Scrapbook newspaper clipping, newspaper not identified:

ANDERSON HILL, JUNE 14--It is with sadness we chronicle the departure from this life, of Mrs. Libbie Andrews, widow of Asa Andrews, who died Saturday, June 11, 1927, at the home of her son. R. V. R. Andrews, in Adeline street, Owego. Elizabeth Robinson was the only daughter of the late Newel and Emma Chafield Robinson, and was born in August, 1849, in Prattsville, Greene county. N. Y. Her parents removed to Berkshire when she was quite young and lived there during the lifetime of her father.
She was married to Asa Andrews on December 29, 1868, at Berkshire. They began housekeeping in this vicinity and lived here many years. They were the parents of three children, Emma Permelia and Elmer Newel, (twins, but Elmer Newel died soon after birth) and Raymond VanRenssalaer. Mr. Andrews died very suddenly of heart failure in the summer of 1912, and after that Mrs. Andrews made her home with her son and family in Owego.
She leaves this son and her daughter, who is now Mrs. Asa Stafford, of this place; four grandchildren, Paul V. R. Andrews, Marjory and William V. R. Andrews, and Ruth Stafford. A niece, Mrs. Nellie Robinson Payne, and nephew, Lloyd Robinson, of Binghamton, children of her departed brother, and many cousins, relatives and friends. She was the last survivor of her father's family, although she was the eldest.
The funeral services were held on Monday afternoon at the house, Rev. Robert S. Boyce officiating, and were attended by a large concourse of relatives and friends. Interment was in Evergreen cemetery, beside her beloved husband, whom she so sadly missed all these lonely years, and the two beloved little grandchildren, Donald and Ruth Andrews, and their mother.
There is more, too lengthy to type here. If a descendant would like a copy, please let me know and I will mail it.
