking forward to talking with her at the Reunion.  She fought a long hard battle with cancer and the fight is over - Rest in Peace Andy you will be missed by many people.

I was so sorry to hear of Andrea's passing.  She lived about 3 blocks from me, and I thought about her often as I would drive by her neighborhood.  I didn't know her well, but I'm sure she will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.  RIP Andrea.

We spent a lot of time together at Bryson.  I think we were in Camp Fire together, maybe even went to Camp Metaka the same summer. Emailed a few years ago through this site.  She was a quiet sweetie.

Very sad to hear of the passing of Andrea.  Tim and I were close to her family and her parents while at Bryson Elementary.  i think that she shared every class together from kindergarten thru 6th grado..  I remember that our Moms - Andrea, Tim and I, spent Easter Vacation at Desert Hot Ssprings.  Andrea was an only child  and here parents were very kind.  I remember that her Dad -Howard- and our Dad were close.  I believe that Howard was a machinist and woodworker - which our Dad aslo liked.  I don't think that she ever married.  We reconnectted after our 50th reunion and talked several times.  Lost tract of her again - - so sorry to her of her passing.

I didn't know Andrea until either junior high or high school.  We shared some classes and I remember laughing with her about silly things.  She had a great sense of humor and was fun to be with.  So sorry to learn of her passing.  She was a wonderful person.

Andi was my BFF since Kindergarten!    I think we shared more ups and downs in life together than most other two people.    We kept in touch after high school, and became a little jealouse when she became a very successful legal secretary.    We lost touch a couple of times over the years, but always found a way to re-connect.    Whenever that happened, we just picked up where we'd left off the last time we were together, as though time had been standing still.  She was an excellent tole-painter, and I saw one of her beautiful homes in which she'd painted beautiful murals on the walls.       She taught tole-painting, and loved working with other people who were interested in developing their talents.    I feel very honored to have a lovely table she painted, along with some knitted scarves she'd made.     In addition, she gave me the beautiful grandfather's clock her dad had made for her mom.    Even though it's never worked, I treasure it!     I can't believe she's gone, yet I know - and believe we all know - she's now in a better place.     I loved her dearly, and she'll always hold a special place in my heart.    Carol Cole (Griswold)
