Dillman-Scott Funeral Home
Freda Mae Haworth Andry, Paoli, entered eternity to be with her Lord and Savior on November 10, 2021, after a decades long battle with Parkinson’s Disease.
She was born to the Late Bertha Lewis and Claude Haworth on July 12, 1939, in Paoli, Indiana. She was the third baby born in the old Clark Hospital located on East Main Street where she and her mother spent her first night. Her sisters, Elizabeth and Helen anxiously awaited her birth at home while assembling her new bassinet. She is a direct descendant of several American Revolutionary soldiers, including David S. Lewis, William Boyd, and Joshua Younger.
Freda lived the majority of her life at the family homestead East of Paoli. Her sisters began taking her to the First Baptist Church when she was six weeks old, where she was saved and baptized. She attended Paoli elementary and high schools; graduating ion 1957. She played trumpet in the band and was the FFA sweetheart. There, she met her husband, Willard M. Andry, and they married on June 8, 1957, and had two children, Brian, and Monica.
Freda was a loving mother and always involved in her children’s school activities and education. She was also a farmer, restaurant, hostess, administrative assistant, and a substitute teacher. She played the piano and organ in churches many years. She was of the Protestant Faith, a birthright member of the Quaker Church, and most recently attended the First United Pentecostal Church in Paoli. She was very close to her loving mother. When her mother was struck with a massive stroke, Freda never left her side and took complete care of her mother at her home while mothering two children. Freda was kind and compassionate and always willing to help others but was quick with humor and sarcasm. Her greatest joy was her grandchildren, Katy, David, and Adam, whom she spoiled as often as possible.
Freda moved in with her daughter, Monica and grandson, Adam in 2013. Many wonderful memories were made during this time. The two cared for her special needs as a Parkinson’s patient, along with Hospice at the end of her life.
She is survived by her husband, Willard Andry; her daughter, Monica Andry; and grandson, Adam Zayn Abounnaaim; and close, loyal friends, Brenda Hill and Brian Danner.
She was also survived by her son, Bryan, and Judge Debra Andry; granddaughter, Katy Ash, and husband Cody; and three great-grandchildren, Maryn, Calvin, and Dean Ash; and grandson, David Andry.
