Judy J. “Mitzi” Andrew, age 77, of Bridgeport, left to be with our Lord Jesus Christ on Sunday evening, December 9, 2018, at United Hospital Center where she was surrounded by her loving and devoted family.

 

Born August 7, 1941, in Dawmont, WV, Mitzi was the daughter of the late Robert Barnes and Josephine Barberio Barnes.

 

Mitzi leaves behind two children whom she loved dearly, Pamela S. Riley and husband Phil and David E. Andrew II and his fiance’ Sarah Long and son Kolter.  Mitzi is also survived by two granddaughters whom she adored, Tabitha N. Riley and Whitney M. Chappell (Scott); greatgrandchildren Piper, Lucca and Sabbath; one sister, Rosella Matheny; four brothers, Robert Barnes, Jr. and wife Virginia, John Barnes and wife Deloris, Sam Barnes and wife Cathy, and Randy Barnes and wife Elizabeth; and two sisters-in-law, Sherry Barnes and Delores Andrew; along with several nieces, nephews, and cousins with whom she was very close.

 

Mitzi was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, David E. Andrew, along with a sister, Mary Barnes, a brother, James Barnes, brothers-in-law, John Matheny, Robert G. Andrew, and Gordon Hess and sisters-in law Jone Barnes and Janet A. Hess, and father and mother-in-law Glen and Lavene Andrew.

 

The apostle Mathew (6.21.2) said “In a word there are three things that last forever; Faith, Hope, and Love; But the greatest of these is Love.”  There is no better way to describe Mitzi’s life than this verse.  Faith was central to her life, Hope sprang eternal, and Love was her way of life.  Mitzi was many things to many people.  A mom, a daughter, a grandmother, a sister, a cousin and a friend.  To all, she Loved big.  Each and every day, in her words and in her deeds, she demonstrated clearly to those in her very large circle that she loved and cared for them.  She never met a stranger.  In fact, she would go out of her way to meet new people and soon they too found their way into her circle.

 

For those of us that were fortunate enough to be in her circle, she will be greatly missed and never forgotten.  We can be comforted, though, that through her Faith she has reached Heaven’s gates.  And, when she arrived, we believe God the Father welcomed her with the words, “well done my good and faithful servant.”  The world is a better place for having known Mitzi, and Heaven is now a better place for her presence.

 

Family and friends may call at the Amos Carvelli Funeral Home, 201 Edison Street, Nutter Fort, on Thursday from 1:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m.

 

The funeral service will be held at the Bridgeport United Methodist Church on Friday, December 14, 2018 at 10:30 a.m. with Reverend Dr. Ken Ramsey presiding.  Mrs. Andrew will lie in state one hour prior to the service.
