Shirley Lorraine Andrews.

Shirley Lorraine Andrews went home to be with her Lord and Savior on May 4, in Tehachapi at the age of 85. She was born to parents George John and Johanna Lorraine (Hanson Hoehn) on July 2, 1934, in Benson, Minn.

Hoehn married Robert Alonzo Andrews in 1965. The couple moved to Tehachapi so Robert could work in the Tehachapi wind farm industry. Though Shirley worked in different industries, she was most importantly a loving wife and mother.

Andrews is survived by her sister, Pat and Bill Antoski, of Minneapolis, Minn .; sons, John Luypen of Tehachapi, and Steven Luypen of Hollywood; stepdaughter, Tammie and Ken Johnson of Bismarck, North Dakota; grandsons, Alexander Hughes, Patrick Irwin, Shane Irwin, Eric Luypen and Jason Luypen; great-granddaughter, Laya Irwin; and great-grandson, Brace Irwin.

Shirley and Robert will be buried together at Bakersfield National Cemetery.

Wood Family Funeral Service was entrusted with her care. For condolences please visit
