Andrea packed a lot into her 59 years. Born in Falmouth, Jamaica to Albert and Doris Chin See, educated at Mt. Alvernia and then off to chilly Toronto, Canada for the last year of high school and a Bachelor of Science degree at University of Toronto. Andrea met Grant in the co-ed (revolutionary for its time) dorm at U of T and she was trapped into Canada’s 4 seasons ever since!
Andrea and Grant married in 1981 and raised their 3 children to become wonderful adults. Thanks to Glenn, Colin and Lauren for making us look so good.
Andrea was a professional banker, achieving her Awards of Excellence in Financial Planning and Canadian Securities. She helped hundreds of clients (and family) to manage their accounts, homes, projects and retirements. Despite battling very serious health challenges for decades she was also able to volunteer with the St. Dunstan’s community and quietly share her time and talents with them.
Ever the perfectionist, Andrea created and maintained a beautiful home and gardens that were admired by visitors and neighbours. Her cooking and baking were of such high standards that a dinner was always a gourmet event - and no one can resist her chocolate chip cookies.
Andrea was tireless in her wish to help friends and family in any way her many talents could assist. She will be greatly missed!
