Andrea L.Solis-Dalrymple, 39, of Port Clinton, passed away after an extended illness, Saturday, Feb. 9, 2013, in Firelands Regional Medical Center, Sandusky, surrounded by her loving family.
Andrea was born on Jan. 19, 1974, in Port Clinton, the only daughter of Steve and Irene (Riojas) Solis. On April 5, 2008, in Port Clinton, at Immaculate Conception Catholic Church, she married David Dalrymple and he survives.
Andrea started her career teaching pre-school at Trinity United Methodist Church, Port Clinton, from there she taught at Barker Junior High School in Sandusky. Most recently, she taught at Bataan Elementary, Port Clinton, as a third grade teacher. Everything she did, above all else, focused on her family and her many students.
Before Andrea got sick she loved anything to do with fitness. She loved her Catholic faith, nature, traveling to all the National Parks, especially Mt. Rushmore in South Dakota, where she had planned to retire. Andrea was very creative doing bead work, making rosaries, cards, cake decorating and puzzles of all kinds. She will be greatly missed by her loving family and friends.
Survivors include her loving husband, David Dalrymple; parents, Steve Solis and Irene Solis; maternal grandparents, Jose T. Riojas and Maria L. (Quiroga) Riojas; mother-in-law, Kathleen Dalrymple; and many loving aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Andrea was preceded in death by paternal grandparents, Renulfo and Refugio Solis; and father-in-law, Walter Dalrymple.
