Jackson, Mississippi–Patricia Marie Strong Andrews of Pearl, MS passed away on September 29, 2017 at Riveroaks Hospital; she was born October 13, 1960 in Vicksburg, MS. As a registered nurse she always put others before herself, was selfless, and giving. The death of her youngest son, Chad, was unbearable and she never conquered that grief. She leaves behind her beloved husband Ray Andrews, endearing son Brandon Andrews, and cherished grandchildren Gabby Andrews and Jonathon Andrews. Also her sisters, Sheri Strong Castanon, Katherine Strong Nosrat, Sondra Strong Trosclair; and her brothers Steve Strong and Clayton Strong Jr. She is also survived by her mother Marie Romano Strong and many other aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins. She is preceded in death by her son, Chad Ryan Andrews, father, Clayton Allison Strong Sr., and brother, Thomas Alan Strong. It was Patricia’s wish to be cremated and her ashes spread in the Gulf of Mexico, her chosen place to be in life and death.
