Born and raised in Waterloo, Nebraska, Frances Andrews graduated high school with a class of 12, and earned a B. A. in English from Oberlin College.

She is survived by, son, Peter, daughter, Pat, grandchildren, Lisa, Patricia and Tom, great grandchildren, Danielle, Jennifer, Stephanie, and great-great grandchildren, Faustino and Maribel. Family members Robert, Gisela and Jose.
