The matriarch of the Andrade family left this earth on March 17, 2019.
Rosario Pastora Andrade was many things, above all she was kind and generous. She always gave of what she had to those in need. Wether it was respite from a hard week’s work, gloves and hat to the kid that didn’t have any, or love and attention when it was hard to come by. She was admired and loved by everyone she came in contact with.
Rosario was also a pioneer, leading her family of two brothers out of a life in an orphanage in La Paz, Bolivia (South America) to make new lives for themselves and their children to come.
Her friends and family that have known and loved her for years are deeply saddened by her loss. ALL of the staff at the nursing home where she lived in her last months and the nurses at the hospital where she lived her last few days, had tears in their eyes at the news of her passing.
Loved ones who will miss Rosario until they meet again are her son Julio Andrade; her grandchildren Aoife Rose Andrade and Rowan Edward Andrade, and their mother Maggie O’Connor. Her brother Demetrio Andrade and sister-in-law Maria Elena Andrade. Her brother Julio Gutierrez. Her nephews Freddy Andrade his wife Carmen Andrade, Augusto Andrade, Julio A. Andrade and his wife Julia Andrade, Mario Andrade and Alex Gutierrez. Her niece Dana Stebbins-Morgan and spouse Leslie Morgan. All of the children of these nephews and her niece.
