Andrea Evica

Of Phoenix, Arizona passed away Tuesday, December 7, 2021 in South Milwaukee, Wisconsin with her family by her side.

Despite a hard fought battle with cancer, Andrea, surrounded with love, slipped peacefully away from us Tuesday evening.

Born to Robert and Lillian Nelson, in Milwaukee, Wisconsin on November 29, 1951.

A Greendale High School alumna, Andrea married her husband Frank Evica on September 11, 1971.  Together, they spent 50 years building a family, traveling the world and making memories.  Andrea worked as a phlebotomist nearly her entire life, and will undoubtedly be remembered for her fierce devotion to her family and sense of humor.

She is survived by her loving daughters Monique (nee Evica) Tate and husband Scott, and Rochelle Evica as well as grandchildren Mitchell Evica, Trevor and Julia Tate.

Visitation will be held on Saturday, December 11, at the funeral home from 9 AM – 12 PM.  Funeral Service to follow at 12 PM.

    My heart breaks with the loss of my Aunt Andrea. No words I can offer will make this hurt go away. Although we never have enough time, I will forever be thankful to the Lord Jesus Christ for recently reuniting me with my Aunt Andrea who loved our family unconditionally. Andrea leaves behind a beautiful legacy of unforgettable love, laughter, strength, perseverance, smiles, and memories. My sincerest condolences go out to Frank, Monique, Rochelle, and the entire extended family who are grieving right now.

    After your season of suffering, God in all his grace will restore, confirm, strengthen and establish you.

    This sorrow is pretty stout; from losing my own mother, Andrea was always the best. As Julianne(mom) stated in her books to Michelle. She stated that Andrea was her best friend. Losing my entire family and the loss of my favorite Aunt is somewhat a bit unbearable, I am sincerely sorry for your loss. The fun, sarcastic, smart wit was the best. The greatness of her family was a direct reflection of the Nelsons and Evicas. It was always an amazing trip to see all my family across the Nation and World. Many times Andrea and Frank would visit, no matter where, no matter ho. Each time was a very memorable event.
    There are always troubles and stressors in family, things don’t always work out, but one thing is for certain. Those whom had known us and still know us all, know we are families of sound moral and upstanding character. We were and still are truly blessed to be with such great families.
    That all said and done; It was some of my favorite and formative years, traveling with Andrea, Frank, Monique, Rochelle, I wouldn’t pass up those days if it were offered to me again. Truly truly I will miss you Aunt Andrea.

    I am grateful for the chance to meet and get to know Dennis’ aunt. She was a very kind, warm wonderful person overall. I loved her stories and funny comments when we talk. I feel deep sadness that I will no longer be able to hear her voice and laughter. The moment I saw Aunt Andrea in person, I saw the likeness of my mom in law, Julianne in her. The light in their spirit is the same, and I felt that light is dimmed completely. I know there’s a lot of people who loves/loved her, My heart goes out to her family and I hope/pray they find the strength and healing in this sad time. I love you Aunt Andrea, thank you for the great memories, i will always remember them. – Gen

    I loved Andrea, she had a cool voice and drank diet soda, but I was little so I didnt pay too much attention; and miss everyone

    My sincere condolences to Rochelle, Mitchell and the entire family. I have heard so much about Andrea from Rochelle that I feel that I know her.
    She is at peace now and I pray that the Lord will give comfort to all of you in your time of grieving. But, hang on to those memories – they will
    live with you forever to give you comfort and make you smile.

    I met Andrea in Phoenix where she lived in the winter at an RV park. She introduced herself to me the day we moved in and we were joined at the hip right away. I always heard her call me “hey lady” whenever I was walking past her outside. Along with our wonderful and mutual friend Mary, we thrifted together, went to movies, got frozen yogurt, and hung out in her patio at night while listening to the coyotes yipping in the desert. She loved our dog Sadie and would drop by to see her. She loved her cats more than anything. She was a bright light with great sarcasm, which we both shared, I will miss that and her great sense of humor. She cared for others with such love. Rest now Andrea, your pain is gone…….
