Andrea Ellen (Perrow) Rumery
Saint Augustine, FL. - Andrea Ellen (Perrow) Rumery, 73, of Saint Augustine, Florida, passed away Tuesday, January 14, 2020, at Backus Hospital in Norwich, CT due to complications from pneumonia.
Andrea (Andie) was a beloved daughter, sister, wife, Mom, and Grammom. She was born on July 14, 1946, in Millinocket, Maine to Janet (Raymond) Perrow and Everett Perrow. She grew up in a thriving paper mill town, enjoying her winters ice skating and her summers at the Perrow family camp on Millinocket Lake.
Andrea married the love of her life and best friend Barry on September 4, 1971. Their love for each other transcended into their wonderful and loving children, Steven M. Rumery and wife Cynthia JB Rumery (Glastonbury, CT) and Tricia A. (Rumery) Rust and husband Steven R. Rust (West Warren, MA), and Grammom and Poppy's incredible 15 grandchildren.
Andrea devoted herself to her family and friends, and she was a volunteer organizer and fundraiser for many of her children's school clubs and activities. Lively and warm, Andie loved to entertain and hosted many memorable dinners and parties. Her natural style and impeccable taste in fashion, wine, and food inspired everyone who knew and loved her. In her free time, Andie enjoyed knitting, quilting, and writing projects, and collecting vintage and unusual cookbooks.
Andie also loved to travel. To celebrate retirement, she and Barry took a cruise from London to Boston, enjoying ports across the North Atlantic. However, no matter where she and Barry went, there was always a calling to return to the Perrow family camp, where a sense of family belonging was renewed, and fresh memories made.
Andrea is survived by two sisters, Susan Perrow of Bangor, ME and Teresa (Perrow) Breton of Wildwood, FL; and two brothers, Leroy Perrow of Lady Lake, FL and Mark Perrow of Hamden, ME.
Andrea's calling hours will be held Sunday, January 19th from 1-3 pm at the Mystic Funeral Home on Route 1 Mystic, CT. Her mass will be celebrated on Monday at 10 am at St. Patrick Church, 32 East Main St, Mystic, CT.
At a future date to be scheduled, interment of her ashes will occur in Millinocket cemetery, overlooking the radiant summit of Mt. Katahdin, after a Mass of Christian Burial at St. Martin of Tours Church in Millinocket, ME.
Memorial donations may be sent to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital (

I am so very sorry to read of Andrea's passing. We were childhood campmates at Millinocket Lake, having tons of fun in those carefree days, and later classmates at Stearns High School and then reuniting years later again at camp association meetings at the lake. Andrea never changed throughout her life and was always upbeat, positive and a beacon of light. I am truly saddened by her passing. Treasure all your wonderful memories of times shared with her, as will I. May she rest in eternal peace. God Bless her and her family. Gaile

I had the great privilege of knowing Andrea and also sharing some of her wonderful meals. She sure knew how to entertain. May her family find peace that she no longer has to suffer nor do they have to watch her do so. With my sincere sympathy, Maddy

So sorry for your loss. Andrea was a classmate at Stearns. We graduated together in the class of 1964. She will be missed by all of us as we gather in a few years for our 60th class reunion. Cherish your memories of her as your Mom and Grandmother.
