Obituary for Ruth McVety (Andrews)

Ruth  McVety (Andrews)
Ruth I. McVety (Andrews), a lifelong resident of West Haven, passed away peacefully at home, surrounded by loved ones, on August 7, 2018. She was the beloved wife of 71 years of the late Walter W. McVety, Sr. Born in West Haven, on July 3, 1924, she was the daughter of the late Joseph August Andrews and the late Mary (Erickson) Ursini.

She is survived by her son Robert McVety (Judy) of Hamden, daughter Judith Mandry (Ray) of Osprey, Florida, grandchildren Brenna McVety, Deidre McVety Bauco, Kyla Wedsworth, Kate Donahue, Erik Turnquist and Kirsten Grills, and a brother, John Andrews. In addition, she is survived by her great grandchildren, a great great grandchild, nieces and nephews. Ruth was pre-deceased by daughter Kathleen Donahue and son Walter W. McVety, Jr.

An accomplished artist and painter, doll maker and quilter, Ruth was also a talented cake decorator who made beautiful cakes for family weddings and occasions. She was an avid gardener and won an award from the City of West Haven for the appearance of their home and gardens.

A loving mother and grandmother, Ruth embraced us all and elevated us by her example, loving family, in all its various forms and personalities, with an open heart and gentle acceptance. May we always remember the lessons she taught us of approaching each day with purpose, hard work and above all, loyalty and love.
