Andrea was the second oldest of the seven children her mother had, the oldest daughter. She loved helping her mother cook, clean and take care of her younger siblings. Andrea spent most of her childhood in San Manuel, AZ and graduated from San Manuel High School in 1981.
On February 14, 1986, Andrea met her soulmate, David J. Acevedo of Oracle, AZ. They got married on November 14, 1987 in Oracle, AZ. Shortly after the newlyweds moved to Carlsbad, NM, where David started his career with the Waste Isolation Pilot Plant and has worked there for the last 34 years.
On July 24, 1991, Andrea’s mother passed away leaving Andrea’s youngest brother Andrew J. Weisner at the age of 10. Andrea and David took in Andrew and raised him as their own. On March 24, 1992 (less than a year later), Andrea and David welcomed a beautiful baby girl, Briann Alyssa (Acevedo) Stevens into the world. On July 13, 2000 (8 years later) they also welcomed a precious baby boy, David Isaiah Acevedo. Andrea enjoyed the time she had at home being a housewife and raising her children which were her pride and joy.
Andrea’s cooking was known by her family and friends as her ultimate art. She was such a giving person and loved to bless people with food and baked goodies.
