February 13, 1942 – April 17, 2012

Jeannette Anderson, beloved wife of Ray Anderson of Balfour, passed away in Calgary, AB on Tuesday, April 17, 2012 at the age of 70 years.

Jeannette, affectionately known to her family as ‘Ma’, was born in Vulcan, Alberta. She was the oldest of three children born to Pete and Florence Ewashen. She grew up on the farm and graduated from High School in Lundbreck in 1960. Jeannette received her teaching degree from the University of Calgary, and shortly thereafter she married Raymond Anderson on May 12, 1962. Ray and Jeannette had two children and remained in Calgary throughout their working years. In 1992, they moved to Balfour, BC, where they enjoyed the good life together for nearly 20 years. Jeannette was an avid volunteer, and enjoyed music tremendously. She became known to many as a very dear friend and will be missed in the community.

Besides her loving husband of fifty years, Jeannette is survived by two children, Doug Anderson (Tasha) of Calgary, Jolayne Anderson (Brenda) of Cochrane; her loving dog Chester; her brother Ken Ewashen (Troy); her sister Gladys (Fred) Kozlow and her two nephews Tory Ewashen and Trevor Kozlow. She was predeceased by her parents Pete and Florence Ewashen.
