Anderson; Dorothy Fanny

November 4, 1927 – April 24, 2015.

It is with love and wonderful memories that we announce the death of our Mother, Dorothy Fanny Anderson (nee Wilson), age 87, who passed away on April 24, 2015 in Chilliwack after a long illness. Dorothy is survived by her loving children Bob (Cheryl) and Barbara (David) and was pre-deceased by her husband Albert, brother Larry (“Manny”) Wilson, and parents Alec Wilson and Sarah Wilson (nee Brodie).

Dorothy was born and grew up in Vancouver where she developed a love for the “salt chuck” (as she used to call it). Later, she met Andy, was married in 1952, and moved to Chilliwack in 1954. There she enjoyed being a stay-at-home mother to Bob and Barb. She worked later as Executive Assistant at the School Board and Fraser Health. She was a keen curler, crossword puzzle champion and active in Kinettes. She was always an “animal person,” and enjoyed the antics of her succession of dogs Patsy, Penny, Fred, Fiona, Trixie and Paddy as well as the personalities of her cats Charles (“the swine cat”) and Chloe. We treasured her as a mother as she supported us in all our endeavors, achievements, and misadventures and imbued in us the qualities of integrity, hard work, achievement, love of books, animals, and language. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Humane Society. Henderson’s Funeral Home in care of arrangements, 604-792-1344
