Andrea Carol (Watrous) Funk

May 31, 1965 ~ May 14, 2017 (age 51)

COLCHESTER -  Andrea Carol (Watrous) Funk was born on May 31st, 1965 in Myrtle Beach, SC. On Mother’s Day, May 14th 2017, Andrea went home to the Lord after a brave and graceful battle with breast cancer. Let it be known our Andy is victorious as the power of positivity always prevails. She lived her life without restraint, driven by love and kindness, embracing and sharing raw emotion as a gift from her heart and soul. Andrea carried out her calling as a special education preschool teacher with joy, intelligence, and a natural ability to guide those who need it most of all. Her truest love was her family and friends, giving herself to us wholly and fantastically. Left to find Andy in the warmth of the sunshine, the dancing twinkle of the ocean, the unstoppable laughter of a child, or the quiet intimate calm of a cherished book are the following loved ones: her beloved Lloyd Bishel; her children and grandson, Chelsea (and fiancé, Chris), Troy, and Austin Funk; her parents, Margaret and Palmer; her brother, sister-in-law, nephew and niece, Neal, Chrissy, Liam, and Claire; many cherished friends and numerous extended family throughout the world.  The family will receive guests from 11 am – 1 pm Saturday (May 27th) at the Aurora-McCarthy Funeral Home, 167 Old Hartford Road, Colchester.  A Celebration of her Life will follow at Harkness Memorial State Park, 275 Great Neck Road, Waterford from 3 pm on.  In lieu of flowers, donations in her memory may be made to Autism Speaks,1 East 33rd St., 4th Fl., New York, NY 10016.   (www.autismspeaks.org)
