One of the nicest people you would ever meet!  So sad to lose her.

I am so sad to learn of Andra's
passing. She was truly a kind,
gentle soul and a good friend.
I will always remember our families
going down to Islamorada, Florida in December
and playing in the Keys together. We shared
Some wonderful times there.
My condolences to the Winkelman family.

Andra and I were sorority sisters in AEPHI at MSU. She was a very unique person. She was always smiling and laughing.  She was warm and kind and loved to be a part of the group. She was always willing to lend a hand. Through the years when we would see each other she remained the same warm loving woman. She loved her children and family and was involved in a multitude of activities.  I extend my sympathies to her family. May her memory be for a blessing. RIP dear Andra.

I'm so sad to hear the news about Andra. I only knew her from Mumford and from seeing her at all the reunions. She was so kind, gentle, non judgmental and all loving. Her loss so touches my heart and for now makes it hurt. I hope she moved on without any pain or suffering and I send my heartfelt condolences to her family and to all of us that knew and loved her.

Andra lived around the block from me, so we would walk to school together when we went to Vandenberg.

So sorry to hear of her passing. Janet Faitler.

Andra and I shared a birthday.  She would always call me to wish me a Happy  Birthday!  Whenever she came to Phoenix we would see each other.  I am so sorry to hear about this loss.  She was such a caring, sweet, thoughtful person.  My condolences to her family.  She will be truly missed.

Andra sat in the front row in our small, summer English literature class, and I remember her sometimes sharing a little back-and-forth with our teacher, Manuel Simon.  She showed ease in her interactions.  I don't think I realized her name was Andra and not Andrea, until I wrote to her on our Mumford site in 2013 to extend a birthday greeting.  Andra as a girl's name is Old English and means "noble strength."
Remembering Andra in rhyme:  Walking partway with a classmate on my street to Bagley School (and doing it more than once or twice)--felt natural and nice and "neat."  Being a kid in Bagley School was cool.  My classmate was cool as a grown-up too, and from what I read today,  Andra lived her life in a rich, rewarding way.  Her having been named Andra seemed less routine--than if she'd been named Andrea or Irene.  As a little girl, she had long, dark curls, and it was keen--to spot her when she came upon the scene and we proceeded to our destination.  Of friends she had an ample ration--from what I read.  Andra was a special gal indeed.
