Mrs. Anderson was born in Watertown, TN, but spent the majority of her life in Lebanon. It was in Lebanon that she met her husband-to-be and began a loving relationship that spanned more than five decades. Though shy and soft-spoken, her kindness and generosity touched the lives of all that she met. Mrs. Anderson worked briefly as a press room operator at Precision Rubber, then helped to shape the lives of many children courtesy of the childcare that she offered from her home. Her warm smile and kind heart will be missed by all who knew her.
