She was born March 22, 1938, in Doddington, Isle of Ely, England. She was the firstborn child of George Frederick Garner Edgeley and Alexandra May (Carman) Edgeley.
Andrea married Stephen Vincent Zakis in Kings Lynn, England, on September 24, 1955. After moving often with the military, the family settled down in Cheyenne.
