Loving Daughter, Sister, Aunt

WAYNESVILLE — Andrea Fish, 43, passed away while vacationing in St. Lucia.

A native of Haywood County and resident of Atlanta since 1993, she was the daughter of Leonard Fish and the late Nancy Fish.  Andrea graduated from UNC-Chapel Hill with a B.S. in health policy and hospital administration and later earned her master’s degree from Mercer University in health administration, where she worked very hard and was extremely proud of her accomplishments.  She was an employee for MedAssets in Atlanta for the past 17 years.

Andrea loved to travel, with some of her favorite places being Italy and Turkey.  She was very passionate about animals and loved her Bichons, Lucy and Vino, so very much. She was a loving daughter and sister and would do anything for her family, and also loved her nieces, Lidia and Macey, and nephew, Locke, more than anyone could ever imagine. Andrea was the most doting and attentive aunt three children could ever ask for. Andrea had an infectious smile and laughter that was contagious and had an unmatched sense of humor. She also loved to cook and was famous for her spaghetti.

In addition to her father, she is survived by a sister, Melinda Davis, and her husband, Raife, of Clyde; nieces, Lidia and Macey Davis; a nephew, Locke Davis; and a special friend, David Parry.

A celebration of life service will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday, May 18, in the Waynesville Chapel of Wells Funeral Home with the Rev.Allen Scroggs officiating. The family will receive friends immediately following the service.
