Margaret Patricia Andrews died Tuesday March 17th at the Hospice House on the Lake following a long illness. She is survived by her daughter, Kate, her brother, Paul, her stepmother Dorothy, and two nephews. Margaret was a lifelong resident of Euclid, Ohio, the daughter of James and Mary Andrews (Colberg), and the niece of John and Delores Colberg (Moses). After graduating from Euclid high school in 1974, Margaret attended Miami University for her bachelor’s degree in Education and The University of Wisconsin for her master’s degree in Vocational Rehabilitation. She gave birth to her daughter in 1980. She graduated from Ursuline College in 1983 with her degree in nursing. During her career she worked at University Hospitals in Cleveland and, in 1994, began her work as a Hospice Nurse for the Visiting Nurse’s Association of Cleveland (Now Hospice and Palliative Care Partners of Ohio). Margaret brought so many patients and families comfort during her 15 years as a Hospice Nurse and many years as a volunteer bereavement counselor. She loved her work and she loved the communities she served. She liked to volunteer at St. Malachi’s Church food window and to knit hats and scarves and distribute them. She loved to cook and feed everyone. She was a devoted mother, daughter, sister, aunt, and friend. A gathering in honor of Margaret will be held Friday, March 27th from 4pm to 8pm at Corrigan-Deighton Funeral Home, 21900 Euclid Ave, Euclid OH 44117. Tel. 216-481-5277
