Andrea S. Bureman

Andrea S. Bureman

After a lengthy illness, Andrea Sue "Andi" Bureman, 68, passed away at her home on Sunday, October 12, 2014. She had been a resident of Lake of the Woods, Locust Grove, since 1979.

Andrea was born May 16, 1946, in Oklahoma. She was preceded in death by her parents, Ralph E. and Thelma J. Bureman; and stepmother Freda S. Bureman. She is survived by four brothers, Michael H. Bureman of Lakewood, Colo., David R. Bureman of Hampton, Dr. James E. Bureman of Springfield, Mo., and Phillip E. Bureman of Olathe, Kan.; their wives; and many nieces and nephews whom she adored.

Andi grew up in Florissant, Mo., and worked as a flight attendant for Eastern Airlines until 1989. During her flying years, she was able to see the world.

From 1989 to 2011, Andi worked for the Lake of the Woods golf pro shop, and became a very accomplished golfer herself. In the spirit of community, Andrea also volunteered as an EMT.

Andrea's passion in life was her love of animals. She was an exemplary guardian of horses, dogs and many feline friends. She was a longtime, valued member of the Orange County Humane Society. Andi selflessly came to the financial aid of hundreds of injured and abandoned animals, covering the expenses for surgery, neutering and vaccines. Her passion for the trap, neuter, release plan for feral cat colonies was evident in her dedication over the years. She will be missed by all who knew her, two-legged and -four.

A stone will be dedicated to her memory under the maple tree on the 11th tee at LOW golf course.

Donations in Andi's memory may be sent to the Orange County Human Society, Box 852 Locust Grove, VA 22508.
