Andrea Nichols Kieran of Waco, Texas, died on October 25, after valiantly facing cancer. She was 61.

She was the loving daughter of the late David and Dorothy Ritter of Vineyard Haven, and sister of Kevan Nichols of Vineyard Haven. She was also the special aunt of Kevan Nichols of Oak Bluffs, Jill Taney of Newport, Kentucky, and Melissa Mahoney of Aquinnah.

Funeral services were held in Waco.

She may have lived in Waco, but Pennacook Avenue in Oak Bluffs always held a special place in her heart.
