Spaniard's Bay -
Ethel Florence Andrews
- We were genuinely sorry to hear last week of the passing of Florence, wife of Arthur Andrews, at her home in St. John's. She died on Tuesday, April 24.
We knew her best as Florence Barrett, the only child of Mr. and Mrs. Herbert Barrett of Spaniard's Bay, and one of our group who used to spend our spare afternoons in summer beside a pond in the care-free days of youth. Florence dearly loved the joy of living, and many happy hours we spent, as members of our group will recall, picnicking, boiling the kettle and cooking the pot at our favourite spot. When the days became shorter and the nights chilly, she was not the last to organize a house party so that the gang could get together. She was blessed with a pleasing personality and she had the rare sense to know when frivolities should end. She was the type of person one was glad to meet and to know.
Having finished her schooling, she worked for a time with H. W. Sheppard and Sons as clerk, and subsequently went to St. John's to work at Bowrings.
Her marriage to Arthur Andrews was blessed with two children, Bruce, who is now ten, and Suzanne, six; they are old enough to remember that theirs was a mommy as good as this world could afford. To her aged parents we offer sincere and heartfelt sympathy.
Her funeral was held on Thursday and burial was in the Anglican Cemetery on Forest Road.
May her soul, through the mercy of God, rest in peace.
