A life devoted to service

Gum's husband, Carlos, said his wife made to the trip across the railroad tracks onto Goose Creek Road two to three times a day. He has no explanation for what happened on Wednesday.

He said his wife had not felt well just prior to the accident. He believes she was on her way to see her primary care physician about a possible ear infection when the accident happened.

Carlos Gum said his wife had spent nearly 25 years working as a nurse, starting her career in the military. She most recently had worked as a nurse in the University of Virginia Medical Center's endoscopy unit.

"She was aweseome. She was a true nursing angel,'' he said. "She helped people on and off the job. She was there for everybody."

He said his wife was originally from Bridgeport, Conn., but had come to love the Shenandoah Valley and "never wanted to leave." He said Andrea especially loved her flower gardens at the couple's Goose Creek home.

The couple had planned to travel to Lake Moomaw in Bath County this weekend. Carlos Gum said his wife had already packed for the trip.

Carlos Gum said he would like to have more answers from the police investigation, but is not certain he will get them.
