Andrea Lashawn Turner (Sweet Pea) was a loving mom, daughter, granddaughter, sister, niece, cousin, and friend. Andrea passed away suddenly on Monday, November 29, 2022, at Inova Hospital in Lorton, Virginia.
Andrea was born on February 17, 1983, and was baptized at an early age in Zion Baptist Church. Andrea graduated from Fairfax County public schools. She received her certificate in Communications and worked briefly as a health aid.
Andrea loved her two sons so much that she would go to the moon and back for them. She was proud to be their mom. She loved spending time with her family and would be right there if they needed her. She was the life of the party. She loved listening to music, watching comedy shows, dancing, and singing. She loved to sing the song “Silver and Gold”. She was a fashionista; if her hair and nails were not right, then nothing was right.
Andrea, Sweet Pea will be sorely missed. A piece of our circle has been broken but she will forever live in our hearts. No more pain Pea, you don’t have to fight anymore, take your rest and as you always knew; we got your boys.
