The death of her youngest son, Chad, was unbearable and she never conquered that grief.

She leaves behind her beloved husband, Ray Andrews; endearing son, Brandon Andrews; and cherished grandchildren, Gabby Andrews and Jonathon Andrews. Also, her sisters, Sheri Strong Castanon, Katherine Strong Nosrat, and Sondra Strong Trosclair; and her brothers, Steve Strong and Clayton Strong Jr.

She is also survived by her mother, Marie Romano Strong, and many other aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.

She is preceded in death by her son, Chad Ryan Andrews; father, Clayton Allison Strong Sr.; and brother, Thomas Alan Strong.

It was Patricia’s wish to be cremated and her ashes spread in the Gulf of Mexico, her chosen place to be in life and death.
