Obituary of Angela Andrews Nelson


Cotten Funeral Home

Angela Andrews Nelson passed away peacefully at home in New Bern, NC on August 9, 2021. Angie grew up and currently resided in New Bern and also previously lived in Beaufort, NC. She is survived by her children, Kendall and Jack Nelson, her mother, Barbara Andrews, two sisters, Christy and Jennifer Andrews, nieces, Sophia, Lela, and Ella Byrd and a great nephew, Sebastian Arkin. She is also survived by her aunts and uncle, Bonnie and Dan Hancock and Patricia Hancock. Angie is preceded in death by her father, Jimmy Andrews. Angie was a devoted mother who loved her children deeply and unconditionally. She wore many hats over the years from basketball coach, horseshow Mom, Sunday school teacher to the greatest cheerleader of all the children. Her favorite past times were laying in the sun with the sand between her toes and loving on her much beloved dogs. She was always grateful for all of the Lord’s blessings and kept her Faith in Him regardless of the challenges life presented. She was a friend to everyone she met and was generous with her time to help others. She loved to cook for her family and friends and even those she didn’t know that needed a little extra help. Her favorite saying was “Find the good in all things!” and she truly lived by that motto. Angie embraced life with a huge smile and laughter that will never be forgotten by all those who loved her. Her Memorial Service will be held at 2:00 PM on Thursday, August 12, 2021 at Garber United Methodist Church. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Colonial Capital Humane Society P. O.
