Judith Andrews


December 9, 2019


Judith B. Andrews 86 of Riverside PA passed away peacefully in her home on December 6, 2019 with her daughter, Juliet by her side. 

She was born in Sunbury at the Mary M. Packer Hospital on April 4, 1933. She was the daughter of the late Pauline Deppen and John D. Bauer.  

Her formative education was at Oaklyn Consolidated School through eighth grade. Upon completion of high school, she attended Bloomsburg State Teachers College where she received a bachelor’s degree in Elementary Education in 1954. It was here that she met her future husband, Frank Andrews. They married in August of 1955.  She taught third grade at the First Ward Elementary School in Danville.  During this time, she began volunteering at the Thomas Beaver Free Library until her promotion to head librarian.  She earned a Master of Education Degree from Bloomsburg State Teacher’s College in 1969.

Judith committed her life work to the legacy of the Thomas Beaver Free Library. Judith believed her most important role was to serve the public.  Whether an employee or patron, Mrs. Andrews, affectionately known as Mrs. A., inspired and mentored all who entered its doors. She exemplified the best of librarianship with her will to serve the public in a free library, to protect the right to read for all patrons and to represent the democratic freedom of the library. 

Towards the end of her career, Judith was instrumental in working with the Montour County Historical Society. In the year 2000, Judith was formerly recognized by the Montour County Commissioners for her lifelong dedication to the community.

Her interests varied from reading the New York Times to crocheting baby blankets.  She was an avid reader, crafter and collector. Judith’s personal expressions are what made the Andrews house feel like home to so many.  

Judith enjoyed attending family reunions, birthdays and dinners out with the “library ladies”. This past July, she was able to attend the memorable “Ninth Street Block Party” surrounded by her neighbors and friends of the Riverside Community.

Judith will always be remembered for her intellect, strength and her willingness to speak her mind. Her sharp sense of humor will be missed most of all.

She is survived by her daughter Juliet Andrews Rall and her husband Thomas as well as her beloved granddaughter, Elizabeth; all of Sunbury PA.  She is also survived by her brother John Bauer and his wife Rose Ann of Dallas, PA.  She will be deeply missed by her many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her parents and husband she is preceded in death by her grandson Thomas Rall and her sister Jane Knup, all of whom she adored.

The family would like to share their deepest love, admiration and respect for her private caregivers who provided kindness, compassion, attentiveness, constant hugs, kisses and laughter to our “Nonny”. They will be forever in our memory and always be considered part of our family.

 Special thanks to the staff of Life Geisinger and our deepest gratitude goes out to Geisinger Hospice for their immediate attention to our needs. 

Family and friends will be received at a Gathering from 5 pm – 8 pm Thursday, December 19, 2019 at Visneski Funeral Home, Inc.  42 W. Mahoning Street Danville PA
