Andrea Cosima Yardich, of Melbourne, passed away Monday, August 30, 2021. She was expected to live forever we thought but sadly at 61 years young, God decided to relieve her of her struggle as she put up a good fight against Covid 19 and its harsh effects.

She was a free spirit with an infectious soul. Born and raised as a child in Karlsruhe, Germany, she became the popular and highly loved singer/artist, Maggie Mae and later moved to Florida where she began her life as a wife and a mother. She had three daughters from her first marriage and later remarried after stealing the heart of a man with her charm. With him, she gave birth to her first son.

Andrea was a loving, wild, happy mother, wife, and woman that took the world in the palm of her hands and lived like no other. When life got busy, Andrea always knew how to bring her family together with just one text..."I made my roast and noodles," and not a person in the world could turn down her roast! She gave everyone hugs and made sure they were taken care of. If she had it, she would give it! You couldn't leave her house without a bag of miscellaneous things she'd gathered just in case you needed them; who didn't need mixed baggie of snacks, mail from 3 years ago, and that toy or knick knack for her grandkids we tried throwing out on so many occasions! She never minded what others thought of her or her quirky sense of style; it was her own and she rocked it like nobody else! Her beautiful smile and crystal blue eyes captivated hearts everywhere she went. She was the laugh out loud, sing at the top of her lungs, and dance to music (even when none was playing) kind of woman.

Her legacy will live forever through the memories she made with so many. She leaves behind her love and husband of 32 years, Michael Yardich, three daughters, Candita Trammel, Samantha Trammel, and Cassandra Trammel, a son Michael Yardich, granddaughters Alyccia Madden and Kearstin Krabill, grandson Austin Rubel, and sister Nicole Schlosser.

The world won't be the same without her but she left behind such love in our hearts that she will never be forgotten. We will miss her dearly.

She was full of spunk and a great fun, loving lady. She always made me feel welcome in her home and she was a great second mom to my son. My deepest condolences and love to everyone.

What shocking and sad news of the untimely and completely unnecessary death of my own Maggie Mae, as I've known her since the early 1970s. I was one of her first fans and ran one of her fan clubs back in the day. I just loved her utterly. I understand each single word in the obituary, and I know each single word is true. That's exactly the image I always had of her, although I never met her: a big hearted, warm hearted person.
My thoughts and prayers with the whole family. How utterly sad.

P.S. If you want to see her bubbling and cheerful energy, search her out on youtube. Her hit-song was "My Boy Lollipop".

Andrea was an amazing person. She loved to help anyone and everyone that ever was blessed to know her. She would always rescue animals and people too. She had a heart bigger than all of the outdoors. I will always remember her as that caring, giving, loving person. May God wrap his arms around her family and give them comfort in knowing they were so very blessed to have her in their lives.

I am incredibly sad about this bad news. I was and am a fan from the very beginning. She was just an exceptional talent. I was very fortunate to meet Andrea / Maggie in person a few times and to get to know them. She was such a warm and loving crazy person, you just had to like her. I've always hoped for a comeback and followed her life on Facebook. Thank goodness there are so many memories of Andrea / Maggie. I actually still found all the records, newspaper reports and TV appearances on DVD with me. It was nice to see everything again. Apparently she had a really nice life in the US with her lovely husband Mike and the kids. That gives some consolation. She had to leave way too early. I wish the family, the friends and especially their dear husband Mike a lot of strength and strength. My condolences to Volker Gonsch from Germany

I have been friends with her daughter Cassandra for a very very long time. I was a kid myself when we met. She always had pizza rolls in the freezer when we showed up to swim or hang out with all the kids in the neighborhood. She would always be silly and goofy with us. She was so interested in everything going on and what we were up too (usually some kind of trouble) and she knew it. She never minded though she always loved and embraced everyone for who they were when you walked through her door. She is a light that will be missed forever. Rest Easy!

Here in Germany we know her as "Maggie Mae", an artist who
brought us joy and happiness with her songs. R.I.P.

She was my German Janis Joplin - she was independent in her dress and dance style and her happy manner spontaneously carried us away. She was furthermore born in Karlsruhe and I live in a Karlsruher Straße (Street of Karlsruhe) in Baden (Southwest region of Germany).
Heartfelt greetings to all her dear ones and all her mourning fans!
