    YORKTOWN - Shirley Bell Reynolds Andrews died on June 24, 2010, after a long courageous battle with cancer.

Shirley graduated from Newport News High School in 1951, and went on to the University of Alabama for several years. She began pursuing a career as a Substance Abuse Counselor, in 1973, having worked at Eastern State, Serenity House and with the ASAP Program. Since her retirement in 1995, she worked part-time at Williamsburg Place and The William J. Farley Center in Williamsburg. She enjoyed walking the beach, collecting fossils, doing handwork, writing poetry and reading.

Barbara & Nancy
I'm so sorry for your loss. I hope you can find comfort in knowing that she is now in peace and no longer suffering. True to her character, she fought to the very end. She has helped so many people in her lifetime, and her sense of humor has brought many laughs and smiles. She will be greatly missed. If there is anything I can do for either of you, please call.
