Andrews and her late husband, Sam, moved to Summerland in 1966, along with their youngest son Neil. She was active with the Summerland United Church and still enjoys visits from members of the congregation.

She is always ready for a crib game and is looking forward to warmer weather so she can spend time on the patio watching the birds and the flowers bloom.
