Andrea S. Chelf, 75, Carmel, IN (1943-2019)

Andi Sue grew up to become a nurse and marry an Adair County boy, Bob Chelf, and they made their lives and raised their children in Indiana. They always held their local connections, though, and she was always available to help family members anytime and every time she could.

Andrea S. Chelf, 75, of Carmel, IN passed away Thursday, June 20, 2019.

Funeral services will be at 12:30pm Wednesday, June 26, 2019 at Flanner and Buchanan-Carmel, where family and friends are invited to gather from 10:30am until the time of the service. Andrea was born August 26, 1943 in Bedford, IN to the late Everett and Pauline Andis. She was a graduate of Methodist School of Nursing. She later received her BS in Nursing from Indiana University.

Andrea began her nursing career at Methodist Hospital. She also worked as a county nurse in North Vernon and as a surgical nurse for Jennings County Hospital. Later on, she worked as a school nurse in Jennings County and Westfield Schools. Her second career was as a real estate agent, with Century 21 and Realty Group One. She left real estate around 2008 to focus on her family.

Andi Sue was always bright, creative, cheerful and truly beautiful. She was one of the most giving women on earth, and totally devoted to her family, who miss her dearly.

Andrea is survived by her husband of 52 years, Bob; daughters, Jennifer L. Chelf (husband, Sean Devenney), and Amy C. Lane (husband, Andrew); grandchildren, Lucy Devenney, and Audrey and Molly Lane.
