Abby Linn Andres

1958 - 2021



Andres, Abby Linn, 62, of Largo, FL, formerly of Merritt Island, FL, died peacefully Friday, March 19, 2021 from complications with Covid-19.  She was preceded in death by her parents, Joanne Campbell and Steve Shytle.   She is survived by her loving husband of 33 years, William (Bill) Andres, Jr.; sons, William Andres IV (Katie), and Taylor Andres.  She is also survived by her brother, Steve Shytle (Jennifer); sisters, Justine Green (David), Cynthia Froelich (Todd); stepmother, Patricia Shytle; half-brothers, Edward Shytle, Brian Shytle (Kim), and half-sister, Susan Lahr; as well as many other family members who dearly loved her.

Abby was born in Lebanon, PA but grew up on Merritt Island, FL where she obtained her nursing degree at Brevard Community College, worked at Cape Canaveral Hospital, and met and married the love of her life, Bill.  While Bill was in the Coast Guard, he was reassigned briefly to Strongsville, Ohio.  Soon after, they started their family and baby Will arrived.   Abby missed her Florida families and couldn’t take the cold, so “Saint” Bill (as known to our family) relocated all to Largo, FL.   A few years later, another son arrived, Taylor.  Abby was an amazing and wonderful mom.   Abby and Bill were the most involved parents during Will and Taylor’s school and college years – every sporting event, play, field trip - they were there.   She was the organizer, sponsor, and biggest morale booster for everyone involved.   Her sidekick, Bill, was pretty popular too.  You knew when she arrived to any event, spirits were immediately lifted.

Abby also had a long career with Mease Countryside Hospital in Clearwater, FL as an ER nurse, and much later transitioned to the role of Systems Analyst with BayCare Health System.  She was an exemplary nurse and was always looking for a challenge in her career.   While at BayCare, she made many close, lifelong friends.

Abby’s biggest love was spending time with her family.  She found happiness in putting puzzles together with Bill, making trips to Ohio to see Will and Katie, giving son Taylor a back rub, ridiculously spoiling the family dog Chloe, and planning sibling, niece and nephew trips or activities.  She will always be in our hearts and be greatly missed.

A Celebration of Life service will be held at a later date.

I'm trying hard to see if I can remember what Abby looked like without a smile, and I'm sure it's impossible.   

I worked with her for a time as a programmer at Baycare, and she was always a joy to work with.  She had an infectious smile, laugh, good jokes and a great attitude.
