Shirley J. Anderson

September 9, 1924 ~ April 8, 2021 (age 96)


Beloved Wife, Mother to three sons, Grandmother to two boys and Great Grandmother to three girls… returned Home to *her Lord and Savior* this week…. after 96+ active years living life on her terms. She loved her pets… be they cat or dog and loved all types of wildlife especially orangutans and Bugsy, the wild rabbit that made her yard his home. Thoroughly enjoyed dabbling in Real Estate and campaigning for the ‘best candidate’, regardless of the Party. Lifelong member of The First Church of Christ, Scientist. Factory worker assembling WWII supplies. An alumnus of the University of Wisconsin and its Field Hockey Team. Masters Degree from Texas A&M in Counseling. An editor for The Family Circle magazine in NYC. Wife to Andy. Mother and carpool driver, Realtor and Counselor. Caretaker of a prolific yard and freely shared her flowers and plants with friends. Loved dips in her pool and eating pizza at Rossi’s with family and friends.

She’ll be missed at her favorite lunch counters….. We’ll miss you Mom… your passion for life, our conversations, your road trips….God blessed each of us with you!

Lovingly, Your Family.
