HAMILTON -Andrée Audette Stevenson, 92 years old, passed away at The Remington in Hamilton on January 15, 2020. Andrée was born in Glen Ridge, New Jersey on March 11, 1927 to Helen and Louis Audette.
She married William (Bill) Paxton Stevenson on October 2, 1948. She is survived by three daughters; Wendy (Donn) Livoni of Hamilton, MT, Karen of Geneva, Switzerland and Annie (Keith) Knudsen of Albany, California.
Bill's work took the family to Holland (for five years) and Switzerland (for ten years). Andrée's true love, besides her family, was the mountains. Her greatest joy was climbing to the top of the peaks in the Swiss Alps in the summer and skiing down the glaciers in the winter. Her summit of the Muntsch was one of her proudest moments. After living in Switzerland, Andrée and Bill retired to New Hampshire where she continued to climb the local peaks and ski three days a week. When Bill passed, Andrée moved to Hamilton to be closer to family.
Survivors include her three daughters and her five grandchildren; Adrienne, Casey, Olivia, Sydney and Callie as well as her two great-grandchildren; Hazel and Rose. Andrée will always be in their hearts.
The family would like to say a special thanks to the caring staff of Memory Care at the Remington, to Luisita Loveridge for her love and compassion given to Andrée, to all the wonderful people who helped her in the Sapphire Lutheran Community and to the Marcus Daly Hospice.
