It is with deep regret and sorrow that I have to announce the passing of my dear
wife and cherished friend, Andria Lynette Hall Sizemore earlier today, Monday, January
12, 2009.

Thank you for your prayers for Andria and our family during this incredibly challenging period as our sister has now abandoned her courageous battle with cancer to find peace in the arms of the Lord Jesus Christ.

Andria has been called home to be with the Lord she loved so deeply. She had such a pure heart for God, and our family will do everything to ensure that her legacy – her love for the Lord and His people and her inspiring spirit of excellence – continues to live on.

In her M.E.D.I.A. career, she Ministered, Edified and Divinely Inspired All … to the glory of God, and we as a family will ensure that her important ministry work will continue.

We continue to trust God for as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are His ways higher than our ways.

We welcome your continued prayers for Andria’s immediate and wider family as well as her dear friends.

We will keep you posted via email on plans to celebrate the life of Andria Lynette Hall Sizemore.

Thank you for your love.

Blessings,

Clayton Sizemore

  1. Peace and Comfort to you and the family during this time. I met Andria only once at Corinthian Baptist Church in Jersey City and from that one visit I could sense her beautiful spirit and sincerity. I know she was loved by many.

  2. I was saddened to hear of Andria’s passing last night as I watched Chronicle (Boston). She was truly an amazing woman when she was on there.

    May God bless her and may God bless your family through this time. You will be in my prayers.

  3. When I first started working at CNN in Atlanta I met Andria and we became friends. She was like a big sister to me. She introduced me to Berean Christian Church in Georgia. We kept in touch even after she moved back to Jersey. The last time I saw Andria, I was setting up my booth at the Harlem Book Festival. I heard someone call my name, turned around and it was Andria. She was there with her book too. She looked beautiful, healthy and full of life. I will always remember her that way.

  4. Our prayers are with you and your family in the loss of your wife and friend, Andria.

  5. Andria,

    My sister friend. You are no longer in pain or discomfort, but rather in the loving arms of the lord. We all love and miss you terribly.

  6. To the Sizemore and Hall families,

    I extend my deepest sympathy at your loss. I was blessed to have been interviewed by Andria when she was still broadcasting on WMCA on “The Walk at Work.” We spent a wonderful time together and spoke of career management strategies from the Christian perspective.

    I will especially remember her generosity, the spark of life that was always present and her love of our Lord, which is now her reward.

  7. Andria was indeed a wonderful person. I thank God daily for the honour of knowing Andria Hall and her immediate family. The wonderful time we spent at those CMEx Conferences will be treasured by all of us. I know that the “CMEx Xpressions” treasure Andria a whole lot.

    Andria, we are comforted knowing the you are in the place of eternal worship with the God of this universe of whom you loved so much. He was the inspiration of you ‘Walk’ on this earth.

    Love you very much and I WILL MISS YOU AT CMEx.
    Oh, I still can see you singing “I believe the Children are the future” at CMEx

  8. I know Andria’s sister, Akosua, from work. I had the honor of meeting Andria once through Akosua. May your faith be a pillar of strength for you in this difficult time.

  9. I was proud that one of our own (New Paltz State University) students had entered the broadcasting field. I entered radio with Inner City Broadcasting Corporation (WBLS & WLIB) and Andria Hall had went into television. Her husband, Clayton and I were on the basketball team at New Paltz and he was considered a top photographer in school. I’ve heard throughout the years that they both became top professionals in their careers. I remember seeing Andria on news-4 in NY on the anchor desk and it made me proud. Time, life, family, and careers pull individuals into different directions. I wish I had the opportunity to have spent many days with the Sizemore’s. May God bless you Andria, aka (On-dee,) I have a picture of you at a basketball game intensely watching Clayton on the court. Thanks for always being part of the team…

  10. Andria was truly a beautiful person both inside and out. I was honoured to have met Andria and Clayton during the 2003 and 2004 CMEx conferences while interning with Counterpart International. Andria inspired me as a woman of God and demonstrated on a personal level how one’s spirituality could be interwoven into one’s career. As a fellow Journalist , and a Christian , I felt connected to this beautiful woman on numerous levels. While I am truly saddened at her family’s and the world’s loss I am comforted by the knowledge that she is indeed present with the Lord. My sympathy goes out to you Clayton, your children and the wider family circle. I can’t even begin to fathom your loss but God does – so continue to lean on and trust him.
