Georgene “Genie” Andrews, age 76, passed away at home surrounded by her loving family on March 19, 2021.
Genie was born November 23, 1944 in Greenville, Texas to Sara & George Uthe. She moved to Boise as a young child where she was raised by her mother and grandmother. Genie graduated Meridian High School in 1962 and went on to attend Stephens College in Columbia, Missouri. She enjoyed a rewarding career as a medical administrator for forty years, working tirelessly to ensure the success of numerous medical practices. She cared deeply about her colleagues and the patients they served.
Genie cherished family above all else and especially loved her role as “Grammy” to her 13 grandchildren. She embraced holidays, meticulously decorating for each one and creating a festive environment to be enjoyed by her family. She had a very generous spirit and often included friends in her holiday gatherings who didn’t have family to celebrate with.
Genie is survived by her husband of thirty-eight years, Howard “Lew” Andrews of Meridian, ID; children Tony (Michelle) Teutsch, Rick Teutsch, Howie (Dayna) Teutsch, Jodie (Steve) Brady, Melanie (Jeff) Peters, and Scot Andrews; and grandchildren Mackenzie, Zachary, Peyton, Sam, Trevor, Riley, Megan, Carly, Alisha, Malori, Lauren, Brooke and Brendan. She is preceded in death by her mother Sara Uthe, grandmother Alma Long, father George Uthe and daughter-in-law Anna Teutsch.
A celebration of Genie’s life will be held at Bowman Funeral Parlor, 10254 W. Carlton Bay Dr., Garden City, ID on Friday May 28, 2021 at 3:00 PM.

Genie was the best friend another mother could have. Her openness, honesty, sincerity, curiosity, patience and concern for others was summed when when she shared her deepest Christian values during one of our many phone conversations over past decade, “I have tried to love others”.
I miss her dearly.
