POLAND — Patricia A. Benson Andrews, 87, passed away Friday, Dec. 25, 2020, at her home, surrounded by her family.
She was born July 30, 1933, in Youngstown, a daughter of the late Edward and Bertha Medicus Herman.
Patricia graduated from South High School. She began her career as a tax preparer for H&R Block and then later independently from her home.
Having a love for nature kept her active and outgoing, especially walking through Poland Woods with her son’s dogs. Her best memories were trips to the OBX, where she loved seeing her family gather all together. The holidays were most important to her, being known for her Christmas feasts and challenging Easter egg hunts. Patricia also loved bridge and was an avid player. She will be sadly missed by all.

She was preceded in death by three brothers, Ronald, Richard and Eugene Herman.
