November 16, 1942 — July 2, 2021

Donald Edward Andwood, 78, passed away on July 2, 2021 in Sandpoint, Idaho surrounded by his family. 


Don was born November 16, 1942 in Jamaica, Queens, New York, the second of three children born to Agnes and Edward Andwood. He grew up in Queens and attended St. John's University, where he earned a BA in English, MS in Library Science, MA in English and a Ed.D in Education. He married Lillian Didwell in 1983. Don's career as a teacher took him to Hawaii where he taught high school English for two years but he spent most of his teaching career in the Brentwood, NY school district as an English teacher and school librarian for 36 years. After being diagnosed with Alzheimer's in 2016 he and Lillian planned to live closer to their grandchildren, and in 2019 moved from their home of over 30 years on Long Island to Idaho.


Don is survived by his wife Lillian; three children: Peter Andwood, Kenneth Andwood, and Mary Claire Shoff; and two sisters: Barbara Mills and Elizabeth Stosuy. Also surviving are his seven grandchildren, five of whom live in Sandpoint.


He was preceded in death by his parents.
