It is with overwhelming sadness that we announce the death of our beloved Andrea, at the Health Sciences North on Friday July 19, 2019, surrounded by her loving family. Beloved wife and best friend of Bill, loving and devoted mother to her three sons, Xander, Dylan and Tyler. She will watch over them forever as their true north, a bright star always shining down upon them. Andrea was the cherished daughter of Ron (Gayle) Dowling and Ellen (Carl Barhorst). Beloved sister of Megen (Sam Galbraith). Dear granddaughter of Audrey (the late Martin Dowling). She will be missed by her in-laws Denis (Gail) Frappier, Kelly Frappier (Rick Hallwood) and Rob (Jessica) Frappier. Andrea was truly loved by her many friends and family. Forever remembered for her sense of humour and her fun-loving ways, she has left behind a legacy of generosity, kindness, and caring. Her beautiful smile is one not easily forgotten.
