  • As she ascended to Heaven, Mildred “Faye” Andrew, of Frederica, received her wings, on Saturday, October 19th, with her family by her side, from the Bayhealth-Kent General Hospital. She was 67. She was the daughter of the late James and Betty Beebe. Mrs. Andrew owned Faye’s Decorated Cakes for over seven years. Her special achievement was a 17-foot long “Shoo Shoo Baby”, a rebuilt airplane restoration cake for the celebration at the Air Museum-Dover Air Force Base. She was featured in several newspapers. In her later years, she was a shipping clerk for over 10 years at Green Brier Inc. Her best friend of 35 years was Kay Bird. They had amazing shopping trips to Vanity Fair, going twice a year, and went to Bingo every Sunday night since 1978. They shared a special friendship that was second to none. Faye devoted her life around her husband, children, and grandchildren. She was always available to lend a helping hand. She spent a considerable amount of time caring for Triston, a special needs grandson, and her most recent grandson, Derek. Her undying love for her family and sacrifices will always be cherished and remembered and she will be sadly missed. Faye was a member of Rocky Mountain Elk Foundation, as a committee member, who helped raise funds for wildlife land preservation. In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by her sister, Betty Jo Schauber. She is survived by her loving husband of 44 years, Edwin G. Andrew of Frederica; daughters and sons-in-law, Dawn C. Watkins of Milburn, OK, Angela N. Andrew-Webb of Frederica, Tammy L.

Andrew-Dubovick, Andrew Quiroz, Anthony Quiroz, Tanya Cutright, Jeffrey Cutrightand Steven Cutright.
