Elizabeth Andrews

June 14, 1935 — July 2, 2024

On July 2, 2024, Mrs. Elizabeth Jane Andrews of 921 Floyd St. Apt 4, Lynchburg, Virginia, affectionately known as “Janie Boo”, was called home to be with her Heavenly Father. 

 She was born on June 14, 1935, in Agricola, Virginia. She was the daughter of the late Archie Dawson Sr. and Bessie Burks.

 Elizabeth was educated through the schools of Amherst County. She attended the First Timothy Baptist Church in Madison Heights, Virginia, Rte. 130. Elizabeth met Adam Andrews, Sr. (Black Puerto Rican) and married him for 41 fruitful years on October 8, 1960. She worked as a teacher’s aide at Head Start in Lynchburg, Virginia, and as a Housekeeper at Holiday Inn in Lynchburg, Virginia for several years. Jane devoted her life to her 10 children whom she loved dearly. She made a home where love flourished daily. She was the homemaker and provided everything needed for them without lack. For that, we say to you “Mommy Dearest, your love will never go unnoticed.”

In addition, she leaves to cherish, (1) sister, Juanita Wilson (Willie, preceded) and (1) brother, Archie Dawson, Jr. (Joanne), all of Columbus, Ohio.
