Mary Wheeler Andrews was born Feb 22, 1872, to Rev. Samuel R. and Sofia F. Wheeler on Seventh Day Lane near Nortonville, Kan., and died Feb 17, 1961, at Boulder, Colo.
She was the last surviving charter member of the Seventh Day Baptist Church, Boulder, organized in May 1893. On Sept 20, 1893, she married Milton College classmate, Darwin M. Andrews. Mr. Andrews (1869-1938) was a world-renown specialist in Rocky Mountain flowers, plants, and trees. He and Mrs. Andrews filled a large place in the life of the Boulder church. The attendance of university and community people at her memorial service point to the deep, though quiet, influence on the Boulder community.
Memorial serices were conducted in her church with Pastor Emeritus Milo Sutton and Pastor David Clarke presenting tributes to her. Surviving her are a son, Philip, a daughter, Mrs. Walter (Mildred) Steele, a brother, Herbert N. Wheeler, and a sister, Mrs. Clarissa Rasmusssen, all of Boulder. There also survive several grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Burial was in Mountain View Memorial Park at Boulder. D. S. C. (Rev. David S. Clarke).
