Obituary of Andrea Jeanne Kish

Andrea Jeanne Kish was born on June 30, 1944. A self-described Army brat lived all over including Washington, Arkansas, Paris, Kansas, Los Angeles, Pennsylvania and Hawaii. Andrea met Bill at St. Bernard High School in Los Angeles and let him pursue her; proposing several times until they were married on December 26, 1964. Through trials and tribulations, a faithful marriage and a once in a lifetime love produced three children (Steve, Jeanne and Ken) and seven grandchildren (Nathan, Justin, Andrew, Jessica, Dylan, Ryan and Megan). Known as Andie to many that were close, she was known for being someone who was gentle, loving and soft-spoken. But when she spoke, people listened. We all would go to her for advice. She was always the voice of reason; our always loving, and true North Star. Andrea loved sewing, cooking, playing the piano, singing with Voices of the Canyons, travelling and above all reading. Mom took pride in sewing baby blankets for all of her grandchildren and many of her nieces and nephews. She enjoyed travelling with her family several times to Alaska, Scotland; and to Greece, Italy, and Panama. Working for the L.A. County Library system seemed like a perfect match for Andie. She was there for 32 years, ending her career as the Assistant Regional Library Manager for Los Angeles. She instilled a love of books and reading with all of her children, grandchildren and hundreds of people she came in contact with every day. We will all miss her terribly, but Andrea's suffering is at an end. There is no more pain. She is rejoicing with the Lord. Hallelujah. Hallelujah.
