Andrea was born on Oct. 15, 1960 to Robert “Tommy” Henson and Barbara Henson. This was a shared day of the year as her parents and brother, Brian Henson, celebrate respective wedding anniversaries on October 15th (1955) (1988). She grew up in Milford and graduated from Wawasee High school in 1980.
Andrea and her longtime partner Patricia Ann Miller were married on June 6, 2015. ‘Patty’ recently lost her year battle to stage four lung and kidney cancer on Feb. 23. Andrea was by her side through this difficult last year and was still mourning her loss.
She was known for her incredible personality which suited her hard working position as supervisor in various factories her entire adult life. Her most recent employers, Western Power sports, Ashley for the past 1.5 years and Guardian Industries, Ligonier for 17 years; but not withstand are other prior employers in Warsaw and Syracuse where she still is known. She loved to laugh. Her pets were a source of joy to her often to the chagrin of family and friends as they were fiercely loyal to her alone. She also enjoyed spending time with her friends crafting. Count yourself blessed if you have received these precious gifts of her love in form of handmade cards over the years. However, many know her as an avid softball player. The first girl to hit an over the fence homerun in Milford set the stage for years of continued enjoyment. She departed way too early. We will always hold a piece of her in our hearts.
Survivors include her brothers: Dave Henson, California, Bobby Henson, Milford; Brian (Sheila) Henson, Plainfield; Ed (Kitty) Miller, Kendallville; Bryan Miller, Fort Wayne; Phil and Jessi Miller, Ashley; her sister, Carla (Brent) Cavender, Leesburg; her sister-in-law, Vicki Herbert, Hamilton; her nephews: Chad (Stacey) Henson, Calif.; Chris, Milford; Travis, Goshen; Kyle, Milford; Justin and niece, Julia; Robbie, Kentucky.
