Evangelist Andrea Catrice (Lewis) Brezzell was born on November 16th. 1966 in Pontiac Michigan to the late Louis Jean Thompkins, biological father Frank Russell and Ira Lazell Thompkins. Andrea who is affectionately known as Trece by her friends and family gave her life to Christ at a very young age. Trece never wavered or faltered her belief in the power of the Almighty. Andrea attended Frank Cody high school in Detroit MI where she was a star in the choir and ran on the track team. After High school Andrea attended Wayne State University where she received her bachelor of arts in criminal justice. Andrea obtained several jobs while she was attending college. She was the secretary of City Temple church for many years and also worked as a paralegal at a prestigious law firm. In 1993 she met the love of her life David A Brezzell who she married on August 5, 1994. From that union, Andrea gave birth to her two loving children Precious and Ira Brezzell. Andrea moved to Huntsville Alabama in 2000 where she pursued her desire to teach. She later started a successful in-home health care business “Anointed Health Care LLC” where she warmed the lives of many individuals. Andrea had a way of touching everyone she encountered with her loving kind spirit, uplifting messages and infectious smile. She was a devoted member of the Eastern star fraternity lodge 778 in Huntsville, Al. Andrea had a 10 year battle with breast cancer in which she never let it get her down. She remained a steadfast fighter with a “keep it moving” attitude. Andrea found a way to pray and even sing for others when she was at her sickest. On July 17th 2020 God called her home. She patterned her life after the love of Christ and her mission was to exude his love, grace, and mercy to others. She is survived by her loving husband David Brezzell, her loving children Precious Brezzell and Ira Brezzell, Her son in law Jonathan Toney, Her beautiful granddaughters Joy Toney and Jewel Toney, her wonderful sister Krystal Harrison, and sisters Pamela Russell, Tamera Russell, Marian Russell, her special niece Kaila, mother in law Joyce Brezzell, sister and brother in laws and a host of family and friends that she adopted in love as her own.

Andrea’s favorite bird was the humming bird hummingbirds are a reminder that our happiness lies within us. Only when we accept that there are bitter parts to life, will we be able to allow our inner peace to grow, which in turn, gives us the freedom to enjoy the sweet side of life.
Just look at the tiny, insignificant hummingbird, who everyday finds delicious nectar deep within the tough, bitter parts of the flower.

Andrea is forever in my heart. She is a picture of strength, faith over fear, courage and love. I know she is a child of God, I know she rests in waiting for that second coming of Christ. I know she is at peace. I also know she is loved and missed. I wished there was something to be said to the hearts that need healing; the only thing that comes in mind is "BUT GOD". Remember the Lord's faithfulness , because Drea would. Remember God is loving, because Drea would. Remember that God will lift you up, give you strength and carry you through ; because Drea would. She will forever be remembered as amazing mother, wife, sister, friend, daughter, neighbor, cousin. Love you Drea! Miss you!

My neighbor that was "that neighbor" you could go to for anything! I loved her, even when she shot it straight from the hip. She passionately loved God and her family beyond the universe. Her spirit is no longer contained in that vessel but freely roaming glory with the God she served. Andrea I miss you, your realness and the liveliness you brought wherever you went. I'll hug on your babies because I would want you to do it for mine. I thank God our paths crossed...I love you.

I had the pleasure of meeting Andrea when we were both homeschooling our children many years ago. She was so energetic and warm, I was immediately drawn to her. Whenever we saw each other, it was so easy to pick up from where we had left off. She was a phenomenal person, I will miss her. Prayers for David, Precious, Ira and her granddaughter as well as her remaining family and friends

Sister Brezzell will truly be missed. When I joined Twilight she took me by the hand and gave me advice and leadership. She was more than an OES Sister, she was a great friend.
My prayers go out to the family and everyone who loved her.
