Darlene Mann Andes, 70, of Sumerduck, passed from this world to her reward on February 1, 2021.
She was born January 22, 1951, to the late John P. Mann III and Mae D. Mann.
She was a 1969 graduate of Brentsville District High School in Nokesville and attended Bridgewater College.
Mrs. Andes was always a homemaker after her children were born. She was a strong woman of Christian Faith. She loved to organize a gathering or have a family meal. For many years, she volunteered at school, church and the Christian Women’s Club. Fellowship and caring was her ministry to others. She loved her family, especially her grandchildren. When the phone rang, a letter came in the mail or a care package was sent, it was always about the grandchildren first.
Left to cherish her memory are her husband of 50 years, Roger E. Andes; her son, Phillip Andes and his wife Karen, and granddaughters Hope and Hannah; her son, Darrell Andes Sr. and his wife Chanda, and grandsons Darrell Jr., Devin, Dustin and Dylan. She always considered Chanda and Karen her own daughters.
She also leaves her two brothers, John P. Mann IV and his wife Nancy, and Chuck Mann’ special neighbors and in-laws Paul and Carolyn Croushorn, and Wayne and Cindy Andes, along with many other extended family members and friends.
She was predeceased by a grandson, Noah Matthew Andes.
We had fun. We talked. We laughed. We cried. We played. We sang. We ate meals. We celebrated. We grieved. We prayed. We sometimes raised the roof. We always loved . . . together. We miss her . . . together.
Some of her favorite Bible verses can be reviewed at your leisure: John 3:16, John 14:6, Matthew 19:14; and ours: 2 Timothy 1:12, Revelation 21:4 and Revelation 22:5. She often wrote “Without Christmas, there is no
Easter.” and “Jesus is the Reason for the Season!”
The Andes family is in the care of Moser Funeral Home in Warrenton. A private celebration of life will be held at a later date. If you would like to make a contribution to help defray the cost of final expenses, you
may send those gifts to Moser Funeral Home.
