Beloved daughter, sister, mother, aunt and friend Andrea Walker Oss passed peacefully from this life on Saturday, October 7, 2017, in Kearns, Utah.

Andrea was born August 25, 1967, in San Jose, California. She lived in Idaho Falls, Idaho, during her younger years and graduated from Mountain View High School in Orem, Utah in 1985.

The greatest moments of Andrea’s life were the births of her sons Parker and Spencer and she was fiercely devoted to their happiness. She was looking forward to becoming a grandmother in January.

Andrea had incredible empathy and unconditionally loved everyone in her life. She was a loyal friend, a caring aunt and a lover of beautiful things. She worked as a teacher’s aide for Granite School District and loved and was loved by her students.  A member of the LDS Church, she found comfort in the teachings of Jesus.

She is survived by her mother, Layle Erickson; father, Arnold Walker; six sisters, Alison (Dan Kaseda) Walker, Lori (Curt) Chernosky, Cathy (James) Joyner, Carrie (Sage) Anderson, Emily (Brad) Evans, and Elicia (Kurt) Carroll; sons Parker (Rachael) Oss and Spencer Oss; and twenty nieces and nephews. She is preceded in death by her stepfather, Donald Erickson.
