Charlotte Ann Andervich 1943 - 2015
Charlotte Andervich passed away on Friday, October 9, 2015, at Providence Medical Center. She defeated cancer once, but was unable to do so the second time the disease came to her. While we will miss her every day, we take comfort that she is no longer in pain, and that she awaits her family and friends in Heaven.
Charlotte Ann (Wuertley) Andervich was born on April 4, 1943 in Belleville, Illinois to E. Howard and Ruth (Foulk) Wuertley. In 1947, the family moved to Summersville, Missouri, to the family farm. After graduating from high school Charlotte attended St John's School of Nursing in Springfield. She graduated in 1965 and followed her mother's footsteps into nursing, becoming a registered nurse.
Shortly after graduation from St. John's, she moved to Kansas City to begin her nursing career, most of which was at Providence Medical Center, where she worked for the last 37 years of her career. She was a nurse in the Outpatient Department for many years.
Charlotte was also an active volunteer. She became involved in Wyandotte County 4-H when her children joined in 1980, and remained active long after they graduated from the program. She was a Community Leader for Chaparral 4-H Club for more than 30 years, a long-time leader for the 4-H Horse Project in Wyandotte County, and served for many years on the board of the Wyandotte County Fair Association.
Charlotte married David Andervich in 1969 in Kansas City, Kansas, and they had been married for 46 years at the time of her passing.
Charlotte is survived by her husband, David, of the home; daughter Nancy of Kansas City, Kansas, and daughter Stephanie of Cleveland, Missouri; siblings Muriel (Walter) Shriver of Ozark, Missouri; Charles (Brenda) Wuertley of Summersville, Missouri; and Donald Wuertley of Ozark, Missouri; and seven nieces and nephews.
