Andrea S. Lane, 64, of Central Street, Ipswich, died early Saturday, October 16, 2021 in Peabody following her brief illness.

Andrea was born in Boston on December 25, 1956, the daughter of the late Franklin J. Lane and Susan C. (Friend) Lane. She was raised in Winchester, later in Hingham, and graduated from Dana Hall School in Wellesley in 1974. She attended Iowa State University, returning home to study elementary education and receiving her undergraduate degree from Tufts University, and her Masters from Smith College.  Over the years, Andrea (Andi) held a variety of jobs. She worked at the Swan Boats of the Boston Commons, as a teacher at The Atrium School and within the Salem School district, as well as tutoring students.  Andi had a huge love of animals.

She brought her horse with her and taught riding lessons there.  She was an active member of the Ascension Memorial Church in Ipswich, serving as an Acolyte, regularly volunteering at the Dinner Bell, and working with parish youth. She was ServSafe certified and helped at church functions in this capacity. She also drove senior parishioners to appointments.  Andi loved children and will be remembered for her constant generosity, willingness to help others, her sense of humor, as well as her bright smile.
