Rest in Peace Josephine A. "Josie" Andre

Josephine A. "Josie" (DeAnda) Andre, loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away peacefully with friends and family at her side in Sacramento, July 24, 2018, at the age of 81. Funeral services will be held Friday, Aug. 3, at 11 a.m. in the chapel at St. Mary's Cemetery (6509 Fruitridge Road, Sacramento). A reception will follow. Born on Aug. 9, 1936, Josie was one of 10 children born to Martin and Josephine DeAnda. Preceded in death by her beloved husband, Bob, and brother, Ray, she is survived by brothers Raul, Felix, Frank, Martin, John and Dan DeAnda, and sisters Julia Perry and Yolanda Sturges. Married to Robert L. Andre for 56 years, she is survived by two children, Denise M. Andre and Robert S. Andre, and was a loving grandmother to Aaron Burt, Lauren Reinnoldt, Alexandra Reinnoldt, Alyse Andre, Cole Andre, and great-grandmother to Madison Burt and Dillon Burt. Josie devoted her life to her family and friends, always putting others before her. She loved to cook and bring everyone together at the table. She found joy in simple pleasures; camping with family, traveling, and volunteering. She enjoyed decorating and was always very fashionable. She was, in fact, younger than her years. She had a successful career of 34 years as the Administrative Assistant to the Superintendent for the Washington Unified School District. She volunteered her time to Mercy Guild, Casa De Los Ninos, and Soroptimist International West Sacramento and Sacramento. Thank you for blessing us with a lifetime of tenderness and love. You continue to live on in our hearts. Published in The Sacramento Bee on July 28, 2018

Meanwhile on 3rd Street..good times!

By the tracks in old Broderick: La Crosta’s signage is up and this little neighborhood was jumping today with guitar sounds coming from Stone Music, Edible Pedal selling bikes, Ray Mata clipping and shaving, and the best peach ice cream in town being eaten by my girls at Devil May summer in our little City.
