Andrea Kinsella, 57, of Dalzell passed away on March 1, 2021 surrounded by her loved ones and the most beautiful, vibrant sunrise.
Andrea was born in LaSalle on May 5, 1963 to Robert and Connie (Piano) Corrigan. Andrea is survived by her daughter Taylor Kinsella of Chicago; her son Alex (Rikki) Kinsella of Tonica; grandchildren Quinn, Reagan, and Callin; her mother Connie Nadolny of Dalzell; significant other Randy Tieman of Dalzell; sisters Rendi (Todd) Hudson of Naperville, Denise (Jeff) King of Peru, Kim (Tom) Foster of Dekalb; her beloved nieces and nephews and their significant others. She was preceded in death by her father Bob “Three Fingers'' Corrigan.
Andrea will be remembered for her infectious smile, kind eyes and her contagious laugh. She was funny, stubborn as heck, young at heart and incredibly selfless. She lived a life with integrity, gratitude and loving extra hard.
A lover of everything summertime; watching the sunrise with her first cup of coffee, tending plants and making her morning phone calls (consistently in order), suntans and sandy beaches, trips to Ludington, MI and Peoria Chiefs baseball games, pool time with her family and sunny days at Lake Wildwood. She treasured spending time with her children and was the most loving, admired and adored Grammy. Following Connie’s talent, Andrea was a passionate cook - the sort that doesn’t write down recipes and ingredients are measured to taste - her children will spend the rest of their days attempting to replicate her cooking. She had exquisite taste in music, danced the shoulder roll like no one was watching and looked cute as heck doing it. She was a giving mother, never missing a sporting event, school function or supporting her children in any way she could. We would continue writing but characters are limited.
Family and friends are invited to a Celebration of Life on Saturday March 6, 2-5:00pm at the Hurst Funeral Home in La Salle with a prayer service at 5:00 PM with the Very Rev. Paul Carlson officiating. Social distancing will be observed and masks are required.
Donations should be made to American Cancer Society.
Once Covid restrictions are lifted, there will be an outdoor memorial celebration.
