On February 16, 2018, we lost our mother Johnnie Kate Anderson. She left her remaining family S. Bud Anderson (Suzanne Lent) James E. Anderson (Cris Earley) Carolyn Ashworth, Cindy Rose Essary (Dale), Robbie S. Anderson (Cecilia), daughter-in-law Carol Anderson, 11 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren to wander these lands alone. Preceding her in death, her husband Herman Anderson and son Carley Anderson. She gave her children a foundation to live by, faith in God, kindness, fairness, honesty, plus a great smile to remember her by. She was born in Philadelphia, MS, in 1924, and passed away in Glendale, AZ, where she lived for almost 60 years.
