She began as a cook and later become a house director “Mom.” She felt blessed to be in the midst of and house mother to so many young men. Having no children, she often referred to them as her “boys.” She served as president of I.U.

Andy is survived by her brother, Chris (Kay) Bradley; two nephews, Randy (Susie) Bartlett and Adam Earl (Ginger Nikirk) Bradley; two nieces, Vicki Ann (Jerry) Smith and Christy Renee Bradley. She is also survived by many “tremendous” great-nieces and nephews.
