Beatrice Farr Anderson passed away Wednesday, October 31, 2012, in Idaho Falls. She was surrounded by her three daughters. Known to all as Trixie; she was 87.
Trixie was the widow of W. Joe Anderson; and the mother of Laura Crugnale of Newberg, Oregon, Linda Hendon of Lake Oswego, Oregon, and Janet Davis of Bainbridge Island, Washington. She was the grandmother to four grandchildren, Joe Davis, Nina Davis, Elle Crugnale and Ercoli Crugnale. She also leaves, and was loved by, the husbands of her daughters, Ercolino Crugnale, Rick Hendon and Water Davis; as well as nieces and a nephew, most of whom reside in Idaho Falls.
Trixie was born to Beatrice and Leroy Farr in 1925 in Idaho Falls.
She attended the University of Washington, where she met her future husband, Joe Anderson. Upon Joe's completion of law school, they returned to Idaho Falls to begin his law practice and a family. They were active socially and civically in the community.
Trixie's personal life revolved around her family and her many friends. She was a gracious hostess and her great dinner parties were legend. She had a famous sense of humor and was always quick to laugh, even and especially when the humor was at her own expense.
A memorial event will be held a later date.
Memorial donations can be made to the Museum of Idaho, 200 N. Eastern Ave., Idaho Falls, ID 83402.
