Headstone for 97-Year-Old Utah Woman Includes Her Fudge Recipe
(Logan, Utah) If you ever find yourself at Logan Cemetery in Utah, look for the gravesite of Wade and Kathryn Andrews. It's not just their final resting place but it's also where people go to get the best homemade fudge recipe.
The Andrews family headstone doesn't only have the usual information on it, but it also contains Kay's signature fudge recipe.
She really loved people. She would write poetry and she would take fudge whenever people got together. -Kathryn's Daughter Janice Johnson to KSTU
Kathryn's husband passed away in 2000. Kay personally chose her husband's images currently on one side of their headstone. During the process of picking out the pictures to represent the life and times of her husband, Kay suggested to her children that when she passed away, not to get out billed by her husband's photos, she wanted her signature fudge recipe posted on their headstone. So when Kathryn passed away in 2019 at 97, her wish was granted.
However, in the very beginning, the headstone had a typo. The headstone called for "one tablespoon of vanilla". One tablespoon of vanilla makes for runny fudge. Kathryn's signature fudge recipe called for one "teaspoon" of vanilla, not one tablespoon.
Today the headstone's typo has been corrected.
