Nancy worked at the Wheel Inn for many years, known for her cinnamon rolls, macaroni and cheese, and Baklava. She was well known for being a wonderful cook and baker; always willing to contribute food to her community when it was needed. Nancy always had a glass half full attitude, could see the silver lining in any situation and reminded us to be thankful for what we have. She enjoyed reading, "supporting" QVC, watching the Detroit Tigers & U of M football (Go Blue!), and her cats. She loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. She was a member of the Maple Rapids United Methodist Church and the United Methodist Women.
She is survived by 5 sons: Mark Andrews of Houston, TX, Marlin Andrews of Grand Blanc, MI, Matthew Andrews of Muskegon, MI, Michael and Tiffanie Andrews of Perrinton, MI, Mitchell and Danell Andrews of Perrinton, MI; grandchildren: Heather and Jason Werlinger, Kodie and Betsy Hall, Eric and Jarrae Arrington, Thomas Arrington, Matthew Arrington, Carl Harbinski, Austin Pierce, Ashlee Andrews, Zachary Andrews and Sydney Andrews; 12 great grandchildren; and her beloved cats: Carmal and Molly. She is also survived by her twin brother Nelson Rumsey of Perrinton, MI, sister Mary Andrews of Perrinton, MI, brother Loren and Ruth Rumsey of Bradenton, FL, and sister Donna and Max Loudenbeck of St. Johns, MI. She was preceded in death by her parents, husband Richard "Dick" Andrews, daughter-in-law Angela Andrews, and sisters: Eulah Blemaster and Ruth Wesner.
