Dr. William and Margaret (Love) McAndrew CVM Student Clubs Endowment
William and Margaret (Love) McAndrew led the way in spirit, talent and
A Harvard graduate, "Dr. Bill" was a humble and skilled surgeon in the NW
and very much a WSU supporter. He was a donor, dreamer and doer, displaying
these capacities through his heart for helping others. His dedication
extended to athletic pursuits, parenting 5 children and pioneering the
Columbia Gorge Appellation as he and his wife, Margaret, built Celilo
Vineyards – one of the first and most successful vineyards in the Gorge.
Along with his practice, planting vines, community support, and various
adventures, you could find him tending to animals as they were brought into
his life through one of his children or his loving wife. If the need arose
to stich up a 4H horse or carry a lonely rescue parrot upon his shoulder
while shopping, he would. He was an interesting, talented and good man.
A graduate of WSU, Margaret was an artist in all respects with rich roots
in the state of Washington. Margaret's legacy of "Love" reflects her
family's generations of WSU graduates that extend to the hard-working
homesteaders of Eastern Washington and the first years of Washington State
Agricultural College. Like her husband, she was one who thought outside the
box, appreciated the land and its animals, and saw the world in its beauty
and need. Margaret, a former teacher of art at King's High School, Enumclaw
High School, Edmonds-Woodway High School and Madrona Elementary, had a deep
love for the Lord. Her love extended into a role she grew into as an
official rescuer of animals in the Puget Sound Region. Amidst her
professional activity, Margaret orchestrated the raising of 5 children – 3
of whom attended WSU – while also participating in strengthening her
community alongside her husband.
William and Margaret's combined spirit, talent, love for animals and the
environment, pursuit of family, and desire to be Godly stewards, cascaded
into various enterprises and their home. As recalled by friends and family,
"Visiting William and Margaret's magical menagerie of rescued animals, busy
children, art, boxes of ‘to-do's' and never-ending lists of ‘work to be
done' was . . . a memorable and cherished experience."
It is in the nature of these two fine human beings, that their family
establishes the "Dr. William and Margaret (Love) McAndrew CVM Student Clubs
Endowment". Both William and Margaret expressed a desire to pass something
along to future generations. Unable to live out all their dreams, this gift
is given with love and good heart as an extension to those possessing a
passion for service to others in areas William and Margaret held dear.
We, the family of Dr. William and Margaret (Love) McAndrew, encourage the
recipients of these funds to continue to dream about and pursue making a
difference in this world -- whether that means through the animals that are
an integral part of an economy or through the plants that grow upon the
land. Use your talents, recipients, and may you remain humble enough to
recognize all good things simply pass through one to another. God is good.
