Andrea Gates Obituary

Andrea passed away at home in Midland, Ontario on December 13, 2023, at the age of 61. She is survived by her husband, Grant Frodsham, her son Tyler Frodsham, both of Midland, and her younger brother Danny Gates of Vancouver.  Andrea will be sadly missed by her family and many close friends. Having spent most of her childhood and teenage years in Brights Grove (Sarnia), Ontario, Andrea studied English at the University of Western Ontario, and throughout her life was never far from a favourite book.  A thoroughly unique individual, Andrea could light up a room with her presence and sense of humour. Empathetic and insightful, she developed and maintained a wide variety of deep and supportive friendships. These characteristics served her well in her career as an employment consultant. Her son Tyler was her focus from the day he was born, and her proudest moments over the past few years were recounting his hard work setting up his own trucking business. Throughout, her devoted husband Grant was her rock and source of laughter, supporting her through thick and thin.

Visitation for family and friends will be held at the Paul F. Kent Funeral Home, 16 King Street North, Cookstown on Saturday February 3 from 1 – 4 p.m.
