RIP-Remembering Andrea Dewey (Class of ‘62)

By Robert (Bob) Ittner

Andrea was voted the Friendliest at MHS in 1962. Her home was located on Golf Course Rd. and was so conveniently located and so welcoming for people dropping in it was known as the Dewey Youth Center. Andrea was a UT graduate and somewhere along the line owned and operated a restaurant in Crested Butte. She liked to address her friends “Well, Honey, blah blah blah.” She eventually moved to Santa Fe where she lived for many years and operated a doggie day care and boarding operation until the end. Given her generous and loving heart it was discovered that many of her dog companions were not paying customers but animals she rescued. Friends were able to find homes for them after her passing, many going to Colorado. May you Rest In Peace Andrea and thank you for your kind and wonderful spirit. The tribute Nugent made was beautiful and so symbolic of Andrea’s life.

    Indeed it is, and sensitive…wonderful writing. I haven’t seen Nugent since we were so young and that type of thoughtfulness and sensitivity was far away.

    Now you know why I was able to creep through life as I did, fearless but not flawless. Nugent was my tutor in college. I am what I am because of him.
