July 26, 1919 - July 16, 2013
Resident of San Jose
Our beloved mother, Lillian A. McAndrews, passed away at the age of 93, at home, on July 16, 2013 in San Jose, California surrounded by her family. Lillian was born in Winnipeg, Canada on July 26, 1919 to Barney and Anna Ebertowski. Raised in North Dakota, she met her husband Michael and they eventually settled in Seattle, WA. Lillian's husband Michael died in 1965 and she moved the family to San Jose, CA where she worked for 16 years in the Boys Department of the Emporium in the Almaden Fashion Plaza.
Lillian enjoyed playing solitaire, solving the crossword puzzle every morning and playing Progressive Rummy with her family. She also enjoyed music, dancing, playing Bingo at the Southside Senior Center, going on trips to Tahoe and above all, she loved to laugh.
Lillian is survived by her 8 children; Patricia Angulo of San Jose, Michael McAndrews of Seattle, Wa, Janet Hamilton of San Jose, Cathy (Keith) Sheller of Bellingham, Wa, Mark (Lisa) McAndrews of San Jose, Daniel McAndrews of San Jose, Tim (Leilani) McAndrews of San Jose, Martha (Jay) Rickard of San Jose, 17 grandchildren and 8 great-grand children.
Lillian will be forever missed by all who knew and loved her. Internment services will be private and a "Celebration of Life" will be held in the future. We would like to thank Hospice of the Valley for their kind support of our mother. In lieu of flowers please do something nice for an elderly person.
