When I was a youngster, I, like most everyone, had a "supply store" where I went for candy, gum, baseball cards, and other necessities of childhood. My store was Andrews Grocery (in Muskegon). At the time, I had no idea who owned the store or cared. A few years ago, poring through old city directories, I looked up my favorite store. I saw it was owned by Beatrice Andrews. She was one of three different persons behind the counter and never acted like the owner. She was fairly tall, rather low profile, but in control (a necessity in a business frequented by teenagers and pre-teens). She sold the store in 1967 and it closed a year later. About 20 years ago, I saw her working in a convenient store in Muskegon Heights and said I remembered her. She was gracious and said she remembered me, too. Remarkable for seeing someone after 25 or 30 years. After 1993, she was no longer in the directory, so I'm pretty sure she was the Beatrice Andrews in question. Some of the other comments about her were interesting, especially about her coming up to Montague, an area with which I've become quite familiar in the last several years. I hope you're still on line after all these years and that my comments have relevance.
