Andrea Jan Landrum

Andrea “Sissy” Jan Landrum, of Maiden, NC, passed peacefully in her sleep on January 8, 2024.  She was born on August 17, 1950 in Newark, NJ, and even though she lived in Alabama and spent the last fourteen years of her life in North Carolina, she always considered herself a Jersey Girl.

Andrea is preceded in death by her husband, Ben Landrum, Sr., her brothers Glenn Toner, Sr.and wife Donna, James Toner, Sr., Wayne Gibson, Richard Gibson, Jr., and David Gibson, Sr., nephew Glenn Toner, Jr., and her parents, John Toner, and Emma Gibson and husband RichardGibson, Sr.

She also is survived by many friends that she loved and considered family, especially Suelina Pieczynski.  

Andrea lived her life with open and honest faith.  She truly lived by the Word of God, and sought to influence others to know Christ as she did.  She was known for her generosity, never knowing a stranger or letting a person in need go without when she had something to give. She often saw signs of God around her, and was quick to share them with others.

Andrea was an artist, adept at painting, drawing, doodling, writing, and sewing. She was a shrewd business woman, owning and operating several thrift stores. Her greatest work was caring for her family and her friends.  She enjoyed cooking for family, and always had a hot pot of coffee ready for everyone, and chocolate chip cookies for her grandchildren.  Coffee with deep conversation was a joy for her.  

She loved her family, and encouraged them to follow their dreams; because with Jesus, anything is possible.

A celebration of life service will be held at Pearl Baptist Church, 4657 NC-27, Iron Station, NC, 28080 at 3:30pm on Monday, January 22, with visitation until 5:30pm to follow.
