Obituary for Andrew George Nau
Andrew George Nau, age 93, of Caldwell, Ohio, died Thursday, June 5, 2008, at his home with his sons at his side. Andrew was recently admitted twice to the hospital with pneumonia and hypertension, and due to his advanced age, was unable to recover. Thanks to the help of caregivers Eola, Sally, and Linda, the family was able to give him the gift of staying in his own home for the past several years. Despite his dementia, the family was blessed that he could still say three simple words: I love you. He was born November 13, 1914, at his family home in Enoch Twp., Noble County, Ohio. He was the seventh child of the late John and Philomena Rose Hupp Nau. He is also preceded in death by his wife, Margaret Mary Burkhart Nau, who died March 22, 2006, and whom he married September 19, 1939. Mr. Nau was retired from Union Carbide, and he was a farmer. He was a member of St. Stephen Catholic Church, Caldwell. He had quick and funny stories that will be missed by all of his extended family. In addition to his parents and his wife, he is preceded in death by a toddler son, Harry E. Nau, who died August 8, 1949, of cystic fibrosis; one daughter, Theresa M. Nau Braddock, who died September 15, 2005; and his siblings, Ida E. Burkhart, Therese M. Shilinski, Cora K. Meyers, Amelia P. Fogle, Edward J. Nau, and Helen A. Miller. Surviving are two sons, Herman (Betty) Nau of Caldwell and Carl (Bonnie) Nau of Marietta; one son-in-law, Gary Braddock of Mt. Vernon; six grandchildren, Netti (David) Halsey, Renee (Mike) Hupp, Joyce Rhodes, Sheila (Bryan) Rhodes, Mike (Brandee) Nau, and Phil Braddock (Monica Ware); two sisters-in-law, Marie Burkhart Miller of Temperanceville and Marj Badurina Burkhart of Columbus; one brother-in-law, Herman Burkhart of Woodsfield; and 10 great-grandchildren, including Elisa Marie Halsey, who shares his birthday. Friends may call Friday, June 6, 2008, from 2-8PM at McVay-Perkins Funeral Home, 416 East Street, Caldwell, where a Christian Scripture Service will follow at 8PM. Funeral Liturgy with Mass will be observed Saturday, June 7th at 10AM at St. Stephen Catholic Church, Caldwell, with Father Wayne Morris officiating. Burial will follow at Mt. Olivet Cemetery, Caldwell.
