Irene Andrews

Irene Andrews (nee Bennett), 66, of Avon Lake, Ohio, formerly of Fairmont, passed away after a short battle with cancer, Friday (Feb. 14, 2014) at the Ames Family Hospice House, Westlake, Ohio.

Irene was born Oct. 10, 1947, in Fairmont, and had lived in Avon Lake for 45 years.

She was a 1965 graduate of Fairmont High School.

Irene was a homemaker, but worked for a time at Kay and JB Robinson Jewelers. Her true passion was caring for others, especially her grandchildren. She loved to spend time with them, hosting sleepovers and playing board games. There were always activities planned when they visited. Irene was described as an excellent cook, with stuffed cabbage as one of her specialties. It was not uncommon for Irene to involve the grandchildren in whatever she was cooking.

Irene is survived by children, Donald R. Andrews III (Deanna) of Elyria, and Kelly M. Stiles (Christopher); and those special grandchildren, Tyler, Maddie and Max. She is also survived by six sisters and a brother.

She is preceded in death by her husband of 42 years, Donald R. Jr.; parents, Francis Jacob and Edna (nee Fetty) Bennett; and a sister.

Friends may call at the Busch Funeral Home, 163 Avon-Belden Road, Avon Lake, Ohio, on Monday from 5:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m.. The memorial service will follow at the funeral home at 7:30 p.m. Pastor Scott Patterson will officiate. Interment will be private at Resthaven Memory Gardens, Avon.

Memorial contributions may be forwarded to Avon Lake United Church of Christ, 32801 Electric Blvd., Avon Lake, OH 44012.
