Andrea (Andy) Kay Martin, 76, a resident of Blue Springs, MO passed away with family by her side on Saturday, June 3, 2023. She was born January 23, 1947 to J.W. and Barbara (Shepard) Fry in Kansas City, MO.
Andy was united in marriage to Bryan Martin on April 2, 1966 in Blue Springs, MO. She spent several years working as a customer service representative in the corrugated box industry where she treasured her work friends. Andy’s creative spirit had a passion for the outdoors, painting, gardening, and most of all, collecting.
With a thirst for knowledge and equality, Andy questioned the status quo and loved a good debate. Andy’s happiest moments were spent at the lake with family. As a young child, she lived in Lake Tapawingo, MO and spent summers as an adult at the Lake of the Ozarks. Her smile shone the brightest as she zipped along on her Sea-Doo.
