    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.”

    Andrea was a fantastic artist and accomplished potter. Her pottery depicted Native American art found throughout the Canyonlands and was always purchased shortly after she finished them. She loved hiking, playing cards, and being with her family.

    She is survived by her sons, Toby J. Winters, and Gregory L. Winters of Moab; sisters, Glenna Ruby, Kenna L. 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.

    A viewing will be held Thursday, Aug. 25 from 6-8 p.m. at the Spanish Valley Mortuary. Funeral services will be held Friday, Aug. 26 at 10 a.m. at the LDS Stake Center on Locust Lane. Interment will be at the Grand Valley Cemetery.
