Our dear sister, Kellie Evon Anderson, 52, passed away at Stormont-Vail Regional Healthcare Center in Topeka, Kan., on Friday, Sept. 14, 2012.
Kellie was born Jan. 20, 1960, in Idaho Falls, the oldest child of Nat E. "Bud" Anderson and Carol Joan Anderson.
Kellie graduated from Idaho Falls High School and attended Boise State University, where she studied business and design.
Growing up, Kellie enjoyed the time spent water skiing, fishing and snowmobiling at the family's cabin in Island Park. She took her role as big sister seriously, teaching her younger siblings the elementary skills of reading and writing at early ages. Those fun-loving, family-filled childhood years are cherished in the hearts of her siblings and cousins.
Kellie had been living in Topeka, Kan., for the past 25 years, most recently at Providence Living Center, where she had many, many friends.
She is survived by her brother, Bradley D. (Joanna) Anderson of Idaho Falls; and sister, Natalie A. (Greg) Hilker of Salt Lake City.
Services will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, at Wood Funeral Home, 273 N. Ridge Ave. in Idaho Falls.
