Kittery - Roseann ( Nason ) Andrews died April 20, 2014 at her home surrounded by most of her immediate family.
She was the beloved mother of five children, 10 grandchildren, and 3 great-grandchildren.
Roseann was born in Madison, Maine to Joseph Persival "Tim" Nason and Elizabeth Jane "Bessie" (Hillman). She was one of five children and grew up in Madison.
During her years at Madison High School, she was involved in sports and other school clubs.
In 1952 she married Arthur Wilson Andrews, Jr. also of Madison. While Arthur was in the Air Force, they traveled to Colorado, Texas and Georgia and then to Orono, Maine. While Arthur attended the University of Maine, Roseann enjoyed working at the campus radio station. When Arthur began to work for Seaward Construction Co as V.P., they moved the family to Eliot, Maine. Shortly after, they settled in Kittery where they continued to raise their five children.
Roseann and "Andy" were active in the Cub and Boy Scouts for several years. Along with attending sports and other school events for her children and grandchildren, Roseann was an avid reader, enthusiastic gardener, bird watcher and distinguished cook. She is famous for her "dynamite" recipe and kept the cookie jar full with an inexhaustible supply of cookies.
She also enjoyed her time at the family camp in Embden, Maine. She was well loved and respected by all who knew her.
She is survived by her husband Arthur W. Andrews, and her children Judith E. Andrews, Stephanie Andrews, Lisa K. Hippern, Arthur W. Andrews, Jr. and Chris A. Andrews.
