Andrea “Andi” Mae Rouse, age 28, of Appleton
On the early morning of Thursday, July 8th, 2021, at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Appleton , Andi earned her wings to fly with the Angels and be with her Savior in Heaven.
Andi was born September 20, 1992, in Marinette, Wisconsin to Scott Rouse and Kristina Wright. She graduated from Appleton East High school in 2011. Andi worked for several different places as a server at Perkins Family Restaurant, The Bar and at Victorias Italian Cuisine. She worked as a customer service representative for Alta Resources, Convergys, and West Corporations. She also worked as a warehouse associate for Englewood Marketing group.
Andi’s favorite job was being a Mom to little Gems. Gemma Mae was the light in Andi’s and her Mini Me. Andi Loved Gemma so much, Gemma had Andi wrapped around her finger. Their Love was inseparable. They enjoyed everything from shopping, singing, dancing, being goofy, watching movies , and caring for their pets (Patrick, Percy, and Gizmo) together. The list goes on.
As a beloved Mom, Daughter and Sister, Andi is survived by her parents, Scott (Tracie) Rouse of Green Bay, Kristina (Doug) Wright of Appleton; her Beautiful Daughter Gemma Miller; Sister Ally Klippel (Dana Seidl) of Appleton, Sister Abby (Cody) Dewitt of Appleton, Sister Alivia Rouse of Marquette MI, Sister Ataysha Wright (Michael Sewell) of Appleton, Step Sister Karisa Paul (Macario Sierra) of Green Bay, Step Brother Tyler Paul of Green Bay and Step Brother Levi (Jackie) Wright of Appleton; Nieces and Nephews, Aiden and Jordan Dewitt, Elam Klippel, Zoey, Robby, Gracie, Lucas and Isaac Wright; Grandparents, Robert (Laverne) Rouse of Peshtigo, Leon (Marilynn) Olson of Peshtigo, Kathy Herlache of Algoma, Don (Evelyn) Wright of North Augusta South Carolina; Many Aunts, Uncles, Cousins and Friends. Andi is proceeded in death by her Grandmother Martha Rouse, her Great Grandmother Hazel Peterson and her Uncle Art Zeitler.
Andi cherished her time with her family and friends. All who knew Andi say it best when they describe her as having the biggest heart. Andi had so much love to give. She would always see the good in people and would always give her support. Andi would give the biggest hugs to those she loved and she had the most contagious adorable laugh that would cheer anyone up. Her smile would light up any room. She touched so many people in this world, the world is a better place because of her. Her family and friends can attest to that as they were an important part of her life. Every moment spent with her was indeed special and never to be forgotten. She enjoyed so many things with her family, from game nights, nights out on the town, vacations, time on the lake fishing, family river floats and endless activities together.
Andi was not without her own adversity and struggles. Unfortunately, addiction was also a part of her life. The addiction chains are broken setting her free and can now live- at peace in paradise with her Savior.
Mark 5:34 Jesus said to her “Daughter, your faith has healed you. Go in peace and be free from your suffering”.
