Andrea Ann Herndon, November 12, 1943~November 14, 2015

Herndon, Andrea PicAndrea Ann Herndon, 72, of Nashville, Arkansas, went to be with her Heavenly Father on Saturday, November 14, 2015.  She was born on November 12, 1943, in Texarkana, Arkansas to the late Otto and Glycine (Powell) Miller.  Andrea was a light in this world and is loved by so many.

Andrea has always had family in the Nashville, Arkansas area.  She and her husband, Jerry, moved to Nashville in 1971 where she was an active member in the First United Methodist Church, Operation Christmas Child, Howard County Charitable Medical Clinic and the community.

She is survived by her husband, Jerry R. Herndon.  He was her love; they were married for 46 years.  She is also survived by a daughter, Brooke B. Redfern and her husband, John M.Redfern of Fayetteville, AR; a son, G. Grant Herndon, of Fayetteville, AR; four grandchildren, Miller Redfern, Anna Herndon, Avery Redfern and Kate Herndon, all of Fayetteville, AR; and a number of loving cousins and friends.

Family visitation will take place at Nashville Funeral Home in Nashville, AR. on Thursday, November 19, 2015 from 6:00-8:00 P.M.  A memorial celebration of her life will be held at First United Methodist Church of Nashville at 2:00 P.M., Friday, November 20, 2015.  Pastors Calvin Parker and Skip Basham will officiate.

The family will be traveling to and from Fayetteville and surrounding areas for the service, so it will be difficult to accommodate floral arrangements.  If you would like to honor Andrea’s life, please consider making a donation to a program that was very near to her heart, Operation Christmas Child at the First Baptist Church of Nashville, P.O. Box 339, Nashville, AR. 71852.

    I remember Andrea giving Dawn a lovely bridesmaids luncheon before she married my son Jason. Andrea was gracious to invite my mother and me to attend. She was a true lady.

    Jerry, I was sad to hear of Andreas passing. I remember the good times at Wadley’s, when we were in Dental School. Each day I ask myself, where does the time go. It seems like only yesterday that we were all working at Wadley’s and trying to survive.
