Birth: Oct. 17, 1909
Death: May 4, 2012

Catherine W. Andries of Plymouth Meeting passed away on May 4, 2012, at 102 years of age. Born October 17, 1909, to the late Thomas and Mary (nee Brophy) Woods, she was the seventh of their eight children in West Easton, PA. Mrs. Andries graduated from Misericordia Hospital School of Nursing, Class of 1931. She served as a Registered Nurse at Fitzgerald Mercy Hospital from the time of its opening in 1933 until her marriage to the late Raymond M. Andries, MD on St. Valentine's Day, 1942. Their new life together was interrupted by Dr. Andries' service to the Army Medical Corps in Europe, while Catherine helped relieve a vital nursing shortage in the operating room of her beloved father-in-law. The end of WW II saw their renewed life of love and service take root in Plymouth Meeting, PA, where they established a medical office in their home. Catherine contributed to the new general practice as nurse and office manager which she balanced with her tireless devotion to her family as wife and mother. Mrs. Andries was well known throughout the community for devotion to the Catholic faith, commitment to the Pro-Life movement, and as a ready volunteer for Sacred Heart Hospital and Parish life. Her Irish humor, optimism and wisdom were treasured by friends and family alike. She is survived by her daughter Rosemary A. Horstmann M.D. (husband Joseph P., M.D.), and son, Raymond C., M.D. (wife Ruta G., M.D.) three granddaughters Anne M. Horstmann, CatherineM. Horstmann, and Daina C. Andries, and her sister Agnes Andries. She was predeceased by her siblings: John Woods, Julia Woods, James Woods, Thomas Woods, Jeremiah Woods, and Mary Mellon McDonald.
