Doris Anderson Obituary
Doris H. Anderson, 88, passed peacefully into Heaven on June 22, 2011. Born to Anna Rebecca (Sandel) Hare and James Clyde Hare, she was the eldest of five children; Mary Ruth, Alta Bernita, Evelyn May, James Morris, and Wanda Lee. Her maternal lineage has been traced to John Peter Sandel, Sr. who settled South Carolina in the 1750's. Doris was married to Commander (RET) Arthur R. Anderson and had two children, Judith Anderson Hatton and Philip Anderson. All are deceased except her daughter, her daughter's spouse William, two grandchildren, her sister Wanda, and many nieces and nephews and their families.
Doris pursued an education in nursing and left her hometown in Huntsville, TX to join the U.S. Navy Nursing Corp in order to fulfill her purpose as a nurse. She served in World War II and the Korean Conflict. She was awarded the National Defense Service Medal, World War II Victory Medal, the American Campaign Medal, and the Korean Service Medal with Three Stars. She honorably discharged as a lieutenant to start her family. She continued her nursing career at Twenty-nine Palms Marine Corp Base, CA, and then at Seton Medical Center in Austin, TX. She ministered to the sick and hurting in emergency rooms and intensive care units. Doris was a splendid and much-loved nurse who was often called upon to start IVs when no one else could. Doris was a giver, not a taker. She was a member of Hyde Park Baptist Church. She enjoyed travelling, as well as volunteering at the Wildflower Center.
A special thank-you is extended to Fairway Vista, Odyssey Hospice, Ministering Physicians, and the attending medical staff at Scott and White Hospital in Round Rock for the wonderful care she received in her final days.
Visitation will be held from 3:00 to 5:00 p.m. on Sunday, June 26th at Weed-Corley-Fish Funeral Home, North Lamar. Graveside services will be at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, June 27, 2011 at Austin Memorial Park Cemetery.
