Joan B. Andes Ruther Glen, VA - Joan Benjamin Andes, loving family member and native and long-time resident of New York, died suddenly April 11, 2014. Mrs. Andes was born in Wappingers Falls, daughter of Robert W. and Vera Benjamin, and sister to Joyce Blom, Jackie Draiss and Robert Benjamin. After high school, Mrs. Andes joined her sister, Joyce, in attending nursing school at the former Vassar Bros. Hospital in Poughkeepsie. Mrs. Andes went on to earn her bachelor's degree in nursing from New York University, becoming the first member of her family to earn a four year degree. For several years, Mrs. Andes worked as a head nurse in obstetrics. She met James Stuart Andes in Puerto Rico, and the two were married in March 1962. They lived in Seattle, Washington and Birmingham, Michigan before returning to New York in 1973. Mrs. Andes left nursing to devote herself to motherhood. When her children started school, Mrs. Andes opened a bed and bath shop, Bright Start, and in 1977, the family purchased a farm in Cross River, N.Y. and kept horses and other animals. After retiring from retail, Mrs. Andes launched a third career as a real estate agent. Mrs. Andes was instrumental in the family's purchase of Brookhaven Cottages, a resort on New Hampshire's Spofford Lake. Mrs. Andes devouted herself to Brookhaven, where she met many friends, with whom she corresponded until the end. After opperating the cottages for several decades, the Andes sold Brookhaven and bought a summer home on Lake George, in the Adirondacks. At about that time, they also moved to Ruther Glen, Va. to be closer to their daughter, Jennifer V. Anderson. The Andes celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary in March 2012. Mr. Andes died suddenly three months later. Mrs. Andes enjoyed her remaining months with family and friends but never recovered from the loss of her husband and ensuing lonliness.
