Mrs. Melva Mavis Andrews passed away in Stettler on May 16, 2015 at the age of 79 years.  Melva was the youngest child of eight, to parents Gottlieb and Christina Metzger.  
Melva married her soulmate Robert Andrews on October 25, 1952, they moved to the Botha area in 1965 until they retired in the early 80’s.  Bob and Melva loved to travel.  They toured for 23 years visiting Arizona and most of the other states.
Melva enjoyed knitting and crocheting, she spent many hours making doilies and special wall hangings for her children and grandchildren.  Many days off fishing and camping with Bob and friends they met along their travels.  They spent time taking a few cruises, which Melva didn’t like the motion of the boat…and a train ride through the Rocky Mountains.
Melva and Bob moved to Red Deer in 2005 and just moved back to Stettler in 2014.  
Melva is survived by her son Donald and wife Diane and grandchildren Angela, Robert (Janene), Calvin and great granddaughter Adalyn Andrews; daughter Lois and husband Larry Robinson, grandchildren Michelle, Micheal (Christina), great grandsons Logan Anderson and Grayden Robinson.  Melva is also survived by her in laws: Harold Ray, Sylvie Metzger, Mary Metzger, Loretta Bradly, Roger (Janet) Andrews, Joan Stevenson, Larry (Wanda) Andrews, Dave (Claire) Andrews, Joyce Rogers and Danny (Brenda) Andrews; many nieces, nephews, other relatives and many dear friends.  Melva was predeceased by her parents Gottlieb and Christina Metzger and infant son Robert Kenneth Andrews; brothers: Norman, Elmer, and Edward, sisters: Freda, Eileen, Selma and Hilda; and her husband Robert Roy Andrews just last year.
