On October 5, 1960 in Ebro, Florida, God blessed Harry & Autherene (Hogans) Andrews with a beautiful baby girl, Bridgette Yvonne. The one to become a mother, not only to her own children and siblings, but to all the ones she was to come in contact with.
Being raised in a Christian home she accepted Christ as her personal Savior. Bridgette was a member of Prosperity Christian Church International (PCCI) under the leadership of Pastor Elvis Brown, where she exemplified her gifts of serving in any way that she could.
Bridgette was a woman who loved her family, especially her boys but more especially her grandchildren. If she wasn't spending time with her babies, then she enjoyed gardening, grilling, and making her specialty soups. Although she had a quiet demeanor, Bridgette left a tremendous impact on the lives of everyone she came in touch with.
