LITTLE ROCK, Ark. - Andy Schaffer Peck's wish was for her family and friends to gather in a celebration of her life. While she just joined hands with the angels above on Feb. 17, 2008, her spirit, song and laughter will live long in the hearts of those who knew her well.
Andy, age 60, grew up in Hampton and graduated from Newport News High School in 1965. She attended Mt. Ida Junior College and the University of Miami, prior to a career as a travel agent for Warwick Travel. Andy was the daughter of Carolyn W. Schaffer and the late Robert H. Schaffer.
In 1989, Andy and her husband, Sid, daughter, Lindsay, and son, Bryan, embarked on a life's journey. New adventures included making homes in Jackson, Miss., Baton Rouge, La., Memphis, Tenn., and, most recently, Little Rock, Ark.
Come and join Andy's family as we celebrate this wonderful mom, wife, daughter and friend. Wear your brightest colors and be ready to share the memories of Andy's generous life at 7 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 20, at The Arbors at Port Warwick, 1100 William Styron Square South, Newport News, Va.

Sidney, Bryan and Lindsay and Mrs. Schaffer,

Bobby and I are truly sorry about your loss. Although we lost touch over the years, we loved Andy's laughter, kindness and sweet ways. Andy and Sidney were truly soulmates - how rate this is - not to mention a remarkable mom. Andy was truly a beautiful person inside and out and our hearts are sad when we think of what you are going through. We love you and are here for all of you at anytime.

We were so sorry to hear about Andy's passing. I remember her warm smile well. Sid also brought our family many years of happiness as our "Santa" every Christmas. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Dear, sweet Andy. Such a loving and generous soul.
Memories, memories...
...late 1960s: Spring Break in Ft. Lauderdale was where and when we first met. Andy and I later became roommates, first in the U of Miami dorms, then sharing an apartment on Tigertail Avenue in Coconut Grove, FL.
Andy was a bridesmaid in my wedding. Then, she met Sid. Ah, they were SO in love. I recall a meal with the four of us; it was difficult to swallow through the belly laughs.
Christmas cards were exchanged, along with our shared joys of motherhood - Andy's delight and pride in her family. Years passed, addresses changed, contact was lost. Always the intent to get back in touch...
Lynn, you have lost your little girl; Sid, you have lost your soulmate; Lyndsay and Bryan, you have lost your adoring mama. I grieve deeply for each of you. I, and countless others have lost a dear and gracious friend. May we all be comforted and inspired by our memories of Andy's laughter, warmth, generosity and, most importantly, her boundless love.

Andy was a very special person. I am sorry we lost touch with each other over the years, but I think of all of you often particularly when I look at the craft items that were gifts from Andy that I still cherish.An adorable pillow sits on my bed that was made for me by this beautiful lady many years ago. Love to you all.

Andy was one of the sweetest girls I ever met at NNHS. Although I have not seen her or Sidney since 1965, I am sure her sweetness and charm lasted throughout her life and was an influence on all those that surrounded her.

Andy and I were friends from back in our old Hampton neighborhood. Her daddy cooked me my first "steak" at one of Andy's birthday parties. My condolences to her family.

Sid, Lindsay and Bryan,
It saddens me to learn of Andy's passing. I haven't seen any of you since we all lived in Shore Park and had many evenings of the boys playing baseball, but smile when I do. Andy had such encouraging words after my back surgery and her smile always made the surroundings warm. My thoughts are with you.-
