The Lord took Andrea Bubnash Kinyon home on April 14, 2018. She died at Mt. View Nursing Home in Billings.
Our beloved mother, grandmother, and sister was born September 18, 1943 in Chester to Nick and Josephine Bubnash. Andrea attended Hay Coulee School, Chester High School and graduated from Joplin High School. She graduated from Northern Montana College with an Education degree. She taught in Geraldine and Glasgow, MT. She later attended the University of Montana in Library Science. She worked for a group home in Havre and as a care giver in Chester.
Andrea loved her children, grandchildren and family. She was devoted to God, attending church wherever she lived. In her last apartment she walked across a field of snow with her walker to attend church and go to the Senior Center.
