Jeanette A. Wiench Andre, 83, of Altoona, and formerly of Arcadia, passed
away on Wednesday, August 7, 2019, at Grace Edgewood Assisted Living in
Altoona, under the care of St. Joseph’s Hospice.


Jeanette was born in Independence on May 27, 1936, to John and Blanche
(Puchalla) Wiench. She attended Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Schools,
laying the foundation for her devotion to her Catholic faith. Jeanette
married Lee Andre, and the couple moved to Arcadia. Though the two later
divorced, they were blessed with four children: Gary Lee, Susan, Lisa and
Betty Jo. Jeanette worked for Ashley Furniture Industries and Gold ‘N
Plump, where she retired from. In her spare time, she enjoyed gambling,
playing BINGO, dancing to Polka music, eating sweets and cooking. Her
scalloped potatoes and potato salad were second to none and especially
enjoyed by her family.
Jeanette is survived by her son, Gary Andre of Arcadia; daughters, Susan
