Irene G.'s Story
Irene G. (Clark) Andrews, longtime resident of Wheatfield, passed away peacefully on Friday, June 23, 2017 after a brief battle with cancer. She was 82. She was born in Chippawa, Ontario, Canada on August 21, 1934, a daughter of the late Clarence and Ann (Brown) Clark.
She attended and graduated from school in Canada and then moved to New York when she married Roger W. Andrews on September 6, 1958. They remained happily married for almost 59 years until her passing.
Irene was a purchasing agent for Tam Ceramics for 40 years and after her retirement she enjoyed helping her son at his stores, Evans Ace Hardware. Irene volunteered at the food bank and enjoyed making up gift baskets to donate to a wide variety of charities. She also enjoyed shopping and going to antique and craft shows but her greatest joy was her time with her family, especially her grandchildren, Madison Grace and Morgan Elizabeth Andrews.
Mrs. Andrews is survived by her loving husband, Roger W. Andrews, Sr.; her son, Roger W. (Jennifer) Andrews, Jr.; her two granddaughters, Madison Grace Andrews and Morgan Elizabeth Andrews.
