Guest Book

Not sure what to say?

To all:

Thank you so much for your continued prayers and kind words, expressed through this guest book. As the months have passed, not a day goes by when I do not think of my Mom, and the sacrifices she and my Dad made for all of us. We were truly blessed to have wonderful parents in our lives. And now a most important obligation has been passed on to us; to acquit ourselves, like Dorothy, to live in a welcoming manner, endowed with the Holy Spirit.

Thank you again for...

To Nancy;
I'm sorry to hear Mrs. Anderson has passed. I remember her from the band at St. V. Alot of good memories. God bless.

To the entire Anderson Family: Your mom would have LOVED the obituary. It is written in a way that truly captures her spirit and her joy for life. Her fish dinners in the Annuciation cafeteria will always be one of my favorite childhood memories. We know that your hearts are heavy now but hopefully time will allow that sadness to be replaced by warm thoughts and happy memories. Our thoughts and prayers are with you - - Grace Pisciotta Morris and Connie Pisciotta

Mary, JoAnn, John and Nancy: I was so sorry to hear your sad news. I have such vivid memories of your mom from all those many summer days and after school hours spent on Lindell St. She was truly one of a kind and will no doubt be missed by hundreds of friends and family. We lose our mothers but our memories sustain us through the rest of our lives. I know you and your families must have great and cherished memories. You're all in my thoughts.

To the Anderson Family:
Dorothy was recommended to us for catering our wedding 35 years ago by the Ondack family (Cecil and Maryann). Cecil was my mother's twin brother. Tim Ondack is my cousin. Dorothy and her crew did a fantastic job at our reception and we all enjoyed the feast as well as our guests. My family later continued to employ her crew for their wedding receptions. We are so sorry to hear of your loss and remember all the good times shared during her lifetime. May God...

Anderson Family:

Annunciation Church has lost another true pillar to the parish family. Mrs. Anderson's light will shine on through the memories of her dedication to the church and the community. Nothing will ever compare to the "Dorothy Anderson Fish Frys" but those great memories of her in the school cafeteria will be with us always.

With deepest sympahty,

Paul & Mary Weirtz

In loving memory of a wonderful person. You will be loved and missed always.

To the entire Anderson family, "adopted" & extended alike, I am truly blessed to have shared many wonderful times with all of you.
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

To All of the Anderson Family....My thoughts and prayers are with you at this difficult time. Dorothy had the prescence of mind to bring joy and laughter to everyone she ever met...and nourished not only our bodies but the souls of almost every one she ever fed.
God Blessed You All with this special lady...I am so grateful to have known her. (Love the pictures)

Dear Nancy, Mary, JoAnne, John and family,

Your mother was one of most beautiful women I've ever met. So cheerful, loving, kind and generous - a great lady of strong faith and tremendous joy. She raised 4 beautiful children and touched many lives in fond memories that will live on forever. I know, Frances, will really miss her, as we will, too. We're so thankful to have known her - she really is a "Sunflower" as her granddaughter expressed, "like a sunflower, she...
