    Andrea (Walker) Winters, 67, passed away Friday, Aug. 19, 2011 at University Hospital in Salt Lake City, Utah.

    Andrea was born March 5, 1944 to Lester “Bud” and Elfleda (Barker) Walker in Moab, Utah, where she grew up and graduated from Grand County High School. On Dec. 6, 1963, she married Duke Winters in Mesa County, Colo.

    She had a great love of nature and loved being an amateur archeologist, finding rocks that she could make into jewelry. She was known by many as “Mother Nature.”

Bridges, Judy Tangreen, LaVona Groff, all of Moab, Nancy Knell of Bountiful, and Sally Puska of Thomton, Texas; a brother, Ronald Walker of West Jordan; two granddaughters, Katie and Megan Winters; and long-time friend and companion, Frank Walden.

    She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, Duke, in 1999, and sister, Dixie (Pinkey Hawks) Bass.
