Kelly Louise (Seiler) Andrews, of Coopersburg, PA passed away on Sunday, December 11, 2022,
at St. Luke’s Bethlehem Campus, surrounded by her loving family after a very courageous 10-month battle with cancer. Born on August 1, 1967, at St. Luke’s Hospital, Fountain Hill, to Gale D. (Moyer) Seiler and the late Ernest M. Seiler III. She was the loving wife of James F. Andrews for 26 years and the loving, devoted mother of the lights of her life, sons Christopher and Michael. Kelly was a 1985 graduate of Northern Lehigh High School, a 1988 graduate of St. Luke’s School of Nursing, and a 1994 graduate of Cedar Crest College where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Nursing. During her 34-year career as a Registered Nurse at St. Luke’s University Health Network, Kelly touched the lives of thousands of patients, their families, and her colleagues. However, Kelly always told her sons that her “job” was to raise them to be the best that they could be, always reminding them that they were “student athletes” not athlete students. Her greatest joys in life were spending time at the beach with her family and
attending her sons’ academic and athletic events. Her presence was always known at those games by her distinctive whistle from the stands. She spent countless hours attending Christopher and Michael’s sporting events while they participated in sports with the Southern Lehigh Youth Athletic Association, Lehigh Valley Baseball Academy, Southern Lehigh HS, and
most recently Monmouth University. She was a past officer of the Southern Lehigh HS Boys Booster Clubs for both basketball and baseball.
