Patricia Mae Andrus
1932 ~ 2015

Patricia Mae Johnson Andrus, 82, passed away peacefully on January 2, 2015 following a stroke on December 30, 2014. Her husband Dale and other family members were by her side. She was born August 21, 1932 in Alliance, Box Butte, Nebraska, to Jack David Cicero Johnson and Cora Emily Schneider.

She is survived by her husband Dale, her 5 children, David (DeDe), Robert (Maryann), Mark (Deborah), Garth (Deanne) and Julie (Kerry); 12 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren; and her sister Dorothy Ghysels. Dale and Patricia have been married for almost 63 years (February 26th).

Patricia dedicated her life as a wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, genealogist, nurse and Professor. She graduated from Glendale High School in Glendale California where she carefully planned her classes around a nursing career. In 1953, after the birth of her firstborn child David, she finished her nursing education and became a Registered Nurse. Once all her children were in school she began taking college classes and earned a Bachelor’s degree in nursing science. Later, she earned a Master’s degree in nursing education and began teaching nursing in community colleges in Southern California. After moving to Provo Utah in 1988 she taught nursing at Brigham Young University for a year and then at Utah Valley State College in Orem for eight years. Patricia has spent more than 50 years doing family research and loved teaching her knowledge to others. For the past 6 years she was serving as a church service missionary at the Provo Utah Family History Center and she was just recently released from her Ward calling as a Genealogy Teacher where she served for many years. She has touched the lives of many through her love and service. She will be greatly missed.

It gives us great comfort at this time in the knowledge we have of the eternal nature of families. We are profoundly grateful for our Savior and for the all-encompassing plan set forth to seal us together as families.

Funeral services were held on January 7, 2015 at the Warenski Funeral Home and she was interred at the Provo City Cemetery.
