Passed peacefully away at home on July 2, Joan Andrews, in her 92nd year, under the loving care of her large devoted family.

Dorothy Joan Andrews (nee Snow) was born to Ethel (nee Gilbert) and Victor Snow on July 28, 1928.  She grew up on the streets of old St. John’s in a family of limited means but lots of love.  She attended Centenary Hall, winding through the hills and alleyways with her older sister and best friend Louise.  Joan’s childhood included picnics in Bowring Park, train rides to Ocean Pond, and attending Girl Guides with Louise in uniforms hand made by their sister Annie from dyed flour bags.  Joan was lucky in life and love as she once survived a sliding trip down Springdale Street that finished with Joan passing through the legs of a horse standing at the bottom of the hill.  Joan excelled in school, winning several awards, finishing grade 11 at Curtis Academy.  She later went on to graduate from the General Hospital School of Nursing, Class of 1949B.  It was after graduating from Curtis Academy and before starting nursing school that she met the love of her life, Clifford K. Andrews through the Curtis alumni and teachers badminton club.  They were married in 1949 and began to raise their family of seven talented and independent children.  Joan devoted the rest of her life to providing a stable and supportive home to her children and Clifford.  Extended family members, Clifford’s associates, neighbourhood children, the friends, boyfriends, and girlfriends of their offspring, and later the spouses, grandchildren, and great grandchildren all received the same warm welcome in the home on Grenfell Avenue that Joan and Clifford shared for nearly 70 years.  That welcoming environment was reproduced in their summer home in Wesleyville where Joan and Clifford spent many summers, preserving the old homestead, creating a beautiful lush garden, literally out of the rocks, and welcoming family and visitors from near and far with a cup of tea and a raisin tea bun or if you were lucky, a meal of pan fried cod.

Joan was predeceased by her beloved husband Clifford (d. 2013).  Her legacy will survive through her children: Paul (wife Brenda, grandchildren Christopher and Lauren); Jeanette (partner Jeff King, grandson Michael Andrews); Linda (partner Blake Cryderman, granddaughter Denise Cornick and great granddaughter Maya O’Leary and grandson Alex Cornick, wife Julie King, great grandchildren Max and Sam Cornick and Jayden King); Dianne (husband Lorne Boone and grandson Lyndon); Peter (wife Celeste, grandsons Benjamin, Timothy, and Liam); Sylvia (husband Stephen Bartlett, grandchildren Owen and Evelyn); and Mark (wife Kay).  Joan is also survived by her sister Louise Stalder (Peter, d. 2019), her brother Wallace Snow (Marie), sister-in-law June Snow, and many nieces and nephews who all have their own special memories of Aunt Joan.  Joan’s siblings that predeceased her are: Minnie Fowler (Art), Annie Dawe (Charles), Fred Snow (Marjorie), Walter Snow, and Don Snow.

A family memorial service will be held from the Carnell Memorial Chapel, 329 Freshwater Road, St. John’s on Wednesday, July 8th at 11:00 AM.  Donations in Joan’s memory may be made to the Bowring Park Foundation, a place she loved and spent many happy hours throughout her life.   Feel free to share a memory of Joan or leave a message of condolence.

For those who cannot attend the funeral service, it will be livestreamed on Wednesday, July 8th at 11:00 AM.  (The link will be posted here.)

To Paiul, Brenda, Chris , Lauren and the entire Andrews Family, we were so saddened to hear of the passing of such a wonderful special Lady. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. during this time.
Paul I can recall over the years many times how lovingly you spoke of your Mom and all the wonderful, loving and amazing things she accomplished, she truly was the matriarch of the Andrews Family., her true love,
We wish we could be with you during this time but when we get back from B.C. we look forward to getting together to celebrate your Mom’s life
Sending you all hugs
Darryl, Peggy and Family

Michael, Denise, Alex, Jeanette and all…
so many lovely things flood in my mind when I think about your grandmother and mother. her calmness, her kindness, her wisdom, her practicality. her cute humour. the way she loved Clifford and you all.

but I think the thing that was there but unnamed was the stable undercurrent with which she matriarch-ed that big green house on Grenfell. there were lots of ways in, but no matter what way you took, the big, open table was just around the corner. she made me – and i think anyone who made their way in – feel welcome, cared for and connected..

I’m sad for your loss, and grateful to have been part of the great tumbling connected mass of love that Joan created for all around her.

love kim

Our thoughts and prayers are with all of you as you celebrate Aunt Joan’s wonderful life. It is always sad losing a loved one but our cherished memories help carry us through the difficult days and I’m sure you all have many to share. Her pleasant smile and kind words will always be remembered.

Dear Peter, Celeste and the entire Andrews family. I am so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother, Mrs Andrews. She was such a warm, gentle and giving lady. She always welcomed me when I would visit she and Mr Andrews at 85 Grenfell, and she always made me feel at home. I felt like I was a part of your beautiful family. The last time I saw her was a few years ago in Ottawa, at Sylvia’s home. She was so gracious and welcoming to my children and I. Thank-you to Mrs Andrews for always making me feel welcomed and loved. May you Rest In Peace. To the Andrews family, my thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. Sincerely, Kathy

Paul, Jeanette, Linda, Dianne, Peter, Sylvia and Mark. and families…such a lovely tribute to your beautiful Mother. It brought back so many memories of wonderful times I shared with the family and which I shall always cherish. She was truly a gentle soul and along with your father made a welcoming, loving home. May you all find solace in the joy of her long and fruitful life. Affectionately, Donna

To all my Andrews cousins. So very sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. Aunt Jone was a kind, loving, caring and thoughtful person that I have so many great memories of. From many childhood vacations, honeymoon with Isabelle and later visit with our children at 85 Grenfell Ave and Round Pond she was such an important yet humble figure. I thank her and Uncle Clifford for having raised such a wonderful family.

So very sorry to hear of Mrs. Andrews’s passing. Shared lots of tea and food with both Mrs. Andrews and Mr. Andrews at Wesleyville and at Grenfell Avenue. Enjoyed the talks. Almost every summer we visited the Wesleyville homestead where we were proudly shown every new planting as well as the growth of older plants and trees. Every time I visited Mr. & Mrs. Andrews on Grenfell Avenue. I didn’t look for the number……. just the green house.

I have so many great memories of Aunt Joan and Uncle Clifford and summers with Linda, Jeanette and all the cousins in Newfoundland! She really understood children and their feelings. Truly a lovely person and a model Aunt.

My sister Joan and I were always very close, despite our different interests. One year younger than me, Joan liked books and I liked sports. In grade school, Joan cried and they let her skip a grade, so we could be together. After high school she was too young to go to nursing school, so we both worked for a year and started together in 1946. Thanks to Joan and Clifford I met my husband Peter at 85 Grenfell Ave! And our two families had many fun times together over the years, between Newfoundland and Ontario. Joan was a wonderful sister and I will miss her dearly

Sorry to read of Mrs. Andrews’ passing. I know of her and family as I was a student of Macpherson from 1955-65 and a classmate of Paul. Mr. Andrews was our principal and also taught us French. I last spoke to them at Monty’s Restaurant about 8 yrs. ago. Also, knew Linda when she worked at the Janeway as I did. Take care. I know you will all miss her. Suzanne Walsh

So sorry for your loss Linda, Jeannette, Denise and darling Maya, and the entire Andrews family. Joan was a kind and wonderful role model and will be missed by many. I remember Joan invited me to Christmas dinner one year when I was alone at Christmas so that my son and Denise could be together and I didn’t have to be alone on Christmas Day. Like I said, a kind woman. Off to your next adventure Joan! Have fun!

My deepest sympathies to Sylvia and family on the passing of your mother and grandmother.

I was so sorry to hear of Joan’s passing – I remember her fondly as “my mother’s cousin” – such a joy to be around and always with interesting bits of family history to share. Our last encounter was a few weeks after my mother passed – for a memorial game of cards. My mother, Margaret, if she were here, would join me in these words of sorrow and I know she would be saddened by the news. I regret that due to COVID restrictions, a visit at Carnell’s is not possible. Know that I hold you in my thoughts and prayers
Peace and love – Ettie

Aunt Joan will always have a special place in my heart.

My father Fred Carter and I had the good fortune of spending some wonderful time with Cliff and Joan on many occasions, both in their summer home in Wesleyville and on Grenfell Avenue. They were both the most welcoming, kind-hearted and interesting people you could meet. I especially enjoyed witnessing the great love and respect that they had for each other. They were a wonderful couple. Cliff was decended from my great, great, great grandfather Samual Carter of Greenspond/Ship Island. He devoted himself to researching and recording the Carters and other branches of his family, with enthusiastic support from Joan. I and many other people have a much fuller and deeper understanding of my roots as a result of their efforts. Joan was a lovely, gracious woman. May she and Cliff rest in a well-deserved peace.

Our deepest condolances to Joans. large wonderful family . Such a lovely person and many lovely memories. Our thoughts are with you
Much love Debra and June Blackmore.

Judy Perchard

My sympathies to the passing of your Mother. Joan was a lovely lady and I knew her through her visits to Wesleyville. When Cliff and Joan came to visit you all filled Aunt Carries house With laughter and wonderful noise. Cherish your memories.

Jeanette and family
Please accept my sincere condolences on the lose of your beloved Mom. Yes, I was one of the fortune ones, who spent much of childhood growing up in the welcoming Andrews household. With amazement I reflect on your Mom’s daily balancing act of infant and child care, meal prep, piano coach, and gracious host to various community leaders/university academia who regularly happened-by. All this amid a gallery of family and neighbourhood children and a back drop of a 1960’s Hi-Fi eliciting musique en francais. Through it all, I recall your Mom’s steadfast patience, encouragement in word and smile, and her child-centred understanding for the joy and enrichment we as children derived from each experience/encounter. In reading her beautiful obituary, I appreciate your parents have left a rich repertoire of family memories and if I may add, valued learning opportunities shared with many others of us! RIP Mrs. Andrews.
Janet (Driscoll) Short
