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.
