Princeton – Beverly Nolia Andrews, 81, went home to be with the Lord and her heavenly family on December 28th, 2019. Beverly was born to Brewer and Priscilla (Cushing) Andrews on January 18, 1938 in St. Stephen, New Brunswick. She was a graduate of Princeton High School, Class of 1956 and later attended the Elim Bible Institute in Lima, New York. Beverly was a devoted Christian and a lifelong member of Woodland Baptist Church, teaching Sunday School and serving God through Youth ministry.
She worked in Baileyville at both the local pharmacy and the Rufus Ashley Hardware store as a young adult before venturing off to Connecticut where she was employed with Royal McBee Typewriter Company until their closing. Beverly eventually returned to Princeton and then settled in Woodland to devote all of her energy and emotional strength to raising a family through solid Christian principles and a foundation of faith with her late husband, Clifford McPhee. They adopted a son together and considered this to be one of their greatest joys in life.
In addition to her parents, Brewer and Priscilla, Beverly was predeceased by her brother, Larry Andrews. She loved each of them more than words can describe, and humbly prayed for the day that she would be reunited with them in Heaven. Additionally, she will be fondly remembered by her son, Kevin B. McPhee of Yarmouth; two wonderful grandchildren, Elle and Ben McPhee; her loving sister-in-law, Jane Andrews of Princeton, two nephews, Devon and Duane Andrews - and countless friends who shared her journey along the way.
A celebration of life service will be held at Mays Funeral Home, 26 Church St., Calais on Saturday, January 11th, 2020 at 1:30 pm with Dr. Larry Newman officiating this remembrance of Bev. Her burial will follow at the South Princeton Cemetery, with a reception to follow at the Woodland Baptist Church, on the corner of Route 1 and the South Princeton Road. Thoughtful gestures, condolences and memories to remember Bev can be offered and shared through Mays Funeral home at www.maysfuneralhome.com
Bev loved Jesus, friends, flowers, plants, children and birds – but not dandelions.
It was Bev’s steadfast belief that we are all connected through His master plan, and her sincere hope that each of us will meet her again in heaven one day. May she rest in peace knowing that God is in control, and that only tears of joy are being shed for her during this difficult time. She is in a peaceful place, and still praying for us all.
