Jacqueline "Jackie" Anderson
October 24, 1934 ~ February 20, 2013
LAYTON – Our dearest wife, mother, grandmother and “GG” passed away peacefully Wednesday, February 20, 2013, with her loving husband and family by her side after a long struggle with Alzheimer’s disease.
Jackie was born in Montpelier, Idaho on October, 24, 1934, the cherished and only child to Reed and Maxine Settle Hanson. She grew up in Idaho and graduated from Wendell High School. She went on to graduate from Saint Benedict’s School of Nursing in Ogden, Utah in 1955 with her Registered Nursing degree. While attending Saint Ben’s, she met the love of her life, Charles “Bud” Anderson where he worked as an orderly after serving in the Korean War. They were married in Evanston, Wyoming on September 23, 1955.
Jackie and Bud made their home in Layton, Utah where Jackie worked as a Registered Nurse for Noel Z. Tanner, M.D. at Tanner Memorial Clinic for many years. Her patient’s and co-workers loved her. She also worked at the Hill Air Force Base Hospital and Davis North Medical Center. After “retiring”, she went on to work for Rocky Mountain Care Center and the IRS in Ogden as the infirmary nurse. She enjoyed crocheting and reading. But, being a grandmother and great grandmother was her happiest accomplishment. She was the best grandma and “GG” ever and loved all of her grandchildren dearly.
Jackie is survived by her loving and caring husband and children: Jacqueline Anderson, Marci Hernandez, Reed Anderson, Randy Anderson, Ryan (Debbie) Anderson. She leaves 9 grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren, many cousins and her best friend and “sister”, Jan Stark. She is preceded in death by her parents.
A special thanks to Debbie, Aubrey, Lisa, Heather and Kevin of Hospice for Utah and Keila of Essential Care for their love and tender care.

Jackie was a wonderful cousin and was always looked upon with love within the family. It was obvious that she was loved by everyone who knew her. Her memory will live on in our hearts! Love to Charles, her children and grandchildren.

I am sorry to hear of Mrs. Anderson's passing. She was a wonderful and caring person. I always envied her children for having her as their mother. Your family are in my prayers.
