Andrea (Ferrazzano) Chauvin, beloved wife, mother, GaGa, sister and friend passed away peacefully, with her family by her side at Hope Health Hospice on January 23, 2023.

Andrea has left her mark with all she has met, and we will never forget her fierce personality and the love she had for her family who always came first. She always stood up for what was right, loved spending time with her family and never let her fight slow her down.

She also survived by brother Ben Ferrazzano (wife Gail), sisters Peggy Barkett (husband Ely) & Betty-Lou Ferrazzano-Martin (husband Jack), along with many friends, cousins, nieces & nephews who all trying to come to terms with this unfathomable loss.

    To the Chauvin & Ferrazzano families: Andrea was one of my very first childhood friends, neighbor, and classmate all through school. I can't think of a time that she didn't have a smile on her face! We couldn't help but smile just being around her! We drifted our different ways in adulthood, had our families, and lived our lives, and, other than occasional class reunions we never really reconnected. Reading about her passing brings me back to our childhood days when life was simple and we could just have fun together. One never forgets where he or she comes from. May you find some comfort in your memories of the many happy times with her and the knowledge that others are thinking of her as well.

    Mom, you were a staple in my life, I will never forget you yelling for Adrienne and I from the bottom of the stairs, kicking us out of the house I can hear you saying it's too damn nice out to for a bike ride. You'd make us ham and cheese roll ups and scratching out backs after you got home from the Warf Tavern. Screaming at the Red Sox or Giants in the living room cheering them on or telling them how they screwed up! Yours smile and laugh always lite up the room. You have always been and always will be my inspiration to keep fighting. I love you, we got it from her w.

    I can not even begin to comprehend the loss your entire family is trying to cope with. Andrea was one of the most amazing women I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. Working at The Wharf Tavern with her over several years will always be one of my fondest memories. We created a family there, with long hours and many holidays that bonded us. Regardless of the horror we faced on the daily, she was always there with a smile and an abundance of laughs to get us through the day. I'll never forgot when she came back from Florida and we attended one of the 4th of July concerts, she was bursting with excitement to tell me that Adrienne was expecting! Her family meant the world to her and there was never a shortage of stories for her to tell about each and every one of you. Her grand babies meant the world to her and you could feel the love radiate off of her every time she talked of them. This world was a brighter place because of her, and she will be missed dearly. Richard, Adrienne, and Ben, I am deeply sorry for your loss and I wish you all nothing but peace and happiness while you navigate this new path in life. Andrea - I love and miss you so much already.
