The rose that will forever bloom in our hearts

All of us have much to learn from the too-short yet remarkably substantive life of Andrea Teodosio. A true friend to many, especially to those who might be viewed as outsiders or on the fringe of society, Andrea had a special gift for working with the elderly and underprivileged as well as taking action on important environmental issues.

A graduate of Walsh Jesuit High School and John Carroll University and a 2006 recipient of an Italian Council Scholarship, Andrea was also an athlete, world traveler, lover of music (from Van Morrison to Coldplay) and a passionate devotee of Italian culture. Hoping to become fluent in Italian before her next visit to Italy, Andrea especially cherished time spent with her family. Cooking with her grandmothers was at the top of that list.

At the time of her death in a skiing accident at Snowshoe Mountain in West Virginia, Andrea was a research and strategy development assistant at Hitchcock Fleming and Associates, a marketing communications firm in Akron, Ohio.

The Andrea Rose Teodosio Memorial Foundation has been established in Andrea's memory.
