Andrea Tate Pierce, 22, of Garfield, suddenly went to be with the Lord on Thursday, February 11, 2021, peacefully in her home in Bentonville, AR. She was blessed into this world on August 16th, 1998 by Sean Pierce and Tammy Tate at Saint Mary’s Hospital in Rogers, AR. Andrea was currently a hostess at the Village Inn in Bentonville and loved all of her co-workers like family. During her childhood, attended Garfield Elementary, Oakdale middle school, and Rogers Heritage High School. She spent most of her childhood happily out in the backwoods of Garfield, AR. She was a free-spirited and vibrant soul who fiercely sought out adventure wherever she could find it. She played clarinet in the marching band, was an avid member of Future Farmers of America, and was also on the high school golf team. She loved music, caring for animals, playing sports, going fishing, and of course, being an all-around country girl. She loved riding out on the dirt roads and getting into mischief and she definitely was a “people-person.” Toward the end of her life, her passion was taking care of her beautiful son and spending time with friends and family anytime she could. She loved to get dolled up and go out for nights on the town with her sister, mother, and girlfriends. She also loved spending time going out to eat at nice restaurants with her father and late grandfather. In her short life, Andrea learned the importance of family and living life to its fullest. She will be deeply missed by everyone that she touched but never forgotten. God has taken her to Heaven, and we will one day be reunited. She is survived by her parents, Sean Pierce of Salem, OR and Tammy Tate and Mike Cannady of Washburn, MO; her sister, Adrienne Pierce of OKC, OK; her grandmother, Sheila Palumbo of Springdale, AR; her grandparents, Buddy and Sharon Tate of Seligman, MO; her fiancé Trey Casteel of Rogers; by her son, Winston Ham; and by several aunts, uncles, and cousins. She is preceded in death by her grandmother, Linda Tate; her grandfather, Edward B. Pierce Jr.; and by several great-aunts and uncles. A celebration of life service will be held on Saturday, February 27th, 2021 at 2pm in Rollins Funeral Home Chapel.

I was Andrea’s 6th grade reading teacher at Oakdale. She always came to class with a smile on her face. She was a talker and bright light to many. She will be missed. So sorry she left this world to soon.

I remember me and Andrea always got in trouble it was either one or both of us. She shared a video I took one year me and her running the firework stand and I asked her
Me: why am I friends with you?
Her: because I like pickles!
Me: I thought u were awesome?
Her: I am awesome but pickles make it better!
I will never forget all the memories we have together all the good and bad times. I love you Andrea more than anything and will always check on your family and Winnie. Give heaven some hell till I get home. I love you more than anything in this world ❤️

Andrea was always full of energy. She was the good friend that would remember your favorite flavor of gum and make sure to get you a whole pack of it for your birthday. I still have the little red glass heart that she got me. I’ve kept it in my wallet for the past 13 years. We we’re playground buddies, piano lesson friends, and explorers of the woods. Climbing trees and building forts with Andrea were always the best. My heart aches for the family. She will be missed.

When Andy came to Village Inn, I had no idea how much love she would spread and the lives She would touch. She has SOOOO much heart. She used to put a line on hold to run out and carry a man's hurt dog in. She would sprint across the restaurant just to open the door for someone. I'm not sure anyone could love as much as her. I was lucky too have met Andy in my life time. I miss her stories, and her smile. She will be missed by so many. Rest in peace Andrea Pierce.
