Andrea Erlandson Mackie
Andrea Erlandson Mackie, 55, passed away on June 28, 2022 after an abrupt battle with
pancreatic cancer. Born May 19, 1967 of Dorchester, Massachusetts, Andrea attended North Quincy High School and went on to earn a nursing degree from the Massachusetts College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. Andrea found her calling as a Registered Nurse at the Suffolk County House of Correction. She treasured her role as a nurse and took pride in caring for absolutely everyone.
Always giving, forever selfless – Andrea was innately artistic, expressing her love through a
multitude of talents; creating intricate costumes, throwing extravagant parties; never lacking in imaginative thought. Her immense generosity poured through everyone she encountered. Every kid knew they could stay at Aunty Andi’s, and every friend knew they had a shoulder. Andrea had a heart the size of a hockey rink. She was hilarious, loquacious, over the top, and unrelenting. She endured, one day at a time, and never gave up. Andrea was the friend, the cousin, the aunt, the daughter, and the sister who provided unconditionally. She made one thing abundantly clear, above all else – she was Mom. A once in a lifetime woman gave us
something that will last forever, the greatest gift in life… beautiful, pure, complete love.
Andrea is survived by her mother Elsa Cook and younger sister Nicole Linville of Weymouth, and her sons John and Michael Mackie of Boston.
Andrea’s vivacious spirit is forever with us, as she reunites with her beloved father Roger Cook in eternal peace.
