Andy was born in High Point, NC on September 6, 1925 to Lemuel Chesley and Alma Louise Andrews.

Andy lived her life with a resolute faith in God, selfless devotion to family a good sense of humor. She has now gone to be with God as a very loving and caring person who loved animals, crafts, music, and who enjoyed collecting dolls. She had many friends in her life and was loved by all and touched many lives with her grace and compassion.
